Dom Shipperley: Has signed a new two-year deal
Ben Tapuai, Dom Shipperley and Rod Davies have all agreed new two-year deals with the Reds.
The trio played key roles in the Queensland side's late charge into the Super Rugby play-offs - with Tapuai and Shipperley going on to earn places in Australia's training set-up.
"Despite their young age Ben, Dom and Rod have all produced amazing results in our Rugby program, so it's extremely pleasing to retain their services heading into what will be the peak of their careers," said Reds coach Ewen McKenzie.
"Our entire squad is voting with their feet and choosing to stay in Queensland and we'll return a more experienced and stronger group next season from the adversity we faced in 2012."
The trio follow Will Genia, Quade Cooper, Digby Ioane, Ben Lucas and Anthony Faingaa in committing their futures to the Reds.
