Five changes for Quins team to face Tigers

sam egertonHarlequins has announced the team to play Leicester Tigers at The Stoop in Round 13 of the Aviva Premiership on Friday, kick-off 19:45 (live on BT Sport).

There are five personnel changes to the starting team which played Gloucester Rugby last week.

Dave Ward moves from the openside flank and starts in the front row alongside Adam Jones and Mark Lambert.

James Horwill captains the side in the second row with Nick Easter returning at number 8.

In the backs, Winston Stanley is named at outside centre, with Ben Botica starting at fly-half. Botica replaces Nick Evans who underwent surgery on a broken leg this week; the fly-half is expected to be out for 12 weeks with a return in early May.

Among the replacements Sam Egerton (pictured), who joined Harlequins from England Sevens as injury cover for Karl Dickson, will look to make his debut for the Club.
