Nick Easter will equal Harlequins appearance record when the forward faces Bath at The Stoop on Saturday.

Number 8 Nick Easter will make his 232nd appearance, equalling Ceri Jones’ record for the highest professional appearances for the club.

Easter starts in a forward pack which sees two changes to the one which beat Exeter Chiefs. Maurie Fa’asavalu starts at blindside flanker in place of Luke Wallace who picked up a knock last week.

George Robson returns to start in the second row and partners Charlie Matthews. In the one change to the backline, Mike Brown starts at full-back.

Among the forwards, Will Collier will look to make his first appearance since sustaining an injury in January’s Heineken Cup match against the Scarlets.

Harlequins side to face Bath: 15. Mike Brown 14. Tom Williams 13. Tim Molenaar 12. Jordan Turner-Hall 11. Ugo Monye 10. Nick Evans 9. Danny Care 1. Joe Marler 2. Dave Ward 3. Kyle Sinckler 4. Charlie Matthews 5. George Robson 6. Maurie Fa’asavalu 7. Chris Robshaw (C) 8. Nick Easter
