Having originally been selected amongst the replacements, Mike Brown will now start at full back for the England Saxons against Italy A at Exeter RFC tomorrow night (Friday 2nd February), kick-off 8.00pm.
Brown's promotion to the starting XV has come about as Gloucester full back Olly Morgan has been called up to the senior squad as cover for his club team-mate Iain Balshaw, who may be forced to withdraw from the England side to play Scotland at Twickenham on Saturday (3rd February) due to injury.
Brown will be alongside Quins team-mate David Strettle (right wing) in the England Saxons back division, while Nick Easter is on the bench.
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.
