Harlequins will be without Mike Brown for their Aviva Premiership clash with Exeter Chiefs today after the full-back failed a late fitness test.
Ollie Lindsay-Hague takes over the number 15 jersey, with Ugo Monye also coming into the side after wing Sam Smith picked up a knock in training on Saturday.
Exeter welcome back captain Dean Mumm for the fixture at Sandy Park, which sees both sides attempting to keep alive faint hopes of making Europe and the Premiership play-offs respectively. Exeter sit nine points off seventh-placed Wasps, who are the likely candidates to face Stade Francais in a play-off for entry into the new European Rugby Champions Cup. Harlequins are fifth and chasing Bath for a place in the Premiership semi-finals.
Exeter also have a new-look front row for the crucial fixture, with Carl Rimmer, Luke Cowan-Dickie and Hoani Tui all coming back into the starting XV.
