Harlequins RL are to make a major announcement about securing the future of the club before their final game against Warrington on Friday night.

Doubts have grown over the London Super League franchise with the impending departure of their coach, Brian McDermott, and a number of players, as well as revelations about their precarious financial position. The RFL held crisis talks with Harlequins last week and it is understood new investment has been found, although not from the League.

Keiron Purtill has agreed a two-year extension to his contract as assistant coach at St Helens, removing him from the list of possible candidates to succeed McDermott.
