Harlequins team to play Newcastle Falcons

Harlequins has announced the squad to play Newcastle Falcons in Round 10 of the Aviva Premiership, at The Stoop on Saturday, kick-off 15:00.

Following back to back encounters with Leinster Rugby, there are six changes to the side.

Mark Lambert, Joe Gray and Kyle Sinckler start in the front row, while George Robson captains the side from an unchanged second row.

In the back-row Joe Trayfoot and James Chisholm, who makes his first Premiership start, are named alongside Jack Clifford.

Luke Wallace broke his hand last weekend and, after successfully undergoing surgery this week, is expected to return in six to eight weeks.

In the backs, Tim Swiel also makes his first Premiership start as Nick Evans continues his return from injury.
