Monye made his England debut in the 39-13 victory over the Pacific Islanders at Twickenham in 2008 and started the rest of the autumn internationals against Australia, South Africa and New Zealand.
He was a key member of the England Sevens squad throughout the 2002-03 and 2003-04 IRB World Sevens Series, and was part of the team that competed in the 2005 Rugby World Cup Sevens in Hong Kong.
Something of a speedster, Monye appeared in the English Schools Athletics Association Championship before deciding to pursue rugby after Quins offered him a professional contract.
