Dennis and Horne re-commit to Waratahs
July 28, 2013
Dennis has signed a deal to keep him at the 'Tahs until 2015 while Horne has committed his future to the side until 2014. Both played against the British & Irish Lions with Dennis captaining the side.
"I have really enjoyed my time with the Wallabies and I'm really keen to play as many more Tests as I can in the gold jersey, plus it's really exciting to be around the Waratahs," Dennis said. "I still feel as if I can achieve more and I really want to keep working hard to try and get back in the Test fold and contribute to winning a first ever Super Rugby title here with the Waratahs."
Horne turned out against the Lions in the second Test and he is looking to add to his 15 caps. Horne said: "Representing my country means a great deal to me so I'm really pleased to be staying in Australia, especially with so much to look forward to in the coming seasons. The opportunity to continually push myself and improve was in my decision, as was the chance to be a part of the continued strengthening of rugby in NSW, I am really exciting at what I think this group can achieve."
