Friday, 16th June 2017 @ 17:00



With the summer international matches well under way, take a look at Harlequins' involvement over the coming weekend.

Following the narrow defeat to the Highlanders on Tuesday, the British and Irish Lions will face the Maori All Blacks at Rotorua International Stadium on Saturday (kick-off 08:35 BST) in what many are calling the unofficial fourth Test match on the tour.

Kyle Sinckler is named among the replacements while both he and Joe Marler will be pushing to make the Test 23 when the Lions face the All Blacks next Saturday.

In Santa Fe, Argentina, five Harlequins will represent England in the second match of the two-Test tour. Chris Robshaw has recovered from an ankle injury and will start alongside Mike Brown, Danny Care and Marland Yarde in England's starting 15. After debuting last weekend, Will Collier will be looking to earn his second England cap from the bench.

On Friday morning, Jamie Roberts captained Wales to a 6-24 victory over Tonga at Eden Park ahead of their match against Samoa next Saturday, where he could go up against Harlequins teammate Elia Elia.

After their convincing win over Italy last weekend in Singapore, Scotland have selected one Harlequin in their matchday 23, with Ruaridh Jackson named among the Scots' replacements as they face Australia on Saturday (kick-off 06:00 BST).

As well as the England senior squad, Harlequins will have players representing England U20s as they face New Zealand U20s in the World Rugby U20 Championship Final. After scoring five tries in the tournament, Gabriel Ibitoye is set to feature for England alongside fellow Harlequins Academy member Dino Lamb. 

Two of the Harlequins Women's players for next season - who have both been part of the relationship the Club has with Aylesford Bulls Ladies - Rachael Burford and Vickii Cornborough have been named in the Red Roses matchday 23 to face the Black Ferns on Saturday (kick-off 05:15 BST) following wins against Australia Women and Canada Women.
