Harlequins play their last home game of the season this weekend against Bath Rugby in the Gallagher Premiership.

Kick-off at the Twickenham Stoop is at 3pm on Saturday.

Kick-off at Richmond Athletic Ground is at 3pm on Saturday.

That will be a tall order as Jersey have lost just once all season, and that was away against Ealing, and no one has taken even a point off them at home. 

Kick-off at Stade Santander is at 2pm on Saturday.
