Harlequins team to play Worcester Warriors

dcare-quins-2810

Harlequins has announced the squad to play Worcester Warriors at The Stoop on Saturday in Round 7 of the Aviva Premiership, kick-off 15:00.

There are five changes to the starting team that played Edinburgh last weekend. Club captain Danny Care returns to the starting line-up and is joined in the back line with Tim Visser, who has recovered from a minor injury, and inside centre Winston Stanley.

Jamie Roberts has been rested this week, while Harry Sloan has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.

In the forwards, Will Collier is named at tighthead, as Kyle Sinckler picked up a knock to his arm last week. Charlie Matthews starts in the second row and replaces Sam Twomey who sustained a foot injury against Edinburgh. The second-row is undergoing surgery next week.

Among the replacements, Mark Lambert will look to make his 200th appearance for the Club.

Speaking ahead of the fixture John Kingston, Harlequins Director of Rugby, said: “We are looking forward to returning to the Aviva Premiership and we are hoping to sustain our excellent home record. Worcester have shown already this season that they are a quality outfit and we will need to be at our best to keep that run going.

“I have decided to rest Jamie Roberts as he is now straight into international rugby next weekend, while the England players will not be starting their Autumn matches until the week after.

“Both Harry Sloan and Sam Twomey have unfortunately sustained lengthy injuries which require surgery. I have no doubt they will be doing everything they can to return to fitness as quickly as possible.”
