    The Reds' remaining four Wallabies returned to the franchise for full training on Monday, joining up with Quade Cooper who returned last week.

    Captain James Horwill, scrum-half Will Genia, centre Digby Ioane and wing Peter Hynes all took part in full training for the first time since the November tour of Europe, two weeks ahead of the first warm-up match against the Waratahs on January 23.

    Reds Head coach Ewen McKenzie said the return of the Wallabies to training, separated into forwards and backs on Monday gives the squad a boost.

    "We've worked pretty hard now for a couple of months and to get guys of their experience and calibre coming back in allows us to go to another level with our training," McKenzie said.

    "It's good timing for us getting our Wallabies back with trials coming up. We'll benefit from incorporating them and their experience."

    Following the Reds' trial match against the Waratahs, they will play the Crusaders in Brisbane on January 29 and the Western Force in Perth on February 5 before their opening Super 14 match against the Waratahs at Suncorp Stadium on February 13.,25883,3...5852261,00.html
