rory clegg harlequinsQuins are delighted to announce that Rory Clegg has extended his contract until June 2013

The 20 year old fly-half signed from Newcastle Falcons in June 2009 and made his Quins debut in the London side’s first home game of the 2009/10 season, against London Irish. He has gone on to make 21 appearances, scoring 72 points.

Having come through the England age-groups, Clegg was an integral part of this summer’s England U20s side who made it through to the final of the U20 World Cup in Argentina.

Rory Clegg says:

“I am really excited about the next few years at Quins. We have a young and vibrant squad, which can only get better and build success for the future and I am really pleased to be a part of it.

“The coaches have shown a real belief in me and, through their efforts, I feel I have really improved during my time here and hope to reward them on the pitch with my performances.”

Conor O’Shea, says:

“We are delighted that Rory has committed his future to us. At 20 he is one of the brightest talents in the country and I am sure over the coming years not alone will he continue to learn and develop from Nick Evans, he will also grow and put increasing pressure on Nick for the starting role. When Rory does take on that starting role, we will work to ensure that he has the skills set to do that for both club and country. Rory’s signature continues our commitment to develop and progress young English talent at Quins.”
