Half Time at the Twickenham Stoop: Harlequins 20 - 5 Zebre
The opening minutes of the second half were unsettled with possession changing sides in quick succession. Botica opened the scoring in the 43rd minute, crossing the line for a try. Evans added the conversion.
Quins were given possession again after Zebre's re-start did not make the required distance.
Although the home side came close to scoring again just a few minutes later, the visitors winning the chase for the ball, a messy period of play followed - light rain had started to fall during the half-time break and there were several knock-on and missed catches.
Another yellow card was shown to the visitors after deliberately playing the ball off their feet and from an offside position. Quins opted for a line-out which they collected, turned into a maul and drove for the line. Guest broke away for the try, once again converted.
Sam Smith wanted his name on the score sheet and ran over for a try in the 58th minute. Evans adding the two points.
Another line-out to Quins saw fast hands and Smith broke through Zebre, passing to Care who had an easy stroll to the line. This time Evans sent the ball wide.
Seemingly without an answer to the Harlequins' power, the visitors earned themselves another yellow card.
In a contest with a lot of close play, infringements were made from both sides. Zebre had a put-in at the scrum just metres from their line. The Quins bulldozed through once again and would not allow the visitors to clear.
They forced a knock-on from Zebre and once they had ball in hand it was not long before Dickson made a sprint for the line. Evans was back on form and converted.
Zebre were outplayed last week and again today. They did not add any points during the second half.
The strength of Harlequins was evident; their power in the scrums; speed with ball in hand. Yet warning signs remained - they lost concentration on too many occasions and confusion was evident when communication was lacking.

Half-Time at the Twickenham Stoop
Its round 4 of the European Cup in Rugby Union.
Harlequins started the game but handed possession to visitors Zebre after an attempted knock-back spilled forwards.
Quins regained possession in the scrum and play continued to favour the home side. They opened the scoring with an easy 3 penalty points off the boot of Evans.
The home side were given another opportunity to kick between the posts just 2 minutes later but they decided on a line-out in the corner. This tactic did not prove fruitful on this occasion.
However a beautiful bit of play came from another line-out. Quins secured the ball and passed quickly, allowing Evans to chip it through the visitor's defense for Casson to score. Conversion took the score 10-0.
There was a scare for the home side after a lack of concentration allowed Zebre to steal a ball deemed 'out' of the ruck. They kicked forward but Quins won the chase.
More scores looked on the cards for Quins but Zebre found a gap against the run of play. They broke through a rather sleepy Quins defense. A try was scored, conversion missed.
Despite this surge, Quins held their form and earned themselves another 3-points. They were dominant in the scrums and it seemed all that the visitors could do to slow the game down was commit infringements. Their number 12 received a yellow card and a penalty-try was awarded to Quins after the subsequent scrum and maul was brought down at the line. Evans added the additional 2 points.
Half-time: Harlequins 20 - 5 Zebre.

Groundwork underway for innovative housing programme
Innovative work to regenerate the Elizabeth House Sheltered Housing scheme and provide over 100 quality lifetime homes for older people and younger vulnerable adults is underway as the first foundations have been laid on site this month – and at no cost to the council.
The work will improve and transform the site which is in a conservation area nestling between Malden Road and Cheam Park. The new homes are being built alongside prestigious properties of historic interest.
The project is being delivered in two phases so the residents of Elizabeth House can remain on site un
til the new homes become available for them to move into. Residents that were re-housed off of the site will also have the opportunity to return.
The project is being delivered at no cost to the council and without any grant funding from the Government.
The developer will demolish, design, build and manage the new homes under a 125 year lease with the council.
There will be 15 one and two bedroom properties for sale, 30 for shared ownership and 86 for social rent. The council will have 100% nomination rights for all the rented properties.

Richmond Park's MP backing new awareness campaign
Zac Goldsmith is backing Meningitis Research Foundation’s activity ‘Meningitis Matters’ - to raise awareness of meningitis and septicaemia, and to ensure that tackling the diseases remains a top public health priority while the current NHS reforms are implemented.
Meningitis is still a serious and life-threatening disease, affecting around 3,400 people in the UK each year. Infants and young people are at greatest risk: meningitis causes the largest number of deaths amongst children under five - more than any other infectious disease.
Meningitis Matters aims to raise awareness of the disease and ensure that the changes imposed by the new Health and Social Care Act 2012 do not have a destabilising effect on meningitis research, surveillance and immunisation rates.

David Weir's medals worth their weight in gold
Not only did the Paralympian from Wallington win four gold medals at the 2012 Paralympics, but next Wednesday, his most recent gold medals will literally become worth their weight in gold.
You would think a gold medal would be made of solid gold, in actual fact they are gold plated. That won’t stop H&T Pawnbrokers handing over a cash donation to match the weight of not one, but each of his four gold medals.
David is no stranger to H&T Pawnbrokers, having been a Patron of Get Kids Going! which is the charity H&T nominated to work with early in 2011.
In that time they have raised £50,000 for the charity who helps get disable children into sports.
Two years of fund raising are now culminating in the flagship store in Sutton where Jane Emmerson, founder of Get Kids Going! and David Weir will be meeting CEO, John Nichols to weigh the gold medals and donate the weight of gold in cash to the charity.

Save a Life for Your New Year’s Resolution
That's the message from the NHS.
People from SW London and Surrey are being asked to consider saving a life or three for their New Year’s resolution by giving blood in 2013.
As the festive cheer leaves us and people ponder how to make the New Year better than the last, NHS Blood and Transplant is challenging people to spare an hour of their time to donate blood.
The New Year’s resolution message comes at a time when there a need to recruit new donors after a dramatic decline in the number of younger donors signing up in 2012.
NHSBT aims to recruit 100,000 new donors in 100 days to counteract this drop and protect future blood stocks.
With blood donation sessions available for people to book an appointment throughout 2013, it is important that people from London South West & Surrey help to maintain stocks as hospital demand for blood remains high at the start of the year.
For those keen to take up the challenge, they can do so at one of the following donor sessions:
Woking Football Club
Wednesday 2 January 2013
14:00 – 16:30 & 17:30 – 20:00
Anyone aged between 17-65, weighing more than 50 kg (7 stone 12lbs) and in general good health could potentially start saving lives by becoming a blood donor. There is no upper age limit for donors who have donated in the last two years. posted by Radio Jackie News Team @ 11:38 am

Life saving partnership undertaken
A partnership between the South East Lions Clubs and the Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance will help to save even more lives, at night, in 2013.
In launching their public appeal, Lions Clubs in the South East have pledged to raise £250,000 over the next 10 years which will help the charity to achieve its aim of night flying. The funds will be a significant contribution towards the additional £1 million a year needed to allow the Air Ambulance to extend its operations.
The Air Ambulance currently operates two helicopters with two crews working from 7am – 7pm.
But early next year the charity will replace one of its aircraft with a newer helicopter with night flying capabilities which will allow the charity to operate after dark from the charity’s Redhill base.
A notoriously ugly building in North Cheam is to finally get a make over.
The two part project, funded by the Outer London Fund, and Sutton council’s Innovation Fund, has dramatically revamped the front of the building.
