Jack Clifford commits to Harlequins

Harlequins have today announced that Jack Clifford, has committed his future to the club.
Having joined the Harlequins Academy structure aged 13, the former Cranleigh player has made close to 40 senior appearances for the Londoners since his debut in 2012, scoring eight tries.
Able to play across the back row, Clifford, 22, has had a stellar career at age group level captaining England U20s to the 2013 Junior World Cup as well as the Six Nations that same year.
He said: “I am really pleased to have re-signed for this great Club. I have been associated with Harlequins for close to ten years and I can’t think of anywhere better to be as I continue to gain experience and develop my career.
“There are a number of influential and experienced players within the squad and I am looking forward to continuing to learn within such a competitive and highly skilled back row.”
Director of Rugby Conor O’Shea added: “Jack is one of a new breed of players coming through the system. For me he has the potential to become one of the very best players in world rugby.
“He has had to be patient with injury holding him back in recent times, but in the last 12 months he has begun to really kick on; I can see his graph continuing to rise in the coming 12 months.
“He knows the competition we have in our back row means he will have to be on his game every week. Jack has potential to be a great leader within the group and we will work at developing that side of his game too.”
