Aviva Premiership: Nick Easter to equal Harlequins appearance record
Aviva Premiership: Nick Easter will equal Ceri Jones's 232 Harlequins appearances on Saturday
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.
