🏉 A huge match in the Harlequins season as they welcome Premiership play-off rivals Northampton Saints to The Stoop. Kick-off is at 7.45pm.
It’s been a roller coaster time of late for Harlequins. No sooner had they booked their place in a first cup final since 2016 – a 49-22 win over Exeter Chiefs seeing them through to the Premiership Cup final where they will face Sale – than former England captain and club legend Chris Robshaw announced will be hanging up his shirt after 16 years with Harlequins at the end of the season.
Two Premiership reverses – against London Irish and Bath – saw Harlequins slip down to ninth in the table last month before they rallied with a dramatic 34-30 win over league leaders Exeter Chiefs. Currently seventh in the table on 28 points a top-four finish (and with it a place in the end of season play-offs) is not out of the question for Harlequins, however a win today over Northampton Saints – who currently occupy 4th spot on 35 points – is a must.
Previous meeting in the league: 1 November 2019. Then league leaders Northampton Saints inflicting a 40-22 defeat on Harlequins at Franklin’s Gardens.
Ones to watch: England international and Harlequins legend Chris Robshaw will be determined to drive his side towards a play-off place after the recent announcement he will be leaving the club at the end of the season. Meanwhile fellow back row Alex Dombrandt will be aiming to repeat his performance the last time Harlequins and Exeter Chiefs met – Dombrant scoring two tries as Quins prevailed in the Premiership Cup semi-final.
