Wood pledges 'Quins return
Ireland hooker Keith Wood has confirmed that he will return to Harlequins next season, irrespective of the success of Munster in this year's European Cup
Wood, speaking to a Cork newspaper said "I have given Harlequins my word that I will be back and I intend keeping my word."
But, the Irish hooker may find himself under pressure from Munster, whom he helped to victory over Saracens at Thomond Park over the weekend.
Munster skipper Mick Galwey described Wood as an inspiration this season. "He is a major influence and we will, or should be, trying everything in our power to make him stay, though realising that he has contractual obligations with Harlequins."
However Wood is adamant that he will return to England "I don't intend breaking my word to Harlequins and I intend lining out with them come September, when they play their first game of the season. That has always been the plan."
