White and Stanley to make Harlequins debuts against Calvisano

Harlequins has announced the squad to play Calvisano at the Peroni Stadium in Round 3 of the European Rugby Challenge Cup, kick-off 14:30 GMT+1 (13:30 GMT).

Summer signing Winston Stanley and first year Academy member Archie White will make their senior debuts for the Club, starting at inside centre and blindside flanker respectively.

Stanley and White are two of 12 changes to the starting team that beat London Irish last week.

Seven of the starting forward pack are either graduates or a current member of the Harlequins Academy.

Mark Lambert, Rob Buchanan and Will Collier start in a changed front row, with Charlie Matthews named in the second-row.

Former Epsom College and Harlequins U18 captain White is joined in the back row by Luke Wallace and captain Jack Clifford, who re-signed with the Club this week.

Stanley, is named in the backs alongside Tim Swiel and Ross Chisholm, who make their first starts of the season.

Among the replacements, Owen Evans will look to make his senior debut for the Club with Tito Tebaldi eyeing his first senior appearance of the season.

Sam Twomey and Ollie Lindsay-Hague underwent surgery this week for injuries sustained during the London Irish match and are expected to return in March 2016. No.8 Mat Luamanu is expected to return to fitness in four weeks.
