If there are any other ex-Quins still playing rugby out there send the details to us, or if there are errors in this list tell us and I'll update this page - email@example.com .
Former academy flanker Phil Burgess is playing in National 2 North for Loughborough Students. I'm not totally sure but I have a feeling he's even turned out for Gloucester A when they've been short of players.
Phil Burgess is indeed playing at Loughborough students (and
has played Glaws A) and is currently holding the 1st xv number 8 shirt,just ahead of someone else I believe is a former quins academy player - mike macfarlane
I'm pretty sure George retired.
Do you think Billy Fulton would like to come and build that cellar I designed for him and Ben Willis?
Bayonne play Wasps on Sat 12th Dec so I'm hoping to catch up with Ace. Surely he can't run that quickly any more?
Don't mean to be nit-picky but isn't Tony Diprose's title a bit more than Academy Assistant Coach? Programme has him as first XV Backs coach and Academy Manager. He is a great bloke. We mustn't under-sell him.
Deadly, the only player by that name to have played for the 1st XV was EC Bloxam who made one appearance on 27/12/1920 against the Royal Air Force at Queen's Club. He was on the right wing, didn't score but we won 24-6.

Brilliant! Thats in the right time frame too. Thank you for your assistance.
There is a whole raft of great Players missed out:
The 3 Thresher brothers ~ Stuart, David and Peter
Micky Skinner ~ how could you forget him ?
Mike Mollineau ~ he was at Stoop last week
Mark Russell ~ he was at Stoop last week
John Olver ~ not the same person as Adrian Olver
Just had lunch with Tani Fuga at his new Gaff (Nando's) in Ponsonby Road, Auckland, accompanied by the mighty Philip Miles! TF mentioned that Ace and Steven So'oialo are down in Wellington (Coolest Capital in the world) New Zealand.
Former Wales international Hal Luscombe could make his debut off the bench for Chippenham at the Allington Fields as the Wiltshire side host struggling Newbury Blues.
Chippenham, who slumped to 43-nil defeat away to unbeaten league leaders Bournemouth last weekend, also give a debut to another South African-born player with Graham Ridler starting at scrum-half.
Sam Saunders switches to full back with Rupert Crockett returning in the centre.
Chippenham (home v Newbury Blues, 3pm): S Saunders; C Fletcher, F Clilverd, R Crockett, M Beswick; L Surry, G Ridler; J Meadows, A Clark, P Kirby, R Lyons (capt), A Price, J Turner, N Doyle, J Doubleday. Reps: J Down, J Boddington, H Luscombe.
Luke Sherriff playing his final game before retiring this wednesday captaining Major Stanleys XV v Oxford University.
Since he signed for Nottingham from Quins he's been one of the best and most consistant players in the championship. Not resigned by Notts this season and we've struggled at flanker, but signing ex Newcastle Brent Wilson hopefully will fill the void left behind after Lukes departure.
Just spotted Codders back full time inT rugby as head coach with Rotherham Titans. Read somewhere than Dan Frazier (another excellent dancer) is training in all things coffee following injury.
Anyone know where Mike Worsley is now?
It's his birthday today.
Luke Sheriff at Stoop yesterday.
There's a big queue of ladies down here if they do Babs.
Popped over to make sure you guys had heard this news, we had our club dinner last night and Roy mad a very emotional speech.
Can't believe it was over 6 years ago I parked on your drive next to the picture of Roy you had put up for me.
He will be sadly missed from our squad next year.
Article in the business section of The Times this morning on Alex Snow.
Entitled 'Big Shot' it says that he is now the Chief Exec of Lansdowne Partners.
It says that in 2000 he formed Evolution, a stockbroker that merged with Beeson Gregory in 2002 and later acquired an asset manager before Investec bought it all for £220m in 2011. Alex made £5.6m from the acquisition.
In September 2012 he became Chief Exec of Lansdowne which is a hedge fund that made £100m profit when it shorted Northern Rock.
Lansdowne employs 87 people and has £8.8bn of assets under management.
He is 44, studied at Harrow and went to St Andrews University.
