WillCollierQuins

Harlequins is delighted to announce that tight head prop duo Will Collier and Kyle Sinckler have both signed contract extensions with the Club.

Collier has re-signed until 2018, with Sinckler signing his contract until the end of the 2016/17 season.

On announcing the extensions Harlequins Head Coach John Kingston commented: "I am absolutely delighted that Will and Kyle have both signed contract extensions with Harlequins.

"They are both outstandingly talented young tight head props who I have absolutely no doubt can go on to achieve the highest honours in the English game. They have progressed hugely over recent seasons and I look forward to seeing the continued healthy competition between them for the number three shirt over the coming years.”

Will Collier graduated from the Harlequins Academy and made his senior debut in January 2011 against Wasps in the special LV= Cup match in Abu Dhabi. The 23 year old has since gone on to make 67 appearances for the London Club, and last season was named in the England Saxons squad to face Ireland and Scotland. He unfortunately missed out due to injury, but was subsequently named in the England squad to face the Barbarians in June 2014.

Collier added: "I'm delighted to commit to the club for the next three years.

"I feel Harlequins is the right environment for me to further develop my game, with a fantastic coaching set-up and playing ethos and with guys I have been playing with since I first started rugby.”

Kyle Sinckler is also a graduate from the award-winning Harlequins Academy. Since his debut in 2011, he has gone on to make 48 appearances for the Club and this season he scored his maiden try against London Welsh. The Londoner started for England against the Barbarians in June 2014 and also played in the mid-week game of England's tour of New Zealand later that summer.

Sinckler concluded: "I'm really pleased to be staying at such a great club. The club has shown so much faith in me at such a young age and I want to repay that faith by staying at Harlequins for a very long time.

"This club has great ambition and we want to win major trophies. And I want to be a part of that."
