Harlequins academy manager Tony Diprose expects his latest graduates to help the club remain top of the tree in England and Europe.

Full back Ollie Lindsay-Hague, prop Darryl Marfo and back rower Joe Trayfoot were confirmed as having re-signed for the Stoop outfit this week, along with current academy stars winger Charlie Walker and flanker Jack Clifford.

The quintet have represented England at a range of age levels and have already played important parts in Harlequins rugby this season - including excellent performances in LV= Cup victories over Bath and Northampton Saints before Christmas.

All five were integral in the club’s Aviva ‘A’ League success, with Marfo and former Millfield School full-back Lindsay-Hague each scoring a brace of tries in the final win over Saracens in December.

Diprose said: “They are critical to the continued success of the club and demonstrate the wealth of talent we have coming through.

"I have no doubt that they will all play a major role in working to keep Harlequins at the top of the game in England and Europe.”
