The following week Harlequins host Worcester Warriors with Scott Baldwin, who played a central part in the title-winning campaign, returning to The Stoop for the first time since heading to Sixways.

The Friday Night Lights will be switched on 8 October with the visit of Bristol Bears, who Harlequins beat in an unforgettable Premiership Semi-Final last month.

The big games keep coming at The Stoop with the much anticipated clash with Saracens on Sunday 31 October.

“It’s great to have sight of how our first season as defending champions will kick-off," said Harlequins Director of Rugby Performance Billy Millard.

"Newcastle away is a tough match and we’re looking forward to testing ourselves early with a trip north.

“Our first game back at The Stoop will be something special. The majority of our fans weren’t able to celebrate our trophy win last season, and we’re excited to welcome many more of them on September 25 as we host Worcester.

“We have welcomed some new faces and a new senior coach during the off-season and we’ll be looking to hit the ground running with Tabai Matson joining us.

“These are exciting times to be part of the Club. We feel we have a group that has so much more potential growth despite having already reached title status. I’m looking forward to kicking off the next part of our journey.
