Luke Wallace commits to Harlequins

Harlequins can confirm today (Tuesday 13th January) that one of England’s most exciting back-row players, Luke Wallace, has committed his future to the London club until June 2017.

The 24 year-old, educated at Tonbridge School, is a product of the award-winning Harlequins Academy and, since making his senior debut in 2010, has made close to 100 appearances for the Club, scoring nine tries.
 
Born in St. Albans, Wallace has developed into one of the most feared back-row players in the Aviva Premiership. His tireless work rate in the loose and at the breakdown brought international recognition in 2014, representing England Saxons against Ireland Wolfhounds and the England XV side that played the Barbarians at Twickenham Stadium.
 
Wallace, who is currently studying a degree in Mathematics at the Open University, has also developed his leadership skills in recent years having captained Harlequins to LV= Cup and Aviva ‘A’ League titles during the 2012/13 season.
 
Commenting on the announcement, Wallace said: "I am very pleased to have extended my time at Harlequins. 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."
 
Harlequins Head Coach John Kingston commented: "We are absolutely delighted that Luke has chosen to extend his career with us. He is yet another product of our outstanding Academy and he exhibits a fantastic professional approach to all he does on a day to day basis. In a very committed group, no player displays a stronger desire to improve all aspects of his game – this is a quality which will undoubtedly serve him wonderfully over his future career at Harlequins."
 
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. We are looking forward to having him back from the injury he sustained in the European Rugby Champions Cup match away at Leinster, but more importantly to the impact he will have within this group for years to come."
