Chris Robshaw, the former England captain, will make his first appearance since October in Harlequins’ Premiership Cup clash with London rivals Saracens at a sold out Stoop on Saturday.
Former Australia captain James Horwill also returns to the starting lineup in a Harlequins team that sees 13 changes from Quins’ last game against Agen in the Challenge Cup.
Saracens have named an entirely different starting XV from the one that beat Glasgow in the Challenge Cup last Saturday as both teams are depleted by international call-ups.
Alex Lozowski starts at inside centre having made a substitute appearance against the Warriors. Nick Isiekwe forms an all new back row with Sean Reffell and Sione Vailanu.
