James Horwill is a consistent performer in the second row, rarely putting a foot wrong. He is a solid carrier of the ball in heavy traffic, able to make crucial metres when the game has slowed down. He was named as captain of The Reds in 2008 and led them to the Super Rugby title in 2011. He made his Test debut in 2007 against Fiji, and apart from missing out on selection for the 2007 World Cup, has been selected for every game that he has been available for. Horwill will captain Australia at the 2011 World Cup.
