ABOUT HARLEQUINS

Harlequins Ladies head to Allianz Park on Saturday with one thing on their minds: overhauling Saracens Women at the top of the Tyrrells Premier 15s table.

Quins are four points behind with 13 games played thanks to a run of ten straight wins since the loss to Loughborough Lightning in round three.

That run included the scalp of Sarries at the Stoop back in October, when a strong second half performance gave them a narrow 20-17 win in front over more than 1,500 supporters.

Last season, Harlequins finished second and then lost to the Women in Black in the final of the inaugural Tyrrells Premier 15s final, a result they will be looking to avenge this time around.

Six Harlequins Ladies were among the 28 recently announced players to receive full-time professional contracts from the RFU – Jess Breach, Rachel Burford, Leanne Riley, Vickii Cornborough, Abbie Scott and Shaunagh Brown – and another, Emily Scott, was among the eight on Elite Player Squad agreements.
