Harlequins have announced that backrow forward Alex Dombrandt has extended his contract following two successful years at the club.
The 22-year-old, from Croydon, has made 37 Harlequins appearances, scoring 16 tries in the famous Quarters since signing ahead of the 2018/2019 season.
A graduate of Cardiff Metropolitan University, where he represented Wales at U20 level, Dombrandt is renowned for his powerful running and offload game, demonstrating his physical strengths in his first two seasons at the Club.
Following his first season at Harlequins, and his first professional season in elite rugby, Dombrandt received a host of accolades including being named both the Supporters' Player of the Season (voted for by Harlequins supporters) and the Players' Player of the Season (voted for by the squad). He was also named in the BT Sport Team of the Year.
At the conclusion of the 2018/19 season, Dombrandt was selected alongside Marcus Smith and Joe Marchant for England's Quilter Cup match against the Barbarians at Twickenham, where he scored two tries. Since then, Dombrandt has remained a part of Eddie Jones’ training squads, having been involved in training camps in the lead up to the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
So far, in the 2019/20 season, Dombrandt has played 13 matches across the Gallagher Premiership, Heineken Champions Cup and Premiership Rugby Cup, scoring five tries.
