Transfer News: Harlequins fan favourite signs contract extension
Harlequins is pleased to announce that one-club man Mark Lambert has signed an extension to his current deal.
The loosehead Prop joined Harlequins ahead of the 2003/4 season and has since gone on to make 239 senior appearances, making him one of the most decorated players in the Club’s history.
He was part of the squad that went 14 matches unbeaten on their way to an Aviva Premiership title victory in 2012 and was named on the bench in the Final against Leicester Tigers at Twickenham Stadium. He then started in the successful LV= Cup Final against Sale Sharks the following year.
Lambert made his 200th appearance for Quins in the 2016/17 season; one of only four players in the current squad to achieve that number, alongside Mike Brown, Chris Robshaw and Danny Care.
🗣 A message to you from club legend @marklambert3 who remains a Quin for another year.

A former England U19 and U21 representative, the front row was also called up for the England Saxons during the 2009 Churchill Cup.
Off the field, Lambert serves as an ambassador for both the Harlequins Foundation and humanitarian organisation, Future Hope, and was named Community Player of the Season at the 2017/18 Premiership Rugby Awards for his outstanding contribution in the charity sector.
He is also the RPA Chairman and has held that role since 2017 ensuring player welfare is central to every decision across the current rugby landscape. He has been integral to key decisions around the provision of in-season rest weeks and the existing domestic season structure.
