Horwill Re-Signs With Australian Rugby Through 2015 World Cup

May 6 (Bloomberg) -- James Horwill signed a new two-year contract with the Australian Rugby Union and Queensland Reds Super Rugby team that takes the Wallabies’ 2011 Tri-Nations-winning captain through the 2015 World Cup.

Second-rower Horwill, who’s been restricted to 35 Test matches for Australia after injuries ruled him out of the 2010 and 2012 international seasons, also led the national team to third place at the 2011 World Cup in New Zealand.

“Obviously it’s been frustrating at times, but you have to take the bad with the good,” Horwill, 27, said in an e-mailed statement. “I’m happy to have my future resolved.”

Horwill played his most-recent Test in December 2011. He missed all Australia’s matches last year because of a ruptured hamstring that also delayed his start to the 2013 Super Rugby season and is aiming to regain his Wallabies spot for the series against the British and Irish Lions starting June 22.
