Harlequins rugby team are not heading up the Gallagher Premiership table anytime soon, after a shocking 5 game losing streak. The south west London team are usually a strong team to face, with five of their players being called for Steve Bothwick’s England squad who are facing Wales on Saturday. The team most recently faced Gloucester, who are fourth on the table and lost to a pitying 28-26.

The team is most famous for providing many players for the England team and for the Lions Tours. Some of their current most famous faces are: Joe Marchant, who primarily plays centre for Harlequins, Alex Dombrandt, primarily a fly half, and Marcus Smith, who has become a regular England player following Owen Farrell as a fly half.

Hopefully the team can bring back their famous game play before playing against one of their biggest rivals, Saracens, at the end of March. As they are currently at the top of the table with 57 points compared to Harlequins 34, Quins need to change their game plan quickly if they want to progress further.

Harlequins will move up the board if they win their next game as they are currently tied in points with Exeter Chiefs, who they are playing next on 4th March. This game will played on home turf for Harlequins, at Twickenham Stadium, so the pressure will be on to prove to fans their shot at the Gallagher Cup isn’t over. To add any more pressure to the players, their 2022/23 seasonal hospitality memberships has sold out, selling for at least £320, meaning fans want to get their moneys worth!
