Lambert, who will continue to combine his playing duties with his role as chairman of the Rugby Players Association, is delighted to be staying put for 2019-20. “Harlequins has been a huge part of my life and my family for the best part of two decades now,” he told the club’s website.
“I feel a huge sense of pride every time I pull on the Quins jersey and I love being part of a team of players who share great challenges and incredible experiences together. “That is what rugby is about for me and these things will motivate me as much in my 17th professional season as they did in my first.” “Lamby has been a phenomenal servant to Harlequins – he is a bear of a man, is bright and has real feel for the game,” added head of rugby Paul Gustard.
