Former England captain and Harlequins veteran Chris Robshaw has further committed to his Aviva Premiership side by signing a long term deal with the club.
Robshaw has signed a new contract that will keep him at the club until 2020. He has said to the media; “I am extremely proud to have re-signed with the club that gave me my first chance as a player and I’ve cheered for since I was a child,”
Although he has committed to his club, his national boss Eddie Jones has not taken him out of plans for the future of English Rugby, with Robshaw not dropping in form as he racks up the years of experience.
Jones set out on the summer tour of Argentina with a goal of building strong leaders in the England set up, being why Robshaw plays such an influential part with England.
John Kingston Director of Rugby at Harlequins has backed this by saying; “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,” and this is no different when he puts on the England shirt.
