DERBY day arrives at the Twickenham Stoop tomorrow as London Irish take on Conor O’Shea’s Harlequins in Round 6 of the Aviva Premiership.
Having met in a two legged pre-season series earlier this year, this will be the third time the sides meet this season, so expect a fierce rivalry and some top class action.
Despite the Harlequins v London Irish rivalries, there are many familiar faces within both camps.
Number 8 Tom Guest, who made over 200 appearances for Harlequins, is likely to return to his old stomping ground along with Fijian international Aseli Tikoirotuma and Joe Trayfoot, who both transferred to the Exiles for the 2015/16 season.
