Following a pre-season camp at adidas’ headquarters in Germany, Summer signing Phil Swainston starts in the front row alongside Mark Lambert and Captain Dave Ward with Charlie Matthews and George Merrick in the second row.

Academy member Archie White is named at blindside flanker with Luke Wallace and Jack Clifford completing the back row.

Charlie Mulchrone and Tim Swiel are named at half-backs with James Lang, fresh from Singha 7s action, and Alofa Alofa starting in the centres.

Tim Visser and Charlie Walker - who contributed 19 tries last season - take residency on either wing with Ross Chisholm completing the 15 at fullback.

Club captain James Horwill is named among the replacements alongside new signings Lewis Boyce, Josh McNulty and Ben Glynn.

Bill Harding - who played for Harlequins against the Maori All Blacks last November - starts as replacement hooker as a guest.

Confirming the squad for the pre-season encounter, Director of Rugby, John Kingston said: "Pre-season matches are all about getting match time under the belt and Saturday is that first opportunity to test out new combinations.

“The squad involved generally reflects players who have been back in training longer and features a number of our summer signings who I am excited to see play, alongside members of our Academy.

“It comes at the end of an intense week in Germany, where the squad have been working very hard with several double sessions per day. Playing a match on the back of such a programme is a challenge we are looking forward to with the start of the 2017/18 season in mind.”

Wish I was going. Very excited for new season

Are Hennessey and Murley academy?

Why do we have a guest as replacement hooker? Hope that Gray, Buchanan, Piper and Elia Elia aren't all injured

Great to see Sloan on the bench.

In the backs I wonder how many minutes those players will get this season (other than Visser)?

Hennesy is academy centre - captain of the u18's i think last year. Highly regarded and looks quite a lot older than he is - played for the 7's last week.

Murley - i don't know anything about buy academy and played in the 7's -

Almost seems strange to see Ward at hooker...
