Former Australian captain James Horwill joined Harlequins for the 2015/16 season from Super XV side Queensland Reds.
Having made his Super XV debut in 2006, he left The Reds with over 100 senior appearances and as its longest serving captain. In 2011, the second-row led the franchise to its first professional title, beating the Crusaders in the final.
Having represented his country at U21 and ‘A’ level, he made his international Test debut in 2007 against Fiji. In 2011, the 34 year-old was named Wallabies captain and led Australia to a Tri-Nations title and a third place finish in the 2011 Rugby World Cup. Horwill was also captain during the historic 2013 British and Irish Lions Series.
Known for his strong leadership skills, Horwill brings a fierce passion and a relentless work rate to Harlequins and will be a valuable lineout operator.
Julian Donnelly, the Managing Director of James Rosa Associates said “We are thrilled to be able to extend our involvement with Harlequins, particularly given the significance of this being their 150th anniversary. We wish James, Will, and the rest of the team the very best of luck for the season ahead”
