Chris Robshaw stays at Harlequins


Chris Robshaw has committed his future to Harlequins after signing a contract extension to keep him at the Premiership club until the end of the 2015-16 season.

The back-row forward, who has captained England 16 times since the 2012 Six Nations campaign, will also continue as Quins skipper this season. The Harlequins director of rugby, Conor O'Shea, said: "I think it would be an understatement to say that this is great news for the club and all of its supporters."
