Harlequins have confirmed that lock Matt Symons has penned a new deal with the Gallagher Premiership club.

Symons started with Saracens youth system in 1994 but made his professional rugby debut with Esher in 2011 making 14 appearances for them before heading to Canterbury in 2013 with his Super Rugby debut coming for Chiefs in 2014.

He returned back to England ahead of the 2015/16 season signing a deal with London Irish and following a stint with Wasps, the 30-year-old joined the Quins ahead of the 2018/19 season and has played in 72 Premiership games for the three clubs combined.

“I am loving my time here at Harlequins; it’s been a brilliant two years playing with some great people so it was an easy decision to extend my time at the Club, after chatting to Gussy and seeing the direction we are heading," he told the official website of the club.

“I am still learning every day here at Quins from having such a great coaching group and it’s clear that we have the capacity and hunger in this side to compete at the highest level, which is testament to the environment created at the training ground day-in-day-out.”

Harlequins are positioned eighth in the Gallagher Premiership table with three wins from eight games and will take on Saracens in the ninth round at Twickenham Stoop on Sunday.
