Team vs Wasps
Posted by: WellingQuin

HARLEQUINS HAS NAMED THE MATCHDAY 23 TO PLAY WASPS RUGBY IN ROUND 14 OF THE AVIVA PREMIERSHIP AT THE STOOP (SUNDAY 11TH FEBRUARY, KICK-OFF 13:00).

There are nine changes to the starting 15 that lost to Northampton Saints last weekend.

Following his recent contract renewal, Tim Visser is named to start on the left wing, Jamie Roberts partners Joe Marchant in the centres and Marcus Smith comes in at fly-half.

There is a completely different front five - featuring a return from injury for Kyle Sinckler - while Mat Luamanu is named at Number Eight. Dave Ward takes over captaincy duties as James Horwill picked up a knock in last week's match against Northampton.

Ahead of the match, Harlequins Director of Rugby, John Kingston said: "Last month's match against Wasps was an absolute belter. For us to come back in the way that we did showed fantastic belief and desire, but we know they're a good side and they'll pose a huge threat on the weekend again.

"The next three home games against Wasps, Newcastle and Bath are going to have a significant impact on whether we will be able to sustain a genuine challenge for the top four. The crowd was massive in getting the team over the line a few weeks ago, so we need them right behind the side from the very first minute."
