Harlequins shuffle the pack for European final

Harlequins shuffle the pack for European final

Harlequins has announced the squad to play Montpellier in the Final of the European Rugby Challenge Cup on Friday at the Grand Stade de Lyon, kick-off 21:00 CET (20:00 GMT+1), live on BT Sport and Sky Sports.

There are eight changes to the starting team that played Exeter Chiefs last week. George Lowe and Tim Visser have recovered from knocks and return to the backline.

In a changed front five Joe Marler, Joe Gray, Adam Jones, James Horwill and Sam Twomey start, with Luke Wallace returning to the openside flank.

Among the replacements, Dave Ward, Mark Lambert, Karl Dickson and Ross Chisholm are named.

Following the tragic news of loosehead prop Seb Adeniran-Olule this week, there will be a minute’s silence before tomorrow evening’s match. The Harlequins squad will also wear black arm bands in his memory.
