'He is deceptively quick with a huge left foot' - Harlequins lock-in ex-England U20s fullback

Harlequins have announced that Aaron Morris has signed a new contract with the club.

The 24-year-old fullback, who started his career at Bedford Blues, joined Harlequins from Saracens for the 2016/17 season and has been a key member of the first-team squad this season as the Club has climbed to third in the Gallagher Premiership and reached the quarter-finals of the Challenge Cup.

Morris, who has represented England U20s and won the Junior World Cup in 2014, said he was hungry to win trophies with Harlequins under Head of Rugby Paul Gustard.

“I’m thrilled to have resigned and be a part of a team that is continually improving and looking to win things in the coming seasons,” said Morris.

“I love coming to work every day, the boys are great and the environment that Gussy and the other coaches have created is one where we work hard but have a lot of fun doing it.”

Gustard said: “Aaron is a model professional and integral to everything we are doing at the Club as we look to build sustained momentum and compete for trophies consistently.

“I have known and coached Aaron for many years, over which I have seen him mature and also improve.

“He has a very good all-round skillset, he is exceptionally coachable and is willing to listen and wanting to improve. He is deceptively quick with a huge left foot and is a player that also relishes the physical contest.

“One of his key skills is that he talks well and adds value by helping communicate space and threat on the field and is articulate and self-aware when reviewing off it.

“I feel he is another player who potentially gives us options in a few spots outside of Full-back and I am personally excited about seeing how he can meet the different positional specific needs and the varying demands that they bring.”
