Quins v Gloucester: Teams
At Twickenham Stoop, Saturday September 17, kick-off 3pm
Harlequins have made two enforced changes to their starting XV for the Gloucester's visit to the Stoop on Saturday.
Sam Smith will play on the wing in place of Ross Chisholm, who will be sidelined for a number of weeks with an ankle injury.
Joe Marler is unavailable after being given a three-week ban for striking, meaning Mark Lambert is brought into the line-up at prop. The rest of the pack remains unchanged from last Friday's win over Northampton.
Quins will be looking to continue a run of form that has seen them win five of their last six matches in all competitions, with their only defeat in that period being a 13-16 defeat to Saracens in May.
Gloucester hand a first start to Australian hooker Nathan Charles as coach Bryan Redpath makes several changes to the line-up that comfortably defeated Worcester.
Charles will start in the front row alongside Nick Wood and Rupert Harden, who comes into the team for Dario Chistolini at tighthead.
With Will James banned for one match, Tom Savage keeps his place at lock, with Alex Brown joining him in the second row having missed out at home to the Warriors last weekend.
Brett Deacon will make his first start of the season at No. 8 and Matt Cox moves to openside flanker as Andy Hazell is absent due to a thumb injury.
There are also changes in the backs, with Henry Trinder starting at outside centre in place of Jonny May, who is dropped to the bench, while Freddie Burns is preferred to Tim Taylor at fly-half.
Harlequins: 15 Mike Brown, 14 Sam Smith, 13 George Lowe, 12 Jordan Turner-Hall, 11 Ugo Monye, 10 Nick Evans, 9 Karl Dickson, 8 Chris York, 7 Luke Wallace, 6 Chris Robshaw (c), 5 George Robson, 4 Ollie Kohn, 3 Tim Fairbrother, 2 Joe Gray, 1 Mark Lambert.
Replacements: 16 Chris Brooker, 17 Darryl Marfo, 18 James Johnston, 19 Charlie Matthews, 20 Joe Trayfoot, 21 Richard Bolt, 22 Rory Clegg, 23 Charlie Walker.
Gloucester: 15 Olly Morgan, 14 Charlie Sharples, 13 Henry Trinder, 12 Lesley Vainikolo, 11 Tom Voyce, 10 Freddie Burns, 9 Nick Runciman, 8 Brett Deacon, 7 Matt Cox, 6 Peter Buxton (c), 5 Alex Brown, 4 Tom Savage, 3 Rupert Harden, 2 Nathan Charles, 1 Nick Wood.
Replacements: 16 Darren Dawidiuk, 17 Dan Murphy, 18 Dario Chistolini, 19 Dave Lyons, 20 Gareth Evans, 21 Dan Robson, 22 Tim Taylor, 23 Jonny May.
