Harlequins winger Tom Williams has revealed the decision to remain at the Stoop was not difficult to make.

The 29-year-old, out of contract in the summer, agreed a two-year contract extension this week ensuring he will stay with the Premiership champions until 2015.

The Brighton-born England Sevens international has scored 52 tries in 185 appearances for the club since graduating from the Quins academy in 2004.

"The opportunity to contribute to a club playing such an exciting brand of rugby with a group of ambitious and talented players made the decision to stay an easy one," said Williams.

Diretor of rugby Conor O'Shea, who confirmed the departure of prop James Johnston to Saracens this week, added: “Tom’s form over the last 12 months has been outstanding and we are all really looking forward to him continuing that over the coming years.

“Tom has already played 185 times for the club and at 29 has some great years of rugby ahead of him.

"He is one of the club’s original Academy graduates and his willingness to work with our younger players has had a big impact on their development.”
