Harlequins were honoured last night for their efforts off the field in the last 12 months by winning the "Play Award" at the 2013 All Parliamentary Premiership Rugby Community Awards in London.
His contribution to Quins' season was recognised when Stuart Lancaster named him in his England Saxons squad for this summer's Churchill Cup campaign, and many believe him to be a contender for the future England number 2 shirt.
Director of Rugby, Conor O'Shea, says:
"Joe has made an incredible impact at Harlequins and in the Aviva Premiership, and finishing up in the Saxons group last season was just reward for his work. The person, as much as the player, is an important part of what we believe in, and in Joe we have someone who embodies our values to the full. We believe Joe has the ability to get better and better and we are looking forward to him achieving his goals with us over the coming years"
Joe Gray, says:
"I am really pleased to have re-signed with Quins. Since joining Harlequins two years ago, not only has my rugby improved but also my enjoyment for the game. The team plays a great style of rugby and I am excited about the future."
