Harlequins is proud to confirm today (Thursday 27th July) that Harlequins Academy member James Lang has extended his time with the Club.

Confirming the announcement, Lang said: “I'm very excited to have re-signed for the Club, I've really enjoyed my first season and have learnt a lot which I intend to build on.

“I struggled with a couple of injuries last year which kept me out for a bit but I’m fit and healthy now and really looking forward to what’s ahead.

“Playing alongside Nick Evans last year helped me hugely and I have learnt a great deal just watching him play and train. He's now taken up a coaching role and has been heavily involved with pre-season so far. I feel that both myself and the team will benefit from that a great deal.”

22-year-old Lang joined Harlequins in the summer of 2016 from Rugby Gogledd Cymru (RGC) in North Wales.

A strong kicker – both out of hand and at goal – Lang debuted for the Club away to Exeter Chiefs in September 2016.

In his first season with Harlequins, Lang went on to make five further appearances; scoring a late penalty in the comeback win away to Gloucester Rugby.

On Lang’s re-signing, Harlequins’ Director of Rugby, John Kingston added: “James showed in his first season with us, a considerable amount of potential in a key position. He is an extremely mature player with a real appetite to improve.

“I am, therefore, delighted that we have extended his contract further and look forward to his continuing development under our outstanding Coaching Team.”

Good news. Looks like he could be a decent prospect. Would be great if we could finally bring through a 9 and/02 10 to become first team (squad or starter) regulars. We never seem to get anywhere with 10s, and a few 9s have shown promise then left. However Waters and Lang can buck that trend

I think hes a great prospect , Spoke with him at the Quinssa dinner and his enthusiasm about working with Nick Evans again along with Catrakillis this season was infectous

Did his time in the Welsh Premiership , so should know how to handle himself .

Oh that's good news. I could've sworn someone said the club was cutting him loose - that never made sense to me.
