Wallaby lock Simmons signs for Waratahs from Reds
Sydney - Australian international lock Rob Simmons has
signed for the Waratahs from their fierce Super Rugby rivals Reds for the next
two seasons, the team said on Thursday.
Simmons, 28, who has played for the Reds since 2009, was
released by Queensland at the end of the last Super Rugby season and went on
"I gave the decision to come to NSW a lot of careful
consideration and decided the move was right," said Simmons, who played
for the Wallabies in last weekend's 35-29 Bledisloe Cup loss to New Zealand.
"Now I'm really looking forward to the challenge of
helping the Waratahs to win another Super Rugby title."
Simmons has played 73 times for Australia after making his
Test rugby debut in 2010 and has 114 Super Rugby caps.
