Full Time at The Stoop in Twickenham
Half-Time at the Twickenham Stoop: Harlequins 10 - 8 Worcester Warriors.

The play a the start of the second half switched frequently between the two teams.

The boot of Nick Evans resumed the scoring for the home side, adding 3 points. The Warriors were soon awarded a penalty of their own, which they took.

Not to be outdone, the Quins no. 10 slotted another through the posts and it seemed discipline on both sides had slipped.

A fumble by Quins on the re-start gave the visitors an attacking scrum which soon reverted to a penalty. This score brought them to within 2 points of the hosts.

Further points went begging for both teams: Quins no. 10 missing kicks, and the Warriors so close to a try but a chip supposed to head over the defense was caught and the mark called.

In the dying minutes it was very close - a score by boot or try was all the visitors required to take the lead.

Luck eventually came the Quins way and a collapsed scrum handed the put-in to the home side. The ball was quickly passed back and kicked into touch to end the game.

Another mighty win for the Quins this was not - but a win all the same.

Full time at the Twickenham Stoop: Harlequins 16 - 14 Worcester Warriors.

Half-Time at The Stoop in Twickenham
There was pressure on the Quins from the off. Indiscipline allowed for a strong attacking line-out for Worcester.

Within the opening 6 minutes the Warriors no. 10 Danny Gray scored a penalty, giving the visitors a 3 point lead.

From the re-start Worcester broke through the Quins defense for an easy try. The conversion was missed.

Ten minutes gone and the Quins got an attacking line out. The ball moved from left to right with a neat little chip through. However after going to the TMO no try was given.

Poor ball play by the Quins ensued: a throw from a line out was deemed too slow, a simple pass knocked on, and another thrown straight into touch.

In the 23rd minute of play the Quins finally got some points on the board, number 10 Nick Evans kicking between the posts.

Just a couple of minutes later play was stopped. The Warriors number 14 Marcel Garvey was stretchered from the field with what looked to be a serious injury.

The home side had a good run of play until an accidental obstruction allowed the Warriors to kick to safety.

In the 29th minute of play the Quins were awarded a penalty try after a strong maul was brought down approaching the try line. As the Warriors were reduced to 14 men, Nick Evans added the conversion.

In a shocking first half Harlequins were lucky to be leading. At half time Harlequins 10-8 Worcester Warriors.
