Harlequins vs Sharks Predictions

Harlequins are surprisingly favourites for this clash given the form of the two sides. If the Sharks are close to full strength when the teams are announced I will be backing an away win.

Head to Head

Sharks beat Harlequins 39-31 in their only previous match. That fixture took place on 10 December 2022 in Durban.

Harlequins Form

Harlequins form this season has been poor in both the Champions Cup and Rugby Premiership. Facing the Sharks at home, they have now lost their last four matches.

A 15-12 home defeat to Bristol in the Rugby Premiership was followed by a 46-17 loss at Northampton. Sale then beat Harlequins 24-16 at home.

Last week the Quins suffered a 30-29 loss at Racing 92 in the Champions Cup. It is a must-win match this if Quins are to have any chance of progressing.

Harlequins Injuries & Team News

The Harlequins can still qualify but they need a good win here to have any chance. Expect them to be at full strength.

Sharks Form

Sharks are three from three in the Champions Cup and their overall form since the change of coach has been magnificent. The Durban side have won six of their last seven matches in all competitions.

After beating the Bulls 47-20 to close of 2022, the Sharks lost 24-12 in Connacht. They however bounced back immediately with a convincing home 32-3 victory over Bordeaux in the Champions Cup last weekend.

Sharks Injuries & Team News

The Sharks have already secured qualification to the next round. They are expected to rest players due to the tough travel schedule from South Africa.
