Harlequins have announced that prop Will Collier will leave the Premiership club at the end of the ongoing season.

Collier started playing for Rosslyn Park before graduating through Harlequins Academy. He made his debut for the club in the Anglo-Welsh Cup game against Wasps in 2011 and has since then featured in 240 games across 13 seasons.

The 33-year-old played a key role in Harlequins' Premiership title victory in 2012 and 2021 and had played for England on two occasions in 2017. He is now linked with a move to Castres.

“Having been part of Harlequins since the age of 14, I have been lucky enough to call The Stoop home for almost 20 years," he told the club's official website.

"I have been a lifelong fan of this Club and playing here has been a dream come true. Some of my greatest friends and memories have come from my time at Quins.

“It has been a tough decision to leave but I feel now is the right time to take on a new challenge and adventure in France.

"To our incredible fans, the staff, and the coaches, and all the players I have taken the field with, I want to say a heartfelt thank you. It’s been some journey. I look forward to an exciting finish to our season. COYQ!”

Harlequins are positioned sixth in the Gallagher Premiership table with nine wins from 17 matches.
