Former Weybridge Vandals youngster James Gulliver will make a senior debut for Harlequins on Friday in the the Singha Sevens Series at Northampton Saints' Franklin's Garden home.

England elite player group teen Gulliver, who started his career at Vandals where his father Stuart was once first team captain, has been named in the 12-man squad to take on Group C rivals Gloucester Rugby, Northampton Saints and Saracens.

The youthful squad, managed by academy coach Howard Graham and captained by Calum Waters, comprises new and familiar Academy members as well as guest appearances from England Sevens contracted stars Cam Cowell and Oscar Hirskyj-Douglas.

Established Quins academy members Robbie Nairn, Waters, Sam Aspland-Robinson and Henry Cheeseman are named, alongside the first year intakes Gabriel Ibitoye, Niall Saunders, Dino Lamb-Cona, Jonas Mikalcius and James Lang.

Epsom College student Gulliver recently skipped a family holiday to Canada to begin pre-season training with Harlequins this summer and the sacrifice has paid off.
