Harlequins name matchday 23 to travel to Welford Road

John Kingston has named his squad to face Leicester Tigers in Round 15 of the Aviva Premiership on Saturday 17th February (kick-off, 15:00)

There are several changes to the side that faced Wasps at home last week.

Aaron Morris comes in at fullback for Ross Chisholm, who has been ruled out with concussion. Jonno Kitto starts at scrum-half, as Dave Lewis reverts to the bench.

In the pack, Stan South moves to the starting line up ahead of the injured Ben Glynn, as Sam Twomey is set to make is Premiership return from the bench. Joe Gray starts at Hooker, whilst captain David Ward shows his flexibility by moving to back row to cover for the injured Mat Luamanu.

Gabriel Ibitoye comes back into to the fray as a replacement, following his return from the England training camp, along with James Lang.

Ahead of the match, Director of Rugby John Kingston said: “Welford Road is always a challenging arena and Saturday will be no different.

We are well aware there is ground to make up in the race for Play Offs and European Qualification – an away victory at Leicester would be a massive boost in that quest”.
