Harlequins name team to play Saracens at Wembley

Harlequins has announced the team to play Saracens on Saturday at Wembley in Round 20 of the Aviva Premiership.

There are four changes to the starting team that beat London Irish in the European Rugby Challenge Cup quarter-final last week.

Joe Marchant returns to the starting line-up amongst an otherwise unchanged back line.

Among the forwards Will Collier starts in the front row, with Charlie Matthews named in the second row alongside Sam Twomey. Nick Easter returns to the back row and partners Chris Robshaw and Jack Clifford.

Among the replacements, Mat Luamanu provides cover for the back row, with Matt Hopper returning to the bench.

Luke Wallace (concussion), George Lowe (hip), James Horwill (leg), Nick Evans (leg), Joe Marler (suspension) and Winston Stanley (leg) amongst others, will all be available for selection for next weekend’s European Rugby Challenge Cup semi-final against Grenoble.
