Harlequins team to play Gloucester Rugby

Harlequins has named the side to face Gloucester Rugby in Round 4 of the LV= Cup tomorrow at Kingsholm.

Fourteen of the starting 15 are English-qualified, while 16 of the match day squad have come through the Harlequins Academy.

There are seven changes to last weekend's starting XV. In the backs Ollie Lindsay-Hague, Jordan Turner-Hall, Ugo Monye and Ben Botica all start, with Turner-Hall making his first appearance since November.

In the forwards Luke Wallace returns to captain the side after recovering from a broken hand, while Matt Shields, who is on loan from Darlington Mowden Park, makes his senior starting debut. Netani Talei, a Fijian international with a wealth of experience, has signed a short-term contract with the club and is named at number 8.

The replacements include Harlequins Academy players Charlie Piper, Stan South, Henry Cheeseman and Jordan Burns. Mark Lambert, Joe Gray, Tim Swiel and Aseli Tikoirotuma are also named on the bench.
