With nine out of ten front row forwards suffering from either illness or injury, NEC Harlequins have been forced to withdraw from tomorrow nights (Friday 27th August) pre-season friendly fixture with Zurich Premiership rivals Saracens, scheduled to take place at Vicarage Road, kick-off 7.45pm.
The club are unable to field a front row that can scrummage and do not have anyone available who can throw into the lineout.
Quins would like to apologize for the late cancellation of this pre-season fixture and for any inconveniences this causes to supporters of both clubs.
All supporters who have purchased tickets for the game will be contacted by Saracens over the next 24 hours and receive a full refund.
During week commencing 22nd April Harlequins will launch an innovative, new Membership Scheme which will replace the existing Season Ticket Holder Programme. Further details of the scheme will be announced in due course.
