Quins and Wolves announce squads

Quins and Wolves announce squads

Harlequins coach Tony Rea will be without the services of both Lee Hopkins and Danny Williams for Saturday?s crunch game against the Warrington Wolves.

Hopkins was in line to play his 50th consecutive game for the club but has now been ruled out for up to six weeks having suffered a broken hand at Headingley last Sunday.

Hopkins has been an ever-present since joining the London club last season. The athletic back rower is naturally very disappointed:

Rea said: "We've been making some sound progress and this comes at a time when it felt like it was really coming together.

?We've got some strong back up these days and the younger guys are coming on really well. I have every confidence in them. I'll be back as soon as I can."

Rea will also be without the club's most experienced forward in Danny Williams who was hospitalised during the week with a hand infection.

Winger Matthew Gafa is also still unavailable with a hamstring injury, as is Thomas Leuluai who is still a couple of weeks off returning from the injury he sustained in the Anzac Test.
