The familiar surroundings of the Kassam will not offer any crumbs of comfort to London Welsh, as they seek to break that duck, and launch a bid to maintain their Premiership status before it is too late. They have played eight fixtures at the venue in all competitions this season, all of which have resulted in defeat. Their last win on the ground coming against Bristol in the first leg of last year's Championship final.

Harlequins have won only one of their last four Premiership fixtures, and are in danger of slipping off of the pace for both a post-season play-off berth, and also a high enough finish in the table to qualify for next season's European Champions Cup. The last six fixtures between the two clubs have all gone the way of Harlequins, and it would be a major surprise, if that run is not extended to seven wins by full time on Sunday.
