Wing Tom Williams has signed a two year contract extension with Harlequins that will keep him with the Premiership champions until 2015.
Not only is Williams one of the most experienced players in the Harlequins squad, he is also among its most prolific try-scorers having touched down 52 times since making his senior debut in 2004.
Williams was one of the first graduates of the club's Academy and went on to play for the England Sevens team in the 2004 IRB World Sevens Series where he contributed to an England victory in the famous Hong Kong Sevens tournament. He was a key member of the team that won the Premiership final in May 2012.
"Tom's form over the last 12 months has been outstanding and we are all really looking forward to him continuing that over the coming years," said Conor O’Shea, Harlequins Director of Rugby.
"Tom has already played 185 times for the club and at 29 has some great years of rugby ahead of him. He is one of the club's original Academy graduates and his willingness to work with our younger players has had a big impact on their development," he added.
Williams commented: "I am delighted to be staying at Harlequins for a further two years. The opportunity to contribute to a club playing such an exciting brand of rugby with a group of ambitious and talented players made the decision to stay an easy one."
