The All-English clash at the Memorial Ground will be keenly contested with Bristol emerging with genuine ambitions of qualification for the quarter-finals.

The West Country club grabbed a 17-3 win at the Twickenham Stoop last Saturday to back up their shock win over tournament favourites Stade Francais.

Bristol have only lost one out of their four previous Heineken Cup matches at home, a 25-12 defeat to Leinster Lions in 2003.

And Harlequins are no great travellers with their last away victory in the competition back in 2001 with a 30-24 win at Bridgend. 

Harlequins have made a number of changes to the side that started against Bristol last Saturday (8th December) for their Heineken Cup rematch against Bristol on Sunday (16th December), kick off 3.00pm.

In the forwards, Tom Guest returns from the England 7’s team to take the number 8 position, alongside Chris Hala’ufia and Will Skinner, who will captain the side, in the back row. The front row will sees Aston Croall and Ricky Nebbett making their first start for Quins in the Heineken Cup this season.

The half back pairing of Danny Care and Adrian Jarvis remain the same, whilst David Strettle will return to the wing with Jordan Turner-Hall and Haldane Luscombe playing at inside and outside centre, respectively.
