Harlequins team to play Cardiff Blues

Harlequins has announced the squad to play Cardiff Blues at The Stoop on Sunday in Round 5 of the European Challenge Cup, kick-off 15:15 (live on Sky Sports 5).

There are three changes to the starting squad that beat Saracens last week.

In front of an unchanged backline, Will Collier returns to the starting line-up, with George Merrick selected in the second-row.

Jack Clifford, who was named in the England squad with Joe Marler, Chris Robshaw, Danny Care, Marland Yarde and Mike Brown this week, starts at openside as Nick Easter returns to Number 8.

Among the replacements, Mat Luamanu will look to make his first European appearance for the Club having recovered from an injury sustained in October.
