Kane Douglas


Test lock Kane Douglas joins the Reds on a three-year contract, after returning home to Australia following a season with Irish club Leinster. The 26-year-old is an imposing figure standing at 202cm and weighing 119kg, but also brings with him significant experience, having already played 75 Super Rugby games and 14 Test matches since making the step up to professional rugby in 2010. Douglas made his Super Rugby debut for the Waratahs in 2010 and played his first Test for the Wallabies in 2012. In 2014 he made the decision to experience rugby overseas and moved to Leinster to play in the European PRO12 competition. Douglas was a key member of the Wallabies 2015 Rugby World Cup squad, but suffered a serious knee injury in the Final against the All Blacks and is expected to miss much of the 2016 Super Rugby season.
