Harlequins second row puts pen to paper on new deal

By RugbyPass
Ben Glynn signs contract extension

Harlequins have today announced that second row Ben Glynn has extended his time with the Club.


Confirming the announcement, Glynn said: “I’m really excited about extending my contract with Harlequins.”

“I’ve been enjoying my rugby and I’m looking forward to continuing to work with this great group of players and coaches.”

Glynn initially joined Harlequins from Bristol Rugby in the summer of 2017, as injury dispensation for Sam Twomey, and has since made 12 appearances; playing in both the second and back row.

Debuting at the London Double Header against London Irish, Glynn was nominated for October’s DHL Supporters’ Player of the Month and scored his first try for the Club against Worcester Warriors in the Anglo-Welsh Cup.

Harlequins Director of Rugby, John Kingston, added: “I’m absolutely delighted that we’ve extended the contract of Ben Glynn.”

“We initially signed him for one year, but we’ve been extremely impressed with his progression and we’re thrilled he’s extended his deal at Harlequins.”

Ireland and South Africa share the same player development dilemma

These guys will be utility players Nick it cannot be helped because coaches cannot help themselves. Rassie looks at players like these and sees the ability to cover multiple positions without losing much. It allows the 6-2 or 7-1. He wont change his coaching style or strategy for one player. At provincial level players like these are indispensable. If there is an injury to your starting 12 but your back up 12 is a bit iffy then a coach is going to go with the back up 10 who is gold and who can play a good 12. Damian Willemse for the Springboks is an obvious case, for the Stormers its the same. Dobson plays him at 12 or 15, with Gelant in the team he plays 12 but if Gelant goes down he doesnt go for his back up 15, he just puts Willemse there. With Frawley its the same at international and provincial level. He just slots in wherever. Frans Steyn made a career out of it. He was much maligned though as a youngster as he never fully developed into any role. He then went to Japan and France to decide for himself what kind of player he was, put on muscle and retained his big boot, ran over players and booted the ball long and came back into the Springboks after about 3 years away and was then certain about how he wanted to play the game no matter what position. Coaches cannot help themselves because they only want what is best for their teams and that means putting your most talented players on even if it means you cause them some discomfort. Sometimes players need to decide how they want to play the game and then adapt that to every position and let the coach decide how they want to use them.
