One man who has flourished at Harlequins this season is Nathan Earle.

Having joined in the summer from arch-rivals Saracens, the 24-year-old winger claimed he had 'no regrets whatsoever' in the move having excelled at The Stoop under Paul Gustard, establishing himself as a regular starter.

Earle worked under Gustard at Sarries before the Defence Coach moved on to the England set-up.

It was a coincidence the pair were re-acquainted in the summer at Quins but Hong Kong-born Earle believes the West London outfit are benefitting from what Gustard learned from his time with Saracens and with England.

“I feel he’s brought the best of the two environments he’s been involved in,” said Earle.

“I feel the group is a tighter knit group (than Saracens) and I enjoy being part of it.

“We play a far more attacking brand of rugby, a brand where we hold the ball a lot more.

“Sarries play low risk, and rely on their defence.

“I feel the rugby we play is far more exciting and I’m enjoying it.”
