    THE Queensland Reds have added another NRL star to their ranks for 2010 with Storm centre Will Chambers inking a lucrative two-year deal.
    
    Chambers is a member of Queensland's emerging State of Origin squad and the signing of the powerful 20-year-old is considered a major cross-code coup.
    
    The Courier-Mail revealed last month that Chambers had become the Reds major recruitment target and yesterday they landed their man.
    
    "Will spoke to us some time ago about playing rugby again and in subsequent discussions convinced us that he had a genuine desire to play for the Reds after enjoying the game as a representative schoolboy at Nudgee College," Reds performance manager Ben Whitaker said.
    
    "He is a young man with the talent, skills, physique and character to be a success as an outside back and we look forward to welcoming him into our squad."
    
    Chambers' signing comes after Mark McLinden's eye-catching Super 14 debut from the bench in the Reds' opening loss to the Bulls in Pretoria.
    Very good buy this. I think him because he's in the Barnes mole, only played league for a few seasons after playing union. Rather than signing an overated leagiue like Billy Slater.
