Captain Will Skinner also returns to lead the Quins side after missing the Guinness Premiership victory at Bath last weekend with a stomach bug. He will once again join the formidable Quins back row with Chris Robshaw and Nick Easter.

The only other change to the side that beat Bath is in the centres, with Jordan Turner-Hall once again partnering Gonzalo Tiesi.

HARLEQUINS (v Leinster): Mike Brown; David Strettle, Gonzalo Tiesei, Jordan Turner-Hall, Ugo Monye; Nick Evans, Danny Care; Ceri Jones, Gary Botha, Mike Ross; James Percival, George Robson; Chris Robshaw, Will Skinner, Nick Easter.

Replacements: Tani Fuga, Mark Lambert, Jim Evans, Tom Guest, Andy Gomarsall, Chris Malone, Tom Williams.
