O’Shea extends contract at Harlequins

Harlequins director of rugby Conor O’Shea has signed a new contract at The Stoop.

O’Shea has committed himself to Quins until 2014, as have head coach John Kingston and skills coach Collin Osborne.

“This is an exciting time to be part of Harlequins,” said the former Ireland international, who arrived at the club in March 2010.

“Our aim is to continue to develop and play the game in the way we believe it should be and to bring the success to the supporters that they deserve.

“It is also important to recognise the great contribution made by John and Collin over the years. We are looking forward to continuing to work together over the coming seasons.”

Osborne has been associated with Harlequins for 21 years, while Kingston joined in the summer of 2001 and was appointed head coach in 2008.

Quins chief executive David Ellis said: “I am delighted that Conor, John and Collin have renewed their contracts. All three provide a wealth of knowledge and experience.

“I, like all our supporters, look forward to seeing our squad continue to grow and develop under the expert guidance of our talented coaching staff.”
