Nothing about this on quins website or Twitter, not sure why they'd announce the team today with Horwill included only for him to then not be available.

We've seen players break down in the warm up session before a match. So it cannot be unknown that a player seems to be making progress then suddenly back slides again.

If he's unfit now it's just stupid to name him

Just keep kicking high ball to Solomona and running at him, his catching and defence is average at best.

Agreed that the 15 looks better than feared.
My concern is the bench. Half of the bench has 8 appearances between them.

That is a bit misleading though

Swainston, Lewis, Glynn have all played about 100 games each in the prem for their previous sides

12 < 100...

Well the club mentioned Horwill's return to the team yet again in a statement today at 1028, so if he's still injured, no one's told the press office or they really are playing a weird game -- because it's not like we have a better player who can suddenly show up in his place.

It would be certainly be bold to make the opposition believe your best 2nd row is playing then throw them into confusion by playing Matthews instead.

So he was right - which does beg the question...what were they playing at?

Presumably you can keep trying to pass the concussion protocol up until the actual match, hence you put him in the team sheet and keep trying?.

JK said the team trained the night before. 5 players were touch and go for the match, 3 never made it (two being Horwill and Glynn I guess). 2 made it (one of which was Clifford).
I take it that we named our strongest team with the players we thought/hoped would be fit. Some made it, some never
