Harlequins centre George Lowe has signed a contract to extend his stay at the club until the end of the 2015/16 season.
Lowe, still only 23 years old, has already achieved a great deal at Harlequins. He has represented the England U20 team during the Six Nations and Junior World Championship in 2009. In 2012 he was called up for England's tour of South Africa where he was given a start against the Southern Barbarians.
Most importantly for Harlequins, Lowe has represented the club in over 100 matches and scored 24 tries. During this time, he played a vital role in Harlequins' success in winning the Aviva Premiership in the 2011/12 season.
"People will probably ask to check his birth certificate when they hear that George is still only 23 and has already played over 100 times for the club, starting in the XVs that have won the Amlin Challenge in 2011, the Aviva Premiership in 2012 and the LV= Cup in 2013," said Harlequins Director of Rugby, Conor O'Shea.
"He has incredible experience for someone of his age and in that respect he is now maturing as a player.
This experience, coupled with George's physical capabilities, should see him move his game on to another level in the coming years. It is really exciting for everyone here at Harlequins knowing what he can achieve, and that he wants to commit to doing it here with this club is a great thing."
Lowe himself is very excited that he was given the opportunity to continue his career at the club where it all started.
"As soon as I was offered a new contract at Harlequins I knew I was going to stay. I have grown up at this club and know all the players and coaching staff really well, so it was a very easy decision to make," said Lowe.
"It's always an honour to wear the Harlequins shirt and I'm looking forward to achieving more with this group of players over the coming seasons."
