Following last weeks narrow defeat to Pontypridd in the semi final of the SWALEC Cup the Quins have an opportunity to redeem themselves in this end of season league fixture away to Cardiff.

We also see areturn to the side of Aled Thomas who has been on Scarlets duty for much of the season. Aled is at full back in place of the injured James Dixon.
