Harlequins team to play Northampton Saints

Harlequins has announced the side to play Northampton Saints tomorrow at Franklin’s Gardens in Round 16 of the Aviva Premiership, kick-off 19:45 (Live on BT Sport).

There are three changes to the side that played Exeter Chiefs last week. In the backs Karl Dickson starts in place of Danny Care, who misses out through a calf strain. Care is expected to return for the London Irish match next week.

Harry Sloan, who replaces the concussed Tom Casson, starts at inside centre.

With Nick Easter returning to the England setup, Netani Talei, who signed with the club until the end of the current season, starts at number 8.

Among the replacements, scrum-half Tito Tebaldi will look to make his first senior appearance for the club.
