JORDAN Turner-Hall was merely rested for Harlequins' win over Worcester Warriors on Saturday and is not injured, Conor O'Shea has revealed.
Quins benefited from having all of their England players, apart from skipper Chris Robshaw, released for club duty while the Six Nations took a break – with Mike Brown and Joe Marler both featuring against Worcester.
And although Turner-Hall did not play, there is nothing for Quins fans to fear, according to director of rugby O'Shea.
He said: “I spoke to (acting England manager) Stuart Lancaster about it, and the way we play, everything revolves around the number 12.
“To come in and have play revolving around you when you have had different calls and different plays for the past few weeks would have been a big ask, so we gave Jordan a rest.”
O'Shea, who praised Brown for a magnificent full back's performance, was also pleased to see Marler get a full game.
He added: “Joe was magnificent, and it was good for him to get 80 minutes under his belt. He was absolutely buzzing before the game.
“Our two full-backs, Mike Brown and Tom Williams, really covered the pitch well too and have to take a lot of credit.”
Quins will lose their England players again this weekend when they return to England duty against Wales, and those left behind travel to Gloucester.
