Harlequins team to play Bath Rugby

Harlequins has announced the squad to play Bath Rugby in Round 16 of the Aviva Premiership on Friday at The Stoop, kick-off 19:45 (live on BT Sport).

There are four changes to the starting team which played Sale Sharks last week.

Behind an unchanged forward pack, Karl Dickson and George Lowe return from injury to start, with Charlie Walker and Henry Cheeseman named on the wings. Second year Academy member Cheeseman will be making his Aviva Premiership debut for The Club.

Among the replacements Sam Twomey and Ollie Lindsay-Hague are named, having recovered from injuries sustained in December against London Irish.

In injury news, following specialist consultation, Marland Yarde is expected to be out for four to five weeks having suffered a shoulder injury against Sale Sharks. After further review, centre Winston Stanley is expected to return to action in late April.
