Attention for many may be on the RBS Six Nations, but after a week away from Rugby, the Quins boys are back and all thoughts are on this Saturday's game against London Irish.
Currently sitting just one point off Guinness Premiership leaders Gloucester, London Irish have won just one of their last four matches in the Guinness Premiership: 48-8 at home to Newcastle on 3rd January. Their impressive home form shows that since March, The Exiles have only been defeated once at the Madejski Stadium (in any competition) this season, and this was by Bath, 16-20, back in September.
London Irish are indeed a tough side to beat and here are Head Coach, John Kingston's, three players to watch on Saturday:
Back from England duty, where he was in Martin Johnson's starting line-up for the opening game of the RBS Six Nations, Steffon is currently in impressive form and playing well.
He is very good at disrupting opposition ball at the breakdown, he contests the tackle area very hard and we need to deal with that threat.
Stephan plays the referee to the limit, in regards to what he gets away with at the breakdown, and while we hope the officials look at this, we need to be aware of it and deal with it effectively.
He is proven time after time this season that he can carry the ball for London Irish effectively over the game line and he will be a huge threat with the ball in hand.
My remaining two players are two key figures, one from the backs and one from the forwards.
A familiar face to Quins fans, Chris has been making a big impact, since joining Irish from Quins at the beginning of the season. He has the ability to get over the game line from the base of the scrum and in general phase play. He is a powerful runner with ball in hand and an excellent off loader of the ball.
We must ensure on Saturday that we do not give him the opportunity to carry the ball effectively in the game.
Powerful in midfield, Mapasua can be extremely dangerous. He offloads well out of contact, putting people nicely into space and is extremely good at getting the ball over the game line. Like Hala'ufia, he is a real threat with the ball in hand.
