England prop Joe Marler has signed a new contract at Harlequins, committing himself to the club until 2016.
The 23-year-old, who is set to make his 100th senior appearance on Friday, against Stade Francais, has been a key player for Conor O’Shea’s side.
And boss O’Shea said: “We are obviously delighted that Joe has committed his future to Harlequins. It is incredible to think that at just 23, he will make his 100th senior appearance this Friday.
“He is, and will continue to be, a cornerstone in the pack and in the success of this club. Joe is developing into one of the leading loose heads in international rugby.”
Marler said: “There was never any doubt in my mind that this is where I wanted my long-term future to be.”
