Huge names and shock returns for Harlequins Vs Barbarians match

The Barbarians are now fully underway with their Autumn tour as they prepare to face off against former Premiership champions Harlequins on Thursday.

The Barbarians are fresh off the back of a terrific win over New Zealand XV at the weekend, with a couple of Quins players playing vital roles. This time around the Quins players in question are back in club colours, as Joe Marler and Joe Marchant stand to face the black and white of the Barbarians this time around.

The exciting Harlequins squad will see a number of international faces missing, including Andre Esterhuizen who is due to get a well-deserved start for South Africa on Saturday, as well as Tommaso (Tommy) Allan as he remains with the Italian squad, among others with international matches upcoming.

Quins are a side that boasts terrific strength in depth, as newcomer Josh Bassett looks to start for the Twickenham side, alongside the likes of the returning Alex Dombrandt.

The Barbarians bring along a star-studded team filled with ex-internationals and household names.

Harlequins fans will be thrilled to see the likes of Mike Brown joining the invitational side, as he makes his return to the Stoop, a stadium he played so many years of rugby in front of adoring fans.

Also noted, like Brown, will be many players who are currently without clubs due to personal circumstances and financial difficulties of recent times. Elliot Stooke and Gabriel Oghre will be representatives from the now redundant Wasps, while Graham Kitchener, Gareth Simpson and Murray McCallum will be taking to the field having seen the same issues with Worcester.

A notable return also for a certain Marland Yarde as he will take to the field for the first time since his January arrest.
