Head coach Lyn Jones has praised Gordon Ross’s contribution to London Welsh.

The fly half makes his 100th appearance today, with Jones commenting: “One hundred appearances for any club is a huge achievement and honour, and Gordon fully deserves this accolade with London Welsh.

“He’s been a model professional.”

Ross is one of nine changes to the side beaten 39-17 by Stade Francais last weekend.

Tom Voyce and Sonny Parker also come into the backs, while Paulica Ion starts at tight head and Tom Bristow at loosehead.

On the bench, there’s a return from injury for Martin Purdy and Daniel Browne, and a place for Neath scrum half Luc Jones – son of Lyn – who joins the club on loan. With ten players away on international duty, Harlequins field an unfamiliar side.
