Jade Konkel returns for Allianz Cup clash

  • +1

Harlequins Head Coach Amy Turner has named her side to host Trailfinders Women at The Stoop in the Allianz Cup.

Turner makes just two changes from the side who ran in an impressive five tries against Leicester Tigers a fortnight ago, as Quins look to secure seventh place in the Allianz Cup.

The front five remain unchanged, with vice-captain Katy Mew partnering England U20s lock Tyla Shirley in the second row. Aseza Hele moves into the Starting XV at flanker alongside Amelia harper and Nicole Wythe in the back-row.

In the backs, Katie Shillaker starts on the wing and Amy Layzell shifts to fullback replacing Jade Mullen. Rachael Burford captains the side from 12 with Lagi Tuima at outside centre.

Club Captain Jade Konkel is named amongst the Impact Players, making her return from an injury she sustained against Sale in November.
