Harlequins has announced that they will play Leicester Tigers in Big Game 12 at Twickenham Stadium in round 7 of the Premiership on SATURDAY 28TH DECEMBER (KICK-OFF: 16:30, LIVE ON BT SPORT)
Following their hard-fought victory over Wasps last year, in front of a capacity crowd at the Home of English Rugby, Quins will again make their customary journey over the A316 at the end of December for Big Game 12, the sporting event of the festive calendar.
In a delightful turn of symmetry, the 2019/20 edition of this famous fixture is a re-run of the original match played in 2008 – a thriller where Quins came from behind to secure a draw in the dying minutes of the contest. This was thanks to a try from England and British and Irish Lions winger Ugo Monye and a steely conversion from Premiership Rugby Hall of Famer and current Skills and Off the Ball Coach Nick Evans.
Since then, the two sides have enjoyed numerous thrilling encounters - including their match in Round 21 of last season’s Gallagher Premiership, played under the Friday Night Lights of The Stoop.
