Key back-rowers Liam Wright and Angus Scott-Young have both signed contract extensions with the Queensland Reds.

Captain Wright and workhorse Scott-Young both passed 50 appearances for the Reds this year and will stay on at Ballymore until at least the end of the 2022 Super Rugby campaign.

Wright - who made his debut for the Wallabies in 2019 - endured a frustrating 2021 campaign with the 23-year-old sidelined for the majority of the season with a foot injury but he returned in time to play in Queensland's Super Rugby AU grand final win over the Brumbies.

The 24-year-old Scott-Young, the son of former Wallabies forward Sam Scott-Young, was one of only two players to feature in all 14 of Queensland's games in 2021, starting all but one.

Wright and Scott-Young are two of 11 Reds players to have signed new deals after their successful campaign this year.
