Harlequins hooker Chris Brooker has signed a new deal to keep him at the Twickenham Stoop until June 2013.
The 24-year-old has made 56 appearances for Quins since joining from Bath in 2007, and he is delighted to have extended his stay with Conor O'Shea's side.
"I am really happy to have re-signed for Quins. This is a team that has so much potential, and a great team spirit," said Brooker.
"There are so many young, English players that are coming through the academy and challenging for our first team places that there is no doubt that there are exciting times ahead for Quins and I want to be a part of it."
O'Shea added: "We are delighted that Chris has committed to us and at 24 he is just going to get better and better.
"He fits the profile of the type of player and person we want at this club and I am sure he will be ambitious to succeed both with Harlequins and also to push on and add to his Saxons honours at a higher level."
