Half-Time at the Twickenham Stoop

Coming into this weekend Harlequins topped the premier league table, 1 point ahead of second place Northampton Saints.

Heading into this game and Quins were pushed into second place. This afternoon a win would take them back to the top spot.

Standing in their way are 5th placed Saracens.

Within 2 minutes Quins were in the lead through a Nick Evans penalty.

Brown collected the re-start well but the home-side making school-boy errors in the ruck passed possession back to the visitors.

Play continued to switch sides on a regular basis but a well-taken line out by the Quins and subsequent penalty award gave them the opportunity to add to their lead. The posts, however, kept the ball out and handed it back into the arms of waiting Saracens.

12 minutes down and the visitor's no. 10 Farrell was gifted a penalty kick in front of the posts, leveling the score.

Evans once again took the lead for the home-side through a penalty following an offside tackle.

Farrell leveled and it looked like this was to be a game won or lost on penalties.

The scores reached 6-9 to Saracens after Quins number 4 was sin-binned for an illegal tackle. A man down and the Quins still fought on: Danny Care took a tap-kick and sprinted across the line for the first try of the game in the 37th minute. Evans converted.

Half-time Harlequins 13 - 9 Saracens at the Twickenham Stoop.
