Harlequins have welcomed more false dawns than most clubs – as highlighted by their misfortune in the transfer market when it comes to exciting signings that ultimately proved disappointing.
1. Paul Doran-Jones
They signed the England international prop from Northampton in 2013 with then boss Conor O’Shea saying: “Not only is Paul talented, at his age he will only get better.” However, after two disappointing seasons at the Stoop, making just 19 appearances, he left to rejoin Gloucester.
