Harlequins vs Saracens at The Stoop in Twickenham

Overcast, damp in the air, spots of rain. A lot of talk amongst the supporters that a fair-weather game would see Quins dominate; rain and Saracens would come out on top. A contest of Premiership Rugby Union at The Stoop in Twickenham.

An early advantage to Quins with a line-out in the Saracens half. They took it well with strong passing. The visitors conceded a penalty after putting hands in the ruck, gifting the home-side an early 3 point lead after just 3 minutes.

The Saracens restart was taken well by Quins' no. 15 Brown, but it was a heart-stopping moment for Quins' fans when their attempted kick to safety was run-down and the TMO (television match official) declared no-try.

A thumping tackle by Quins' no. 11 Monye stopped Saracens from coming back up the field but an infringement by Quins allowed Saracens a line-out in the home-side 22. Good passing but no forward movement. Quins stole the ball and kicked down the field.

The first scrum of the game came 8 minutes in following a knock-on by Quins in their own half. The visitors passed the ball out wide to Strettle who was tackled 5 metres from the line. Saracens attempted a chip-over but Monye was there to catch it, call the mark and kick to safety.

This time Quins broke with fancy footwork from Monye. Saracens no. 15 was shown the yellow card after deliberately blocking the Quins' number 11 after he had kicked the ball on. Evans doubled the lead to 6 points through the penalty which followed. 13 minutes in and Saracens had no points on the board.

Quins defence was hitting hard yet Saracens kept coming. The home side earned a line-out and they formed a maul, progressing up the field, until the referee blew for a Saracens penalty; Harlequins penalised for holding on.

An easy kick for Farrell and Saracens finally had points on the board.

Quins looked alive when then they had ball-in-hand and Monye would have crossed for a try if it was not for the fact the ball was passed behind him and his momentum too strong to prevent the ball from going into touch.

Evans, however, made it three from three penalty kicks after Saracens were penalised for not releasing. Harlequins were 9-3 ahead after 28 minutes.

Saracens started to fight harder for the ball, attacking rucks and scrums, stealing the ball. A scrum was awarded to the visitors, which then changed to a penalty after it collapsed. Saracens took it quickly and crossed the Quins' try line.

Whilst the referee asked the TMO for a decision; Harlequins and Saracens decided to continue the debate in their own way; Williams - his 200th appearance for Harlequins, held up the ball meaning no-try for Saracens, however Quins' number 6 Fa'asavalu was sin-binned for his part in the affray.

The visitors attack again and Quins are penalised for pulling down the maul; Farrell kicks for the posts and brings Saracens to within 3 points.
Quins, however, were not going to let Saracens have the last word of the first half. Evans steered the ball between the posts for another 3-point penalty after the visitors were penalised for holding on.

Half-time came with a sense of relief all round after the visitors made their way back over the line at the end of 40 minutes, but once again a try was not awarded.

Half-Time: Harlequins 12 - 6 Saracens

The second half started with a few testing kicks back and forth. Brown was up to the challenge for the home side. The Quins' maul was again very strong and ploughed through the defence. This was a good performance from Harlequins.

Small errors, however, prevented points being added to the board.

Saracens were awarded a penalty after dominating in the scrum but Farrell had one of his off-moments and missed the opportunity of adding another 3 points.

It was not long before Saracens were back in Quins' territory. Strettle slipped through the staunch home-side defence and Ashton crossed for a try under the posts. This time the TMO did award it after checking replays for a suspected forward-pass.

The conversion by Farrell put Saracens ahead for the first time in the game.

Quins still kept their wits but a Saracens' line-out saw the visitors form a maul and move on up to the 5 metre line. Quins' number 1 Marler was shown the yellow card after brining down the formation just short of the try-line.

Try-saving tackles were made by the home-side but the visitors still added points to the board, pulling away through penalties.

17 minutes left and Saracens were now 19-12 ahead. This increased to 22-12 through the boot of Farrell.

Less than 8 minutes left and Evans was given the opportunity of trying to salvage a losing bonus-point for Harlequins after Saracens were penalised again for holding on.

This time the uprights refused to let the ball go over.

Both teams continued to break the other's defence, yet each time another score looked possible, more errors crept in handing play to the opponents.
Saracens slowed the ball to run down the clock and eventually the final whistle blew.

Harlequins did not get their 1-point losing bonus; Saracens, although victorious, were unable to continue their run of maximum-point wins.

This game, although disappointing for Quins not to win after a strong first-half, showed a lot of strength, determination and progression. It also proved that Saracens, despite having a great start to their season, could be pushed and could be challenged.

There is a long way to go in this rugby union Premiership season.

Spelthorne backs Heathrow expansion
Spelthorne Council is backing the future expansion of Heathrow, but not the South West option which would affect Stanwell, Stanwell Moor and Ashford North.

The Council’s Cabinet wants the airport to remain as the leading airport in Europe.

But they said the south west option would cause enormous environmental problems for Spelthorne residents, cost more than proposals for the north west side of the airport and take three years longer to build.

The Davies Commission is reducing approximately 50 submissions to a handful of options for consultation in December. A final report is not expected until mid 2015.

Healthier in Kingston
People in Kingston are healthier than the average for English people.

Life expectancy is longer and death rates have fallen from all causes in the last 10 years.

The Public Health England profile found that the borough had lower rates of early death from cancer, heart disease and strokes.

Road injuries and deaths, along with deaths linked with smoking and alcohol related hospital stays were also better.

One figure that was higher than the average was for the number of sexually transmitted diseases. However, this may be the result of improved testing and diagnosis.
