Harlequins are looking for a replacement fly-half after Ben Botica was ruled out for three months with a dislocated collar bone.

The Kiwi playmaker is not expected back until the start of 2015, leaving Quins short of
options at fly-half.

Nick Evans will start Friday’s Champions Cup clash against Castres, but Conor O’Shea has no cover on his bench if the former All Black gets injured.

It seems that either Danny Care or Karl Dickson would step in for Evans if he were forced off for any reason in the game at the Stoop.

In the meantime Quins are on the lookout for a replacement for Botica to provide some cover over the winter months.
