England winger Ugo Monye will return to the Harlequins line-up to face London Welsh at the Stoop on Friday.

Monye missed the opening win over Wasps through injury, but his return means George Lowe can slot back into the centres alongside Jordan Turner-Hall.

Karl Dickson also comes into the backs after impressing off the bench, while Tom Guest is named in the back-row.

Ben Botica is poised for his debut off the bench after he landed 17 points for the A team against Saracens on Monday.

Welsh boss Lyn Jones has made five changes to his starting XV - including a debut for Tyson Keats.

The New Zealand scrum-half starts after joining from the now-defunct Aironi, with Nick Runciman retaining his place on the bench.

Matt Corker, Mike Denbee and Ed Jackson also start, while a positional switch sees Daniel Browne moving from No.8 to blindside flanker.
