Harlequins re-sign one flanker but confirm four departures

Harlequins have announced that Academy product Luke Wallace has signed a new deal with the Club

The 31-year-old has recommitted his future to the Club as the Quins centurion looks to add to his 186 appearances in the Famous Quarters over two stints at The Stoop.

Making an explosive impact as he first emerged within the senior team during the 2011/12 campaign, Wallace was shortlisted for the LV= Breakthrough and Land Rover Discovery of the Season awards in his first senior year.

Wallace had spells away from Harlequins between stints in South West London, joining Coventry in the summer of 2019 before switching to Leicester Tigers ahead of the 2020/21 season. In May 2021, Wallace returned to the Quarters and helped Harlequins secure the Club’s second Gallagher Premiership title.

A long-time servant of the Club and a man well-versed with the Harlequins Way, Wallace is one of a select group of players to have helped to lift both of the team’s Premiership wins, first in 2012 before the eventual 2021 title.

“It’s great to sign on again with Quins.” Wallace said. “It’s been fantastic to be back at this club over the last two seasons and I’m delighted to recommit. This is my boyhood club and I’m always proud to pull on the jersey.

“This is a special team that has proved its quality as the only team to retain a top-four spot from last season. It’s exciting to have the chance to go back-to-back in the Premiership, and further again next year.”
