Harlequins announce squad to play Gloucester Rugby

Harlequins has announced its squad to play Gloucester Rugby at The Stoop on Sunday in Round 16 of the Gallagher Premiership.

There are three changes to the starting XV that beat Bath at The Rec last week as Jack Clifford returns at Blindside flanker, Dave Lewis starts at Scrum-half and the impressive Ben Tapuai is rotated to accomodate last week’s Game Changer Francis Saili.

Head of Rugby Paul Gustard said: “We have generated some decent momentum this calendar year, winning our past five Gallagher Premiership matches. Now we want to build on this and be the best version of ourselves this Sunday against Gloucester.

“It was important we kept our winning streak last week against Bath and it was pleasing to see us scoring tries through phase attack, through our defence and through our set-piece. Now we are relishing our return to The Stoop to take on a high-flying Gloucester side. We look forward to the challenge they bring.”
