A Weekend of Success at Twickenham
Fans of Rugby Union have experienced a weekend of exciting and nail-biting action.

Congratulations must first go to Harlequins. They led the Premiership from the start of the season; triumphed over Northampton Saints to get into their first ever Premiership final; and on Saturday lifted the trophy after a tense battle against eight-time finalists Leicester Tigers: Quins 30 - 23 Leicester Tigers.

The action at Twickenham continued on Sunday with the first outing of the new-look England team under the newly-appointed Head Coach Stuart Lancaster.

The fans were not to be disappointed. After boo's from the crowd reverberated around the stadium when England decided to kick their first two penalties rather than drive for the line, they changed their tactics. They played with ball in hand and the points piled on the scoreboard. The final whistle blew England 57 - 26 Barbarians.

To round off the weekend and not miss out on their glory, Surrey beat Leicestershire in the County Championship Shield: Surrey 42 - 12 Leicester.
