Chris Robshaw commits to Harlequins

Chris Robshaw will remained at Harlequins until at least 2020 after putting pen to paper on a new deal.

A former Millfield student, he made his debut for Harlequins in the Championship 2005 and quickly established himself as a favourite among supporters as the Club regained Premiership status.

He was handed the Harlequins captaincy in 2010 and led the club to its most successful period in the professional era winning the Challenge Cup in 2011 and the Premiership the following year.

On the international stage, Robshaw has more than 50 caps for England after debuting in 2009. In 2012 Robshaw was named captain and led his country to a memorable Test win against New Zealand as well as during the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

He said: “I am extremely proud to have re-signed with the Club who gave me my first chance as a player and I’ve cheered for since I was a child.

“I thank Harlequins and the supporters for the incredible continued support that’s been shown to me. John Kingston and the coaching team have recruited well and we have our sights firmly set on getting silverware this year. I look forward to seeing all the supporters at The Stoop in September for what’s sure to be an exciting season.”

 

Director of Rugby, John Kingston added: “I am absolutely delighted that we have agreed a further contract extension with Chris. He continues to be a fantastic advert for Harlequins in the way he conducts himself both on and off the pitch.

“His influence within the group is immense and I know, in talking at length with him, he has an incredible appetite to win further major domestic and European honours with the only club he has represented.

“This is brilliant news for Harlequins at a time when we are preparing for what will be an incredibly exciting season, back in the Champions Cup.”
