Although declining to expand on the reason for his absence from England the Quins’ head of rugby, Paul Gustard, revealed that he would be involved in the Premiership trip to Kingsholm this weekend.
“Joe made a decision [on missing the England camp]. He’s available for selection for us this weekend,” Gustard said.
