A Gallagher Premiership Rugby ball

In the backline, fly-half Paul Burke returns from injury to replace Andy Dunne in the starting XV, with the latter dropping back down to the bench.

Up front, Mike Worsley returns at loosehead prop, having been a late withdrawal for the game against Leeds last week due to a virus, with Ceri Jones starting on the bench. In the final change to the front row, Tani Fuga returns from injury to start at hooker, with James Hayter moving to the bench.

"There have been some difficult selection issues this week," said NEC Harlequins Chief Executive Mark Evans.

"Both Ceri [Jones] and Andy [Dunne] played very well last week and are unlucky not to get another opportunity against Northampton. Jim Hayter was very brave for us last week, but he was not fully fit, so we are pleased to see Tani fit and ready to return to the action."

Harlequins: 15 Josh Taumalolo, 14 Simon Keogh, 13 Chris Bell, 12 Mel Deane, 11 Ugo Monye, 10 Paul Burke, 9 Ben Willis, 8 Tony Diprose, 7 André Vos, 6 Pat Sanderson, 5 Jim Evans, 4 Bill Davison, 3 Jon Dawson, 2 Tani Fuga, 1 Mike Worsley.Replacements: 16 James Hayter, 17 Ceri Jones, 18 Laurent Gomez, 19 Karl Rudzki, 20 Roy Winters, 21 Andy Dunne, 22 Gavin Duffy.
