Robshaw handed Quins captaincy
England international Chris Robshaw has been named Harlequins' club captain for the 2019/20 Premiership season.
Experienced flanker Robshaw, who skippered Quins from 2010-2014, shared the captaincy responsibilities last season with now-retired Australian rugby icon James Horwill.
The club have now decided to name the 33-year-old Englishman, who was left out of the Red Rose's World Cup squad, as outright captain for the upcoming season
Speaking to the club's website about the decision to appoint Robshaw, Harlequins Head of Rugby Paul Gustard said: "We are delighted to confirm that Chris will continue his role as captain at Harlequins this coming season.
"He was a unanimous choice among the support staff and continues to be a very popular choice amongst the players. He did an excellent job last year and helped drive standards across the club that matched his own personal ambition and tenacity.
"When appointing a captain, I wanted someone who embraced the buzz, who could adapt and challenge and whom his teammates would follow and take inspiration from. There is no doubt that, with 66 England caps and 275 Harlequins appearances, in Chris, we have that man."
