Louis Lynagh, son of Australia World Cup winner Michael, has signed a new contract with Harlequins.

The 20-year-old wing has come through the Quins academy and impressed this season in the senior side.

Lynagh has scored two tries in five starts so far this season and he has been rewarded with a long-term contract extension.

“It’s fantastic to be able to sign a new deal with Quins,” he said.

“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.”

Although his father Michael won the World Cup with Australia in 1991, Louis has represented England at youth level.
