Bath Rugby are currently sitting in the final play-off place as we go into the last round of Premiership fixtures. However, Harlequins are hot on their heels and are only three points behind them. The two contenders will go head-to-head in their final game. Only one can make the play-offs.

Bath know that a draw will secure their play-off spot. Harlequins have home advantage and must win the game to keep any title hopes alive. The game is now brilliantly poised. 

It is a game that will be decided by a number of key battles across the pitch. The most important area will be the half-backs, where George Ford and Micky Young take on Nick Evans and Danny Care. 

There are also some big battles up front in the forwards. Leroy Houston and Nick Easter will engage in a carrying contest, while David Wilson and Joe Marler will be looking to secure the scrum.

In this play-off eliminator five battles in particular will take centre stage.
