Quins name side to host Newcastle Falcons

Friday, 11th June 2021 @ 12:00

Harlequins’ coaching group have named the team to face Newcastle Falcons in the final match at The Stoop this season

Five players retain their spots in the starting side that travelled to Sale Sharks last time, with eight Harlequins Academy products named in the starting side for the final home game of the season, with a total of 12 pathway players named in the 23.

Club Captain Stephan Lewies misses out on selection this week due to injury, with Dino Lamb stepping to start in the five jersey, with Academy player Hugh Tizard taking up a role on the bench.

Amongst the Impact Players, back row James Chisholm and wing Cadan Murley return from spells on the side lines for inclusion in the match day 23.

Squad v Newcastle
Speaking, General Manager Billy Millard said: “It’s been a great week preparing to finish on a high at The Stoop this season. The players are excited to be able to play in front of home fans again this week.

“This weekend also offers us the opportunity to say goodbye to some departing players one last time on home soil. We’ll say goodbye to some people that are good friends and great players, and we’re looking forward to sending them off in style with a win.

“Newcastle are a tough side with real determination. We have a form sheet to balance this week after falling short of the Newcastle challenge at Kingston Park earlier this season. But we’ve had a good week of prep and we’re ready to take the game to Newcastle this weekend.”
