Aviva Premiership match preview: Nick Evans returns for Harlequins
Harlequins will have the services of ace fly-half Nick Evans available to them when they host Exeter in an Aviva Premiership clash on Saturday.
Evans has been sidelined by an ankle injury but returns to action at the expense of Ben Botica who drops to the bench.
Conor O'Shea has made two further changes to the team that beat Sale last weekend. Skipper Nick Easter moves from number eight into the second row in place of Charlie Matthews with Tom Guest taking over at the back of the scrum.
Exeter enter the encounter with the defending champions on a high after thrashing London Welsh 47-16 last time out.
The victory came at a price though, with prop Hoani Tui, lock Dean Mumm and centre Jason Shoemark all ruled out through injury.
The trio are replaced by Alex Brown, Damian Welch and Phil Dollman respectively.
Harlequins: 15 Ollie Lindsay-Hague, 14 Tom Williams, 13 Matt Hopper, 12 Jordan Turner-Hall, 11 Ugo Monye, 10 Nick Evans, 9 Karl Dickson, 8 Tom Guest, 7 Luke Wallace, 6 Maurie Fa'asavalu, 5 George Robson, 4 Nick Easter (C), 3 James Johnston, 2 Joe Gray, 1 Mark Lambert.
Replacements: 16 Rob Buchanan, 17 Darryl Marfo, 18 Will Collier, 19 Charlie Matthews, 20 Joe Trayfoot, 21 Jordan Burns, 22 Ben Botica, 23 George

What they said...
Exeter head coach Rob Baxter
"Last week was a very good performance from us, but now we've got to make sure London Welsh was not a one-off performance and that we show the same enthusiasm and attacking intent for the rest of the season."
