Harlequins head of rugby Paul Gustard has called on his side to use their visit to Bath Rugby in the Heineken Champions Cup as an opportunity to right some wrongs.

Pride is the only thing on the line for both sides at the Rec under the Friday night lights as neither will be able to progress beyond the pool stages after indifferent campaigns.

The visitors have one win to their name from the opening four rounds, against their Gallagher Premiership rivals in Round 2, and their quarter-final hopes have already been extinguished.

But despite already being eliminated from Pool 3, Gustard insists his players must stand up and be counted off the back of their heavy defeat to Sale Sharks last weekend in the league.

“Bath represents a good opportunity for the squad to move forward and put together a complete performance based on a strong set piece, resilient defence and attacking threat,” he said.

Joe Marler will make his 200th appearance for the club against Bath and Gustard stressed it was important the team produced a performance fitting of the occasion.

“It is important to recognise the significance in Joe’s career at the club with an individual and collective performance that gives justice to that milestone,” he continued.

“We have implemented a number of changes to our squad for this week as we have picked up a couple knocks and we need to freshen people up.

“There was also a desire to offer opportunity to Dino and the returning Glen Young in the forwards and Brett, Luke, Tom and also Aaron who returned from a few months out last week against Sale.

“It’s important we regain our momentum, looking forward and not back. We are excited about the opportunity to play on Friday night against Bath.”

Kyle Sinckler also returns from injury after missing the Sale match last week and Aaron Morris makes his first start having made his comeback off the bench at the AJ Bell Stadium.

Luke Northmore makes his first start for Harlequins in his first Heineken Champions Cup appearance, since signing from Cardiff Metropolitan University in the summer.

Recent signing Tom Penny is among the replacement and in line for his first run out for Quins.
