They demonstrate the wealth of talent coming through
Harlequins announced on Tuesday that five of its brightest young English talents have committed their future to the current Premiership champions.
Ollie Lindsay-Hague, Darryl Marfo and Hammersmith-born Joe Trayfoot have re-signed for the London club, along with current Harlequins Academy members Charlie Walker and Jack Clifford.
The quintet have represented England at a range of age levels and have already played important parts in Harlequins rugby this season. Excellent performances from the five include the two LV= Cup victories over Bath and Northampton Saints pre-Christmas.
All five were integral in the club’s ‘A’ League campaign and Final triumph over Saracens Storm in December, with Marfo and former Millfield School fullback Lindsay-Hague each scoring a brace of tries.
Commenting on the announcement, Academy Manager Tony Diprose said: “I am delighted that these exciting young players have further committed themselves to Harlequins.
“They are critical to the continued success of the club, demonstrate the wealth of talent coming through and I have no doubt that they will all play a major role in working to keep Harlequins at the top of the game in England and Europe.”
