Bath United team to face Harlequins

Bath United tonight travel to the Twickenham Stoop to take on Harlequins in an Aviva A League clash, kick-off 19.30.

The United side looks strong, with hotly tipped prospects like the ubiquitous Tom Dunn and the powerful Will Spencer taking the field alongside some real experience. Ben Williams will play for the first time since having shoulder surgery in May, Mat Gilbert will shore up a youthful but athletic back row, and Tom Biggs, fresh from the fantastic win over Leicester Tigers on Saturday, will add huge commitment and pace to the backline.

Alongside some new faces, there is a smattering of international class. Alafoti Fa'osiliva, Martin Roberts and Tom Heathcote – of Samoa, Wales and Scotland respectively - will look to steady the ship and to bring through exciting young hopefuls like Marcus Beer, who starts tonight's game at fullback.
