Harlequins’ New Name For Their Replacements Is Actually Embarrassing
To this day we still refuse to call Eddie Jones’ England replacements ‘finishers’ and something tells us Harlequins will be getting the same treatment off us if their new term for replacements continues.
The Premiership side played a pre-season friendly against Jersey Reds over the weekend, and named their starting XV on Twitter beforehand as clubs usually do.
But instead of calling their subs ‘replacements’ which is common practice – they decided to go with, wait for it… ‘game changers’.

Stop the world. I want to get off. If this catches on then rugby is finished.
