U18s squad announced for Gloucester (a)

Friday, 11th January 2019 @ 12:30

Harlequins U18s meet Gloucester U18's at Hartpury College on Saturday (kick-off: 13:00) in their fourth fixture of this season's Academy League season.

Both teams come into the game unbeaten in the Southern Conference. Last weekend Gloucester edged past a very strong Bath team and the Quins boys had a good away victory at Saracens.

The Quins' squad for this Saturday’s clash sees five changes to the starting line-up from the Saracens fixture.

In the backline, last week's Game Changers Jake Williams and Alex Clayton rotate with Jonny Haynes and Mikel Davies while up front Patrick Green misses out through injury and is replaced by Jon Salomon.

Second Row Elliott Powell moves into the starting XV and Toby Scalabrini returns to the back row. To complete the line-up Ted Johnson and Dylan Thomas come back into the 23.

The full squad for Saturday and list of upcoming fixtures are below:
