Mike Brown and Joe Merler available to Conor O’Shea’s side

England’s Mike Brown and Joe Marler return to The Stoop this weekend as Harlequins face Bath in front of a sell-out crowd.

Full back Brown starts in the number 15 shirt alongside Ugo Monye and Tom Williams start outside him on the wings.

The midfield sees Jordan Turner-Hall and George Lowe pair up in the centres while Nick Evans and Danny Care will marshal the troops from the half back positions.

Also returning from international duty is Joe Marler who starts at prop with Joe Gray and James Johnston completing the front row.

George Robson will captain the side from the second row giving, England captain Chris Robshaw a well-earned break after a successful Six Nations campaign but, rest assured, he’ll be back for Quins’ trip to Wembley to play Saracens next week.

Meanwhile Robson links up with fellow lock Ollie Kohn, while Tom Guest, Luke Wallace and Nick Easter round off the eight-man pack.

Rob Buchanan, Mark Lambert and Will Collier will provide front row cover from the bench while Tomas Vallejos and Mo Fa’asavalu cover the back five.

Karl Dickson and Rory Clegg will cover nine and ten with Ross Chisholm coming in for the rest of the backs.

Harlequins: Brown, Williams, Lowe, Turner-Hall, Monye, Evans, Care, Marler, Gray, Johnston, Kohn, Robson, Guest, Wallace, Easter

Replacements: Buchanan, Lambert, Collier, Vallejos, Fa’asavalu, Dickson, Clegg, Chisholm
