England flanker Chris Robshaw believes Harlequins are on the "verge of great things" after signing a new long-term deal at the club.

The 24-year-old has captained Quins to Friday's Amlin Challenge Cup final, while he also led England against the Australian Barbarians and the New Zealand Maori last summer.

And Robshaw, who has signed a three-year contract, is confident that a golden era is just around the corner for the Stoop-based outfit.

Robshaw said: "Harlequins are a great club and one which I think is on the verge of great things in the coming years.

"We have a squad with a great mix of youth and experience and we are trying to play a brand of rugby that will excite and challenge.

"I believe that through Harlequins a number of us can achieve our aims of playing for a winning club at the highest level whilst also pursuing our dreams of playing for our country.

"It is a real honour to be captain of one of the oldest rugby clubs in the world and certainly one of the most recognisable and in the short term I can't wait to lead the boys out on Friday in the Amlin Challenge final, which will be our first major final since 2004."
