Saints too Good for Quins
07 January 2012
Harlequins fell to their second loss of the Aviva Premiership season last night after leaving Franklin’s Gardens with a 24-3 defeat at the hands of Northampton Saints.
The Quins Boys trailed from early on in the match, and could only manage a solitary penalty from Rory Clegg on the scoreboard, while two tries, one conversation, three penalties and a drop goal were enough to give Northampton a confident win.
Harlequins still top the table ahead of London rivals Saracens, but the win for Saints brings them a step closer to catching the top two.
A full match report is available on the official Harlequins Rugby Union website.
