<1R>This weekend will see Harlequins playing London Irish for the 2nd time this season and one player who is looking forward to the rematch at the Madejski Stadium, is London Irish Centre, Nils Mordt.
'We are looking forward to the game this weekend and I think everyone will be going into it with a different mentality from the last few Premiership games. It is hyped up as another competition, with some people seeming think it is not as important as the other competitions we will be playing in this season and therefore, do not take it seriously. However, I think it makes a nice change for us to go into a game and be able to play without being put under so much pressure.'
'This will be the second time Harlequins have met Irish this season and this time Irish will be looking to reverse the scoreline.'
'I think the rivalry between the clubs is always a good thing and there is plenty between us and Quins. We lost against Quins in our opening match, so we have more of an incentive to win and this time we will want our revenge.'
'The London Double Header was a very close game, with Quins putting in a great performance and I am sure the match on Sunday will be the same. We will have to be concentrating and playing well ourselves to come out with a win.'
Born in Zimbabwe, but brought up in England, Nils will be facing a few familiar faces he has played alongside at International Level:
'I played a few times with Ugo (Monye) and James Percival, at England Under 21s level, and when I was a part of the England Sevens team I played alongside Danny Care and Charlie Amesbury, so I know a few of the boys quite well and we always look forward to playing each other. Being quite close geographically also means we overlap a little and get to know each other well.'
The Exiles have had a difficult start to the season, winning two out of six matches. Mordt said: 'It has been a difficult start to the season for us and we have had some narrow defeats. The matches in the Premiership are always close and final scores can rest on a referee's decision or the bounce of a ball. We had a good win against Gloucester, so now we are looking to get back on track and build up some momentum to go into the Heineken Cup matches, along with the remaining Guinness Premiership matches, which are must win for us.'
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.
