Full-time score from the Twickenham Stoop

Fans of rugby union were treated to match between the big guns tonight.

Home side Harlequins, topping the Premier League table, played host to French leaders Toulouse.

It was always going to be a big ask for Quins to continue their winning streak: in this Heineken Cup match, that unbeaten run came to an end.

Toulouse led from the beginning after just a few minutes. Although Quins leveled, it was just a matter of time before the French team once again took the lead - and held on to it.

A spirited display by Harlequins and great support from the fans, but it was not enough to match the speed, accuracy and strength of their opposition.

Full time: Harlequins 10 - 21 Toulouse.
