Harlequins have named their squad to face Leinster at the Aviva Stadium on Friday night.

Star trio Alex Dombrandt, Danny Care and Joe Marchant return to the starting XV after missing the impressive 45-33 win over Cardiff Rugby.

Care will start alongside new fly-half Tommy Allan, who came off the bench last weekend to inspire a comeback victory.

South African powerhouse Andre Esterhuizen scored in the Cardiff win and starts at 12 alongside Luke Northmore, another second half scorer last weekend.

Marchant, Louis Lynagh and Tyrone Green will complete the back three.

In the forwards, new signing Jack Walker gets his first start at hooker alongside props Santiago Garcia Botta and Simon Kerrod.

Hugh Tizard and Dino Lamb link up in a youthful second row with Tom Lawday and Jack Kenningham, scorers against Cardiff, teaming up with Dombrandt in the back row.

For the second week running, Harlequins have named an expanded bench with players getting a final chance to impress Tabai Matson ahead of next weekend's Premiership opener at Newcastle.

The friendly, which kicks off at 19:00, will be stream live on the Harlequins Facebook and YouTube channels.
