Confirming the news, Robshaw said: “I am extremely proud to have re-signed with the Club who gave me my first chance as a player and I've cheered for since I was a child.


Robshaw, a Harlequins Academy graduate, is one of the most well-respected and hardworking players in the game.

Following the successful 2011/12 season, the one club man was once again named Premiership Player of the Season; the only player to win the award twice.


On the international stage, Robshaw has more than 50 caps for England after debuting in 2009. In 2012 Robshaw was named the captain and led his country to a memorable Test win against New Zealand as well as during the 2015 Rugby World Cup.


Heading into the 2017/18 season, 31-year-old Robshaw has made well over 200 appearances in the quartered shirt.
