CHRIS ROBSHAW COMMITS HIS FUTURE TO HARLEQUINS
Thursday, 10th August 2017 @ 12:00

HARLEQUINS IS THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE TODAY (THURSDAY 10TH AUGUST) THAT ENGLAND BACK ROW CHRIS ROBSHAW HAS RE-SIGNED WITH THE CLUB UNTIL 2020.



Confirming the news, Robshaw 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.

Robshaw, a Harlequins Academy graduate, is one of the most well-respected and hardworking players in the game.

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

As Harlequins asserted themselves among the best clubs in the Premiership, Robshaw was at the forefront with his powerful all court game, high work rate and natural leadership abilities.

In the 2008/09 season Robshaw was named Premiership Player of the Year and was handed the Harlequins captaincy in 2010.

Under Robshaw’s leadership, the Club enjoyed its most successful period in the professional era as the back rower led Harlequins to the 2011 Amlin Challenge Cup and the 2012 Aviva Premiership; scoring a try against Leicester Tigers in the Final.

Following the successful 2011/12 season, the one club man was once again named Premiership Player of the Season; the only player to win the award twice.

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.

The Redhill-born back rower was also a crucial element to England’s unbeaten 2016, playing in every match of the RBS Six Nations Grand Slam, the 3-0 whitewash of Australia and the four Old Mutual Wealth Series wins.

Heading in to the 2017/18 season, 31-year-old Robshaw has made well over 200 appearances in the quartered shirt.

On Robshaw’s re-signing, Harlequins’ 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."

Can't believe he couldn't have walked into any club he wanted. Eddie Jones recent apology won't have hurt his value either. So great news that he's staying with the club

Great news. A superb servant to the club and one of the players that you know the opposition dread playing against.

Great news. Thank you Chris for staying. He's already a legend but what a legend he'll be once he retires with a World Cup winners medal in 2019, European Championship Cup winner and at least another 2 Prem titles to come.

The heartbeat of our team. For me, the best back row player in the Northern hemisphere.

Brilliant news! Much as others have said, my thoughts are that it is fantastic that we are able to retain such a talented hard working individual. Here's to many more years watching Robshaw(s) at his best. Without a doubt one of the top 6.5s in Europe, if not the world!
