Rory Clegg commits future to Harlequins
England Under 20s fly half Rory Clegg has signed a two-year extension to his current contract at Harlequins.
The 20-year-old joined the club back in 2009 and has scored 71 points in 21 appearances for the club. Clegg is one of the most gifted youngsters in the English game.
"We are delighted that Rory has committed his future to us.
At 20 he is one of the brightest talents in the country and I am sure over the coming years not alone will he continue to learn and develop from Nick Evans [Kiwi fly half]," said director of rugby Connor O'Shea.
Clegg has a number of attributes that should ensure he stays as one of the more important players in the club. There is no other club in the country that can offer Clegg
the security and opportunity he needs.
Player attributes
Clegg is a very clever and innovative player on the field. He can see passes that are impossible to defend against in the middle of the pitch. This means he can set-up
a counter attack in a split second if Harlequins is on the defensive.
He's still physically maturing as a player despite the fact his strength is very impressive. Any fly half in the game must be able to take a lot of aggressive tackles and
challenges. This is part of Clegg's game that will only get better.
Pace is everything to a productive fly half and Clegg has this in spades. His pace means he can be effective at attacking the defence when the team goes forward. It also
means he can get back quickly to provide an extra body in the Harlequins defence.
"I am really excited about the next few years at Quins.
We have a young and vibrant squad, which can only get better and build success for the future and I am really pleased to be a part of it," added Clegg.
Betting advice
Back Clegg to succeed in any game he plays in. Remember at fly half he'll have more chances to kick points, which will mean he has a better chance of being top points scorer
in any game.
