Harlequins RL captain Mark McLinden will make his first appearance at the Twickenham Stoop against Castleford after recovering from a torn hamstring.
The former Canberra Raiders half-back made a big impact in his first season with the London Broncos last year but has missed all four matches so far under their new guise after being injured in the build-up to the opening game against St Helens.
?He?s named in the 20 and he will also be in the 17,? said coach Tony Rea.
With Thomas Leuluai returning from a broken ankle against St Helens and Luke Dorn making his comeback from a hamstring injury in last week?s 10-6 win at Hull, Rea will have his trio of play-makers available for the first time.
McLinden said: ?It?s been a tough month but I?m excited about playing my first game for Harlequins.?
