Crusaders coach Iestyn Harris has made just one change to the initial squad that beat Wakefield two weeks ago, with Jordan Tansey returning for Ben Flower.

The utility has recovered from an ankle injury to take his place in the squad with Flower, who picked up a knock last time, the man to stand down.

Jarrod Sammut is still ruled out with an ankle injury but Harris has no fresh injury concerns.

"Everyone really rallied together following for the Wakefield game and we played some really good rugby at times," he said. "We were good value for the win and we need to carry that forward against Harlequins this week.

"It has obviously been a tough couple of weeks for everyone at the club. Some players have found clubs for next year whilst others haven't but that doesn't change how our attitude or how we approach the game.

"Certain players are playing for contracts and there is also pride at stake. No-one wants to finish bottom of the table and we can give ourselves a really good chance of improving our league position if we beat Harlequins this week.

"Harlequins is a massive game for us. It is a winnable game for us and we need to get ourselves off the bottom of the table. These last four games are huge and certain games are certainly within our grasp. We are defiantly targeting 4/4 - we are not just going to put our swords down because of what has happened.

"Harlequins are in a bit of a rut themselves so they will be looking to get back to winning ways. They've got some real attacking threats so defensively we need to be really sharp on Friday at the Racecourse."

Crusaders welcome back Chris Bailey after he missed the 48-22 defeat to Catalans a fortnight ago through injury.

Teenager Dan Sarginson is included after signing a new two-year deal but David Howell starts a six-match ban for the Quins after being found guilty of biting during the heavy loss to Catalans last time out.

Kyle Eastmond has joined the casualty list with a groin problem and joins dead-leg victims Jonny Lomax, Chris Flannery and Tommy Makinson on the sidelines.

However Gary Wheeler has recovered from a shoulder injury and returns to the squad for the first time since the Good Friday defeat to Wigan.
