Harlequins Women Head Coach Gerard Mullen reveals his matchday 23 to take on Bristol Bears Women at The Stoop

Harlequins Women Head Coach Gerard Mullen has named his matchday squad that will take on Bristol Bears Women this Saturday afternoon at The Twickenham Stoop. 

There are four changes to the starting XV, with three coming in the forward pack as Tove Viksten, Amy Cokayne and Sarah Bonar all start with the latter making her full Harlequins debut. 

The remaining change happens on the wing, as Red Roses speedster Jess Breach returns to the starting 15 for the first time this season after a period of time on the sidelines following an ankle injury May this year.

Speaking ahead of the big clash, Mullen said: “Saturday’s clash against Bristol Bears is one we’re all looking forward to eager to get stuck in to. They’re a side that are top of the table and have improved as a side from last season so we need to be accurate and and physical, but I believe we can get the job done.

“We’re blessed to have strong squad depth here at Quins and it shows in our matchday squad that we’re putting out for tomorrow’s game. We know it’s going to be a tough physical encounter, but I’m confident in our ability and feel we’re ready to put on a show.”
