Harlequins star Wallace signs new contract

Back-row Luke Wallace has signed a new contract with Harlequins that keeps him at The Stoop until June 2017.

The 24-year-old came through the Quins academy and, since making his senior debut in 2010, has made close to 100 appearances for the club, scoring nine tries.

Wallace, who is currently studying a degree in Mathematics at the Open University, captained Harlequins to LV= Cup and Aviva ‘A’ League titles during the 2012-13 season.

International recognition arrived last year when he played for England Saxons against Ireland Wolfhounds and the England XV that took on the Barbarians at Twickenham Stadium.

Wallace said: “I feel privileged to be a part of this great squad and to be in a position to develop and learn alongside some of the best back-row talents in the country.

“It was an easy decision to continue my time with Harlequins, the club that I began my professional career with, and I’m looking forward to the exciting challenges that the coming years will present.”

Director of rugby Conor O’Shea added: “At 24, Luke already has a wealth of experience and from my point of view he is just going to get better and better.”
