The Reds have made strides in securing their future success by signing their young wallaby trio of prop James Slipper, flanker Liam Gill and lock Rob Simmons, have all re-signed until at least the end of 2015.
The three forwards have played a massive role in the last three Super Rugby campaigns and amassed a combined 154 caps for the reds and 73 caps for Australia. They are seen as a key part of the Reds structure and provide some much needed muscle to go with their electric backline.
“James, Liam and Rob are not only very talented players but also great individuals that are passionate about Queensland and what we want to achieve here,” Reds Head Coach Richard Graham said.
“To secure their services for a further two seasons is significant for our Rugby program and they’ll have major roles to play as we move forward together as a group. They’re all leaders in their own right with James having captained the Reds, Liam having captained the Australian Under 20s and Rob being given ownership of running our lineout in Queensland. I congratulate all three on their decision to remain in Queensland and wish them all the best for the next stage of their careers.”
