On the bench, Moore’s place is taken by Chris Bell, who has recovered from a hamstring injury, while Bruce Starr replaces Pablo Cardinali.

"We are expecting a very tough game in the North East," said NEC Harlequins Chief Executive Mark Evans.

"We have watched all of Newcastle's recent games and they were extremely unlucky to lose to Saracens a couple of weeks ago at Vicarage Road. Newcastle played very well that evening and with a world class performer like Jonny Wilkinson back in the team, they will want to put on a good performance in front of their home crowd."

"The Zurich Premiership remains very tight and a win for either team on Saturday will make a significant difference as to how they look at the rest of the season. We are looking to break into the top half of the table and to do that we have got to start picking up points away from home."

NEC Harlequins: 15 Nathan Williams, 14 Matt Moore, 13 Will Greenwood, 12 Viliame Satala, 11 Dan Luger, 10 Paul Burke, 9 Scott Bemand, 8 Tony Diprose, 7 André Vos (captain), 6 Ace Tiatia, 5 Alex Codling, 4 Bill Davison, 3 Jon Dawson, 2 Tani Fuga, 1 Jason Leonard.Replacements: 16 Bruce Starr, 17 Jim Evans, 18 Simon Miall, 19 Luke Sherriff, 20 Matthew Powell, 21 Rob Jewell, 22 Chris Bell.

Kick-off: 15.00 GMT
