Quins look to make it five wins in a row in the Allianz Premier 15s at Sandy Park

Harlequins Women Head Coach Gerard Mullen has named his matchday squad that will travel down to Devon to take on Exeter Chiefs this Sunday at Sandy Park live on BBC Sport.


There is just one forced change to the Starting XV as Chloe Edwards replaces Shaunagh Brown at tighthead prop. The backline remains unchanged following a dominant display at Big Game 13 as Quins defeated Wasps Women 20-5 at Twickenham Stadium.


The side from South West London will be looking to make it five wins in a row in the Allianz Premier 15s with a win against Chiefs moving Quins up into the top three with a game in hand against Worcester Warriors still to come.


Ahead of the clash, Head Coach Gerard Mullen said: “We have a big test in front of us at Sandy Park on Sunday afternoon. Exeter Chiefs are side we’ve lost to twice in our last two fixtures against them, so we know how strong they are as a side.”


“They’ve recruited a lot of international players to make them highly competitive. Chiefs are a really well organised side and are tough to break down so for us we’ll need to make sure our set pieces are strong and we match their physicality throught the whole 80 minutes.”
