We need a Clermont win.

Listening to Sky's game build-up, you'd think the Stoop was a fortress and that Harlequins were the team who hadn't lost at home for years.

Barnes is already talking about Quins getting 5 points at Parc y Scarlets next weekend!

Currently 13-3 up. Clermont poor handling has let them down.

Why couldn't Clermont have played this badly against us? Their handling is appalling.

on the other hand good job the quins didn't play this well against us, defence is excellent

quins win with no bp for them and no losing bp for clermont  keeps us with a chance of winning the group

I agree.

No matter how well they're playing, if Clermont had managed to keep hold to any number of their dropped balls in the first half then the score would be totally different.
The ref (Lacey) is allowing Luke Walker to get away with murder at the breakdown. We'll have to watch that next weekend.

Try Clermont. Howler by Brown - lost footing allowing Nalago through, but they missed the conversion. 13-8

I think you're right. I'd rather Quins get no more than 1 point today, though.

I wish Barnes would be more positive in his commentary than constantly looking for teams to get 3 points from the boot.

Missed conversion. Draw with 5 mins to go.

Barnes talked twice now in space of 1 minute of 5 points for Quins next weekend. Is he the worst, most one-eyed commentator in the sport?

Quins had a penalty in front of the sticks but opted for the touch but lost the line out. 30 secs for clermont to see the game out

Line out to Quins on 5 metre line and they throw it crooked. Scrum to Clermont with 11 seconds on clock.
