Morris joined Harlequins from Saracens in 2016, he made the first of his ten appearances for the club in the Anglo-Welsh Cup against Exeter Chiefs, scoring an impressive try in the 29-15 victory.

Morris, who was a member of the team which won the 2014 Junior World Cup, is a versatile player and is equally adept on the wing.

Confirming the news, Harlequins Director of Rugby, John Kingston said: "I am delighted that we have agreed a contract extension with Aaron Morris.

"In his first year at Harlequins, he has shown himself to be a highly accomplished full back who provides genuine competition for places in this position.

"He is currently recovering from a  shoulder operation and is expected to be fit in time for some of the pre-season games in August.

"He has a superb positive attitude to all that is asked of him and is a tremendous asset both on and off the pitch,"

Commenting on the news, the 22-year-old added: "I am thrilled to be extending my time at Harlequins. I thoroughly enjoyed my first year at the club with it being everything I hoped it would be prior to signing.

"The whole experience has been great from day one and I can’t wait to carry on wearing the shirt in the hope to bring more success for this talented squad, the club and its amazing fans,"
