Australia captain James Horwill signs a new two-year contract with the Reds.

James Horwill has admitted his delight after signing a new two-year contract with the Reds.

The 27-year-old, who is the current Australian captain, has made 87 appearances for the club since making his debut in 2006.

"I've made no secrets about what playing for the Reds and Wallabies means to me, so I couldn't be happier to have the contract finalised and my future settled," Horwill told reporters at a press conference.

"We've created a pretty special environment here at the Reds over the past few years but we still feel there is plenty we can achieve as a group, beginning with winning another Super Rugby title this year.

"On a personal level, to play 100 games for Queensland would be a massive honour, so to now have an opportunity to be within reach of that mark is something that will be exciting as the time gets closer."

Horwill is expected to be available for the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
