Evans and Lambert return to the starting line-up for the visit of Leicester Tigers

Nick Evans

Harlequins has announced the team to play Leicester Tigers in Round 15 of the Aviva Premiership tomorrow at The Stoop, kick-off 19:45 (live on BT Sport).

There are four changes to the side that played Bath Rugby. Nick Evans, who made his return from the replacements last week, starts at fly-half with Alofa Alofa named on the wing.

In the forwards Mark Lambert is selected at loosehead prop as George Merrick is named in the second-row. Merrick replaces Mark Reddish who suffered a concussion during last week’s match.

Stan South and Charlie Walker are among those who will provide cover from the replacements.

Speaking ahead of the match, Harlequins Director of Rugby, John Kingston, said: “We remain unbeaten at home in the Aviva Premiership, a record we are looking to continue against a very strong Leicester Tigers side.

“Our matches in recent years have been excellent encounters and I have no doubt it will be another mouth-watering clash as we look to close the gap on the five teams above us in the league.”
