Harlequins name team for Friday night visit of Sale Sharks

Harlequins has named the 23-man squad to face Sale Sharks in Round 6 of the Aviva Premiership at The Stoop on Friday 6th October (kick-off 19:45).

There are four changes to the starting 15 that lost 30-22 to Northampton Saints in Round 5 of the competition. Will Collier is named at tighthead prop while captain James Horwill, Chris Robshaw and Joe Marler return to the starting side.

Speaking ahead of Friday night’s match, Director of Rugby, John Kingston said: “Sale had a hugely impressive win last week and we know they have threats across the park.

“However, at The Stoop, we are always confident and will be looking to turn in a quality performance to secure victory at the end of this initial run of Premiership matches.”
