Adam Jones signs new contract with Harlequins

  • Adam Jones has signed a new contract with Harlequins
  • The 34-year-old earned 95 caps for Wales before quitting international rugby in January
  • Three-time Grand Slam-winner Jones has made four appearances in the Premiership so far this season
Wales and British Lions legend Adam Jones has signed a one-year contract extension with Aviva Premiership side Harlequins.

“I’m chuffed to bits to have re-signed for such a prestigious club,” said the former Ospreys and Cardiff Blues man.

“I’m really enjoying my rugby here at Harlequins and it’s great to see the wealth of talent coming through the ranks.

“It’s an exciting place to be right now and I’m grateful to both Conor O’Shea and John Kingston for giving me the opportunity to continue here.”

The 34-year-old Jones has made six appearances for Harlequins in all competition so far this season and has impressed with his commitment to the Quins cause.

“Since Adam arrived over the summer, his impact on the group cannot be understated,” said Quins director of rugby O’Shea.

“He has been, and will continue to be, a huge influence on the whole group through his demeanour and professionalism.

“He has worked tirelessly with all the front row members and has taken time to come down to do some sessions with our Academy Elite Player Development Group.

“Most importantly, he is still a competitor who wants to win things and I have no doubt he will help us hugely in that quest. We are delighted he has committed for another year.”
