Olly Kohn, one of the most experienced and respected second row forwards playing in the Aviva Premiership, has committed his future to Harlequins.

The 31-year-old has signed a one year contract extension that will keep him with the London club until the end of the 2013-14 season.

Olly joined Harlequins from Bristol in July 2006 and made his debut in the pre-season friendly with ASM Clermont that summer. He has since made 134 appearances for the current Premiership champions and has scored four tries.

"It would be wrong to call Olly the 'daddy' of the squad but his presence in so many ways both on and off the pitch unites the players," said Harlequins Director of Rugby Conor O'Shea.

"There is no better bloke you could wish to meet in rugby, however, on the pitch there is none more physical when it comes to what the game of rugby is all about. He has developed so much in his game over the last number of years and is comfortable on the ball, and when it comes to the scrum and maul, he is the go to man. "

"We are delighted to have Olly on board and hope this is where he will play for the rest of his career."

Commenting on his contract extension Olly Kohn said, "I am very honoured to sign-up again at a great club with a great group of players who share a real ambition for further success. More exciting times lie ahead I'm sure."
