Bath v Harlequins - Aviva Premiership match preview
Bath have named club captain Stuart Hooper in their side to face Bath in Friday's Aviva Premiership clash.

Former Army back Semesa Rokoduguni will also appear in the competition for the first time, partnering Matt Banahan in the centres, with Kyle Eastmond returning to the wing.

What they said...
Bath scrum-half Michael Claassens
"Having lost out to Harlequins in the LV= Cup last week, this is our chance to learn from the mistakes we made and improve on them at the Rec.
"To test ourselves against the likes of Quins is massive for us, and it's probably the biggest match of our season so far - it's a chance for us to prove we can compete with the best."
