From the offy - only one at the Stoop.


Harlequins will play Bristol Rugby, London Irish and Jersey Reds in preparation for the 2017/18 season.

Ahead of the new season, Harlequins will travel away to Bristol Rugby and London Irish before facing Greene King IPA Championship side Jersey Reds at The Stoop.

Harlequins kick off their pre-season schedule by taking on Bristol on Saturday 5th August at Cleve RFC (kick-off 14:30). Harlequins faced Bristol on the opening day of the 2016/17 Aviva Premiership season, running out 21-19 winners before beating them 8-42 at Ashton Gate in February.

The following weekend - on Saturday 12th August (kick-off 15:00) - sees the Londoners face recently promoted London Irish in the next instalment of the Cunningham Duncombe Series at Irish's Hazlewood training ground.

The series is titled in memory of former London Irish fly-half Jarrod Cunningham and former Harlequins scrum-half Nick Duncombe. Irish currently hold the trophy following last pre-season's 12-28 victory at The Stoop.

Concluding their pre-season fixture list, Harlequins will host Jersey Reds at The Stoop on Saturday 19th August (kick-off 14:00) with a fortnight to go before the start of the 2017/18 Premiership season. Harlequins will return the favour and travel to play Jersey in the 2018/19 pre-season.

Preceding the match against Jersey, Harlequins will be hosting a Members morning between 10:00 and 12:00. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet players and coaches, take a tour of The Stoop, meet and train with the newly-launched Harlequins Ladies and much more. Full details of the Members morning will be released soon on quins.co.uk.

Confirming the pre-season fixture list, Director of Rugby John Kingston said:

"Pre-season friendlies are absolutely vital for our preparation and it's crucial we face meaningful and competitive opponents going in to the start of the 2017/18 season.

"Last season we only played two matches and on balance we thought it would be important to play three matches this year to ensure we hit the ground running ahead of the season proper.

“We’ve left a clear fortnight in between our last friendly and the start of the league season to make sure we have as clean a bill of health as possible going in to our opening match."

Harlequins pre-season fixtures:
Bristol Rugby v Harlequins, Saturday 5th August, Cleve RFC (kick-off 14:30).
London Irish v Harlequins, Saturday 12th August, Hazlewood (kick-off 15:00).
Harlequins v Jersey Reds, Saturday 19th August, The Stoop (kick-off 14:00).

Shame there's only the one home pre-season fixture, but it'll be interesting to see Jersey.

I read this as some poor trolling regarding Quins' prospects for the coming season.
But apparently not: [www.jerseyreds.je]

I had feared it might be a jibe, but it's nice to see it isn't! I'm rather tempted to try to make that trip next year...

It is in the OP (Sm6)

Harlequins will return the favour and travel to play Jersey in the 2018/19 pre-season.

Hazelwood for the Cunningham Duncombe, really doesn't seem to the game justice.
Well not unless it now got seats and a decent car park

2 at home last year out of 2

1 at home this year out of 3

3 from 5 overall isn't that bad, especially with London Irish away at Hazelwood!

Shouldn't it be a "twine" now that you have merged two threads...

Definitely going. Sunbury is a short distance to get to. Also thinking of going to the Bristol game. Is anyone else from the Twickenham area going to that one?
