  • Castres 14-15 Wasps
    Seems like that came off a Wasps player so Castres get the scrum. The ball goes to the backs and it looks like Thomas Combezou is through...however the ref blows for obstruction.

  • Castres 17-15 Wasps [penalty-rugby]
    a good drive from Castres gets them into the Wasps 22 - it's a penalty for the home side. With Kockott off it's up to full-back Julien Dumora to take the kick. It's a great kick and he gives Castres the lead.

  • Castres 17-32 Wasps [try] [yellow-card]
    PENALTY TRY! Ref also asks about a high tackle on Varndell from Sivivatu and it's a double blow for Castres - a penalty try is awarded and Sivivatu is in the sin-bin.
    12/7/2014 2:39:03 PM
  • Castres 17-32 Wasps [try]
    TRY! Still a little tetchy out there as Goode gets involved with some pushing and shoving. When we finally get back to the rugby, Goode chips a lovely little kick for Ben Jacobs who combines well with centre partner Alapati Leiua. Leiua gets the ball to Tagicakibau who is over. Thats the bonus point! A great try! Goode adds the extras

  • It's an absolutely huge game for us to host Leinster at The Stoop, I think it sold out ages ago, it's that type of game. We have an enormous amount of respect for Leinster and everything they have achieved in Europe before and what a great team they are. Sunday is going to be huge and these are the type of games you want to be playing in.

    12/7/2014 3:45:13 PM
  • Harlequins 6-6 Leinster
    Another scrum...and another penalty! But this time it's for Leinster! Clever work from mike ross to avoid Joe Marler and make Marler bore in! Gopperth cannot make it count though as he pulls it wide.

  • Half-time: Harlequins 9-9 Leinster

    12/7/2014 4:22:54 PM
  • Harlequins 9-12 Leinster [video-ref]
    A good break for Quins results in a penalty and Swiel kicks for the corner. Leinster steal the line out though - Quins somehow get it back and rumble on through Easter. the ball goes wide and hooker Ward has a go. After a few more phases Care finds Easter coming in at pace - the big No.8 stretches and scores...or has he. TMO time! 
    12/7/2014 4:29:27 PM
  • Harlequins 16-12 Leinster[try]
    TRY! yes he has! first try of the game and Swiel adds the two points.
