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.”
