Symons surely not just rotated?

No, his pinky was.

Not surprised there are a few changes.  Just seemed a bit "stale" and in need of freshening up.  Thats still a pretty good side

Why rest Sink for this one?

We almost certainly have to after playing him off the back of the 6 nations and with what I assume Gustard sees as tougher scrum opponents in the Prem as he tries for play offs.

Is Josh Adams still at Wuss? If he is glad he's not playing as he's been on fire recently.

Just want to say congratulations to Will Collier and Ross Chisholm on reaching their 150 and 100 appearance milestones respectively. They have both been wonderful servants of Harlequins Rugby Club for many years. They have had their share of injuries but they keep coming back for more. Well done lads and I hope the team can bring home the win for you tomorrow night.

My best memory of Ross so far must be the time we scored that fab try away at Glos (2 seasons ago?) which started deep in our own half and ended up with Ross gassing the entire Glos back three. Magic! I can't remember one for Will (being a prop!) but i will take his memory of shoving the Wasps scrum over the line for a try....

The video with Will and Lambo on the club website is amusing stuff.

I'm a bit disappointed that Gussy has chosen to rest some key players for this fixture especially as I'm going to the game. Whilst Top 6 in the Prem seems to be a priority and Top 4 a target now, I think the selection betrays a lack of ambition to progress in this competition and underestimates the incentive for the fans. Saracens and Exeter are clear favourites for the Prem final so I'm not sure a SF fixture will do us much good, and whilst I'd be the first to prefer some high profile Champions Cup fixtures next year, we have struggled to progress beyond the Group Stages. Our only realistic chance of silverware this year could be the Challenge Cup and a trip to Clermont for an upset would be most appealing ! Hopefully the squad will step up tomorrow and I'll be proved wrong.

Sinck has to be rested, Marler has a knock, Robson injured, same for Marchant, Earle Needs. Break, think weíve gone with pretty much best available

I donít agree with the conclusion above but he has said heís rested Earle, Dombrandt, Symonds and Sink (agreed on Sink that he probably has to).

However - Murley was one of our best players before injury, front row is still strong, and Bothma, Robshaw, Clifford isnít shabby either.

Alofa has earned his place on recent outing.

So barring the change of Symons for Merrick I donít agree that itís a significantly weaker side. (and he got his finger put back in last week....)
