Director of rugby Billy Millard said: “I want to thank our departing players for their contribution to Harlequins and for everything they have given throughout their time at the club.

“It’s been a pleasure to work with these players and I have no doubt they will succeed in their next chapter, whether that is in rugby or in their transition into a new career.


“We look forward to saying our goodbyes and thanking the players following Saturday’s match at The Stoop. I know the Quins faithful will provide them with a fitting farewell and thank them for their excellent service and dedication to our club.”
