Harlequins director of rugby Dean Richards will field an unchanged team for Sunday’s Guinness Premiership match against his former club Leicester Tigers if captain Nick Easter passes a late fitness test.

Richards keeps faith with the side that beat Worcester Warriors last weekend as Quins prepare to welcome Tigers to the Twickenham Stoop (kick off 1.15pm).

The team includes World Cup scrum-half Andy Gomarsall, England international wing David Strettle, summer signing De Wet Barry at centre and this season’s top Premiership points-scorer Chris Malone at fly-half. Former Tigers flanker Will Skinner wears the No7 shirt, with Ricky Nebbett,  another with Leicester links, among the replacements.

Easter suffered a knee injury in last week's win at Worcester and now faces a fitness test, with Tom Guest on standby to join the squad.
