Harlequins have announced that back-row Archie White has extended his stay at the club after signing a new contract.

White has been with the Quins since his professional rugby debut with the club that came in the 2015/16 season and has gone on to make 55 appearances since then.

A product of Harlequins Academy, the 24-year-old also featured for them 14 times in the ongoing campaign including eight matches during the Six Nations phase earlier in the year.

“It’s an amazing feeling to re-sign with Quins once again. This team is looking to build something incredible, and I can’t wait to try and play a big part in that," he told the club's official website.

“The squad have both the Heineken Champions Cup and the back end of the Gallagher Premiership coming up in the next few weeks so the whole Club is really excited.

“Harlequins is the Club that I have been a part of from my school years so I’m over the moon to extend my stay.”

Harlequins head coach Tabai Matson is pleased with the news of White re-signing with the club.

“We’re thrilled to have Archie re-sign with Harlequins. Over the last few months, he has really impressed the whole coaching group and has become a crucial part of our forward pack.

“Archie made his senior debut aged 18 and has now been part of the first team squad for seven seasons. He’s worked extremely hard and it’s a testament to our amazing Academy programme here at Quins.

“This season we have seen him grow as a player and a leader and has even captained our Premiership Cup side.

“We can’t wait to watch him continue his development here at Quins and we’re all excited for his future in the famous Quarters.”
