Harlequins academy star, Louis Lynagh OH (2019), today signed a contract extension with the Gallagher Premiership side, confirming his long-term future in South-west London.
Lynagh, who excelled as Hampton’s Captain of Rugby in the 2018-19 season, has enjoyed an impressive start to his professional career since his debut against Leicester Tigers in October, cementing his place as a key member of the Harlequins squad.
Harlequins General Manager Billy Millard said: “We’re delighted to have Louis signed up for more on a long-term deal with Quins. Louis is an immensely determined young man with real talent.
“He has worked hard in training the last few seasons and has taken his chances with both hands this season. We’re delighted to see Louis add further depth to our stocks out wide and are excited to see how he continues to develop.”
Lynagh added: “It’s fantastic to be able to sign a new deal with Quins. It’s been great to have the opportunity to get out there in the Premiership in the last two months, and I’m looking forward to more.
“There is a lot of competition for places in the outside back unit here, which is driving standards. It’s a great place for me to continue developing my game.
“There’s a great feel around the squad at the moment. It’s a team full of potential and we know this group has the ability to go out there and win silverware. That’s something I’m excited to be a part of.”
