A few mentions in Guardian for Quins players this weeks Talking Points:-

Guardian
...The growing injury rate is alarming but if it is indeed down to an increase in the number of collisions then it would make sense that No10s are in the firing line. The fact that an 18‑year‑old with just five Premiership starts under his belt is already on England’s radar may suggest a deeper problem, however – though it must be said Marcus Smith played with real poise against Sale on Friday.

Marler should be England’s No1

His position may not be the most glamorous but you would be hard-pressed to find a more in-form Premiership player than Joe Marler. His two-week injury absence coincided with back-to-back defeats for Harlequins but he was back at the coalface in their bonus-point win against Sale. Quins’ lengthy injury list has meant they have been lacking a bit of ball-carrying muscle and Marler provides that in spades. It may not be to everyone’s taste but he achieved precisely what he set out to in his unsavoury spat with James Haskell and must be seen as a key factor in his team’s success at Wasps. Eddie Jones has no shortage of loosehead props and it is hard to look past Mako Vunipola when he is firing on all cylinders. That has not yet been the case this season, however, and while Ellis Genge is the coming man Marler’s form means he deserves the No1 jersey this autumn.
