After Harlequins remarkable 39-39 draw against Gloucester at Twickenham over the Christmas period, they face their London rivals who are setting a hot pace at the top of the table. Harlequins will need to be at their best after an inconsistent start to the season, but on their day are a match for anyone.

Founded in 1866, Harlequins are one of London’s premier rugby clubs. In 1906, the club was invited by the Rugby Football Union to use the new national stadium in Twickenham which soon after became the headquarters of the Harlequin Football Club.

The Twickenham Stoop has been the home of Harlequin FC since 1963, the stadium is situated just across the road from the Home of English rugby, Twickenham Stadium. The Stoop is an all-seater stadium consists of four stands and has a capacity of 14,800, making it the third largest dedicated rugby ground in the Aviva Premiership.
