Richards feels his players deserve a chance for the Lions
Harlequins director of rugby Dean Richards fears his players will be overlooked for this summer's British and Irish Lions tour to South Africa.
Wasps' director of rugby Ian McGeechan is Lions head coach and Wasps head coach Shaun Edwards is defence coach.
Richards said: "I'd like to think my players will get called up but, in Ian and Shaun, you've got two Wasps boys.
"I would imagine that there will be quite a few Wasps players going and that they won't be looking at Quins."
Quins are back on top of the Premiership table following Wednesday's crushing 60-14 victory over Worcester at The Stoop.
A crowd of more than 10,000 saw Richards's side score 10 tries, including a hat-trick by England number eight Nick Easter.
Easter is looking to force his way into the Lions squad, telling BBC London 94.9: "It is not being selected until 21 April so you hope you can play your way into the squad.
It's the business end of the year, I'm used to being in the mix and you get a huge buzz out of it
"It's the ultimate isn't it? It is definitely up there with the World Cup where you get selected for your country.
"To be selected among four countries, it really is the best of the best, and it would be a dream come true.
"Obviously your form during the Six Nations has a lot to do with Lions selection but there's some Heineken Cup games coming up and I know we've got pretty big competition in the back row when we play Leinster."
Quins have a home Heineken Cup quarter final against Leinster on Sunday 12 April.
"Hopefully I'll be playing in that one and make a good impression," Easter said.
Richards is also looking to maintain his side's good form domestically and admits he is enjoying the pressure.
"It's the business end of the year, I'm used to being in the mix and you get a huge buzz out of it, this is what it's all about," he added.
"To be honest I couldn't care less if we're first, second or third at this moment in time.
"It's what happens at the end of the season which is the most important thing. We've got three games to go, lets go out win the three games and see what happens."
