Green extends his contract with the Harlequins.

Tyrone Green, a former South African under-20 winger, has extended his contract with Harlequins in the United Kingdom.

Tyrone Green, a former South African under-20 winger, has extended his contract with Harlequins in the United Kingdom.

Green, whose lightning speed has propelled him to the top of the Premiership as one of the most popular and in-form players, will remain with the club, despite his desire to play for the Springboks.

Green’s long-term future is likely to lie in England, and if he is overlooked by the Bok coaching staff, it won’t be surprising if England comes knocking when his five-year residence time is up.

Green has been an instant hit at the Stoop since his arrival, forming a backline with England whizzkid Marcus Smith and Springbok Andre Esternhuizen.

Green remarked of his new contract, “I’m very thrilled to re-sign with Quins.” I’ve enjoyed my time here in this jersey, and it was incredible to go all the way and win the championship in my first season.

“I chose Harlequins because they are known for playing the type of aggressive, courageous rugby that I enjoy. It plays to my abilities as a player, so I look forward to going out on the field and training every day.

“Re-signing is excellent. I’m excited to continue on this adventure with this group, and we want to continue to grow and win.”

“It’s fantastic that Tyrone has signed a new deal to stay with the Club,” Harlequins Senior Coach Tabai Matson stated. He’s a fierce competitor with some of the league’s most dangerous footwork and attacking instincts.

“As a team, we take ourselves in our ability to play some fantastic rugby, and Tyrone is one of the best instances of the Harlequins Way.”

Green’s departure, though, is another another illustration of how South African franchises struggle to retain their players, despite the fact that many of them go on to become household names in Europe. Green departed the Lions when he was 21 years old.
