Going into the second half, Quins were leading Sale Sharks 14-8.
The re-start saw both sides determined to make an impact. Harlequins scored first through a Nick Evans penalty in the opening couple of minutes.
The Sharks did not give in easily and only a well-timed tackle into touch prevented a try.
Evans added to the Quins points after dominance in the scrum earned the home side a penalty.
With three-quarters of the game gone, Sale got some points through the boot of Cipriani following infringement from the hosts.
Points continued to be added to both teams as penalties were given away and kicked between the posts. Quins had additional chances to cross the line but knock-ons, forward passes and double-movements denied them.
Robson broke the mold in the 34th minute, adding a try for the home side. Evans converted. The supporters had belief a bonus point could be achieved. This looked doubtful as the clock counted down. But a penalty-tap by Care started the final play of the game. Brown crossed, Evans converted. The fans erupted!
Full-time at the Twickenham Stoop: Harlequins 37-14 Sale Sharks

Half time at the Stoop
The hosts started quickly from the first whistle.
Harlequins applied pressure, passing the ball from right to left until Monye was bundled over the line in the 2nd minute for the first points of the game. Evans happily converted.
Sale were gifted an opportunity for some of their own points after accidental crossing by the home side. Cipriani sending the ball wide.
The Sale no.10 did redeem himself ten minutes into the game, kicking a penalty.
Momentum of play switched to the Sharks as the ref made some bizarre decisions, and the visitors took the lead through a try of their own. Conversion missed.
As the half progressed, Quins dominated. Jordan Turner-Hall crossed for a try, Evans adding the extra two points.
