To re-sign with the Queensland Australia Rugby World Cup 2023. Harry Wilson, a backrower, turned down "interest from overseas clubs". Wilson rose through the Queensland rugby ranks, having excelled as a young student at the famous Gregory Terrace in the GPS tournament in Brisbane.

The loose forward later went on to shine for the green and gold at the U20 world championships in Argentina four years ago, beginning the match against France at blindside flanker. Wilson played for the young Wallabies, won Queensland Premier Rugby Player of the Year honours, and then made his Reds debut the following year.

Wilson has now played 53 times for Queensland, and two years ago, he helped the Reds end a two-decade Super Rugby AU title drought. Wilson said, when asked about his choice to re-sign with the Reds, "there's plenty left" for the squad to do; he wants to help the club succeed Australia Rugby World Cup and in Test matches.

Wilson stated in a statement, "I adore playing for Queensland; here is my home. We have a fantastic team at Ballymore, and there is still plenty we can accomplish while wearing the Queensland uniform. With the Rugby World Cup and Lions Tour approaching, Australia Rugby World Cup is in an exciting period. I'm quite inspired to participate in it throughout the next

Wilson made his Test debut against the All Blacks in 2020 after making an impression with the Reds at the Super Rugby level. The budding star, though, has since been in and out of the national squad. Wilson was released from Dave Rennie's Wallabies despite having promising talent.

Wilson didn't make Eddie Jones' initial Wallabies squad earlier in the month either, but he was called up on the final day of the training camp. The Reds' No. 8 has pledged his allegiance to Australian RWC for at least the foreseeable future, but Wilson "had a fair amount of interest from overseas clubs."

Sam Cordingley, general manager of professional rugby for the Reds, praised Harry's decision to continue playing for Queensland Rugby through 2025. "Harry received a good deal of interest from foreign clubs." He'll be extremely motivated to succeed with the Reds and the Wallabies over the next two seasons, I have no question about that.

Wilson has re-signed with the Reds along with colleagues Fraser McReight, Tate McDermott, Tom Lynagh, Kalani Thomas, Matt Faessler, Seru Uru, and Angus Blyth.

Australia Rugby World Cup 2023 to wear white under contentious colour-blindness policy

As part of a disputed new World Rugby policy to assist spectators with colour blindness, the Wallabies have agreed to wear a white shirt against Portugal at the Rugby World Cup and might have to refrain from playing specific nations in the future while donning gold.

World Rugby hinted at a new guideline for 2021 that will have teams adjust their jersey colours when they pose an issue for those with colour vision deficit (CVD), also known as colour blindness. Examples of these hues are red and green.

According to World Rugby, 1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 women have a CVD, including the organization's head Bill Beaumont. The rule was supposed to go into effect in 2025, but World Rugby has already started working with nations, including Australia's RWC 2023 team, to prevent colour conflicts at this year's World Cup.

On October 1, the Wallabies play Portugal in their last pool C match in Saint-Etienne. However, Australia's gold shirt, which turned more orange in 2021, has a little colour conflict with both Portugal's primary red jersey and their alternate green jersey.
