Harlequins fullback Ross Chisholm has penned a new two-year deal with the Aviva Premiership champions.
Chisholm will remain at the Stoop until the end of the 2014-15 season and will hope to add to his current tally of 24 appearances for the club. He crossed the line five times for Quins last season - including one memorable score against Gloucester - and Conor O'Shea is delighted that the 21-year-old has opted to stay put.
"Ross is another prodigious talent who is always looking to improve and become a better player," said O'Shea. "He does what we all like to see in a fullback which is that first and foremost he does his basics well. Once you have that you have a chance as a fullback, but when you run lines and have the pace that Ross has, then you can compete anywhere across the back three.
"Whether it be Ross putting pressure on Mike Brown and the senior wingers at the club or Luke Wallace doing so to our experienced back rowers, our recent re-signings can only be good news for the short and long term future of the team."
Chisholm added: "I've benefited from my time in the Harlequins academy, in particular the hours spent working on basic skills and tactical awareness with coaches and mentors, all of which has helped me develop my game. We're a relatively young squad with great confidence and belief in each other. It is going to be another exciting year for the club and I am delighted to have re-signed."
