Former Wallabies captain James Horwill has become the latest Australian player to make the move to European rugby, announcing he will join English side Harlequins after the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
The Queensland Reds announced on Thursday that Horwill is joining Harlequins on a three-year deal after the World Cup.
The 58-times capped Wallaby said it was a tough decision to leave the Reds.
“As hard as it will be to leave Ballymore, my teammates, the staff and all my fans and friends in Queensland, I’ve been offered a fantastic opportunity with Harlequins to experience Rugby in another part of the world and this is right for me at this stage of my rugby career,” he said.
“I’m completely committed to helping the Reds and Australia achieve success in this World Cup year and then I’ll turn my attention to the next chapter of my life in Rugby with Harlequins.”
