Harlequins hooker Rob Buchanan has signed a new two-year contract.
Buchanan, 20, is regarded as one of the country’s best prospects and made his senior debut against Saracens at Wembley last month.
He has also played for England at Under-16, Under-18 and Under-20 levels.
“Rob is one of the best up and coming English hookers,” said Quins head coach John Kingston.
“He is a joy to work with and has already made an impressive impact at senior level.
“We look forward to developing him to his full potential to reach the heights of our other home-grown players that are already playing for England.”
Buchanan said: “I am very excited about being part of this Harlequins squad going forward.
“I feel this is the best place for my development under the guidance of the club’s quality coaching team.”
