HARLEQUINS HAS ANNOUNCED THE SQUAD TO PLAY LA ROCHELLE IN THE OPENING ROUND OF THE EUROPEAN RUGBY CHAMPIONS CUP, AT THE STOOP ON SATURDAY, KICK-OFF 17:30 (LIVE ON SKY SPORTS).


There are three changes to the starting team that played Sale Sharks last week in the Aviva Premiership.

Mike Brown returns from injury to start at full-back and is the only change within the backline.

In the forwards James Horwill has recovered from concussion to captain the side while Ben Glynn starts in a re-shuffled back row at blindside flanker.

Glynn replaces the injured Jack Clifford who misses out after injuring his shoulder last week.

Among the replacements, summer signing Francis Saili will look to make his senior debut for the Club.

Speaking ahead of the match, Director of Rugby John Kingston said: “Everyone at Harlequins has been waiting for the start of the European Rugby Champions Cup campaign from the moment we secured our place back in May.

“La Rochelle are a very impressive side and their recent record in the French domestic league speaks for itself.

“Saturday night will however, see a special atmosphere in The Stoop and all concerned can’t wait to get going.”

So, it looks like Smith is our no 1 no 10 if you see what I mean.

Mike Brown closing in on 300 appearances. Absolute legend!
