Robshaw returns as Visser makes Harlequins debut

Harlequins has announced the squad to play Bath Rugby in Round 3 of the Aviva Premiership at The Rec on Saturday, kick-off 13:30.

There are six changes to the starting team which played Leicester Tigers last week.

Joe Marler, Joe Gray, Chris Robshaw, Nick Easter and Club captain Danny Care make their first starts of the season, while Tim Visser, who starts on the wing, makes his senior debut for Harlequins.

Among the replacements, Luke Wallace and Karl Dickson are named.

Back-row forward Netani Talei suffered a knee injury during Monday evening's match with Newport Gwent Dragons. The Fijian is expected to be out for a considerable period of time and a further update will be provided following consultation with a specialist.
