Harlequins announce 2009/10 squad changes

Harlequins have completed their activity in the player market and have announced the following changes to their squad for next season.


Dean Richards, Harlequins Director of Rugby, said “We continue to be committed to a policy of promoting largely home grown and English talent.”

“I am delighted to see another excellent crop of young players being elevated from the Academy to the senior squad, whilst this year’s intake into the academy itself is felt to be a particularly promising one.
