Champions Cup - Live!

All the action from around the grounds as Round Three of the European Rugby Champions Cup continues.

  • Harlequins 16-12 Leinster
    Wallace pounces on a loose ball at the scrum and is off, he could have passed to yarde but goes to ground. A long pass from Care to George Lowe who looks for Hooper coming in at pace...but the ref says the pass was forward. hopper not happy. 
    12/7/2014 4:35:55 PM
  • Harlequins 21-12 Leinster [try]
    TRY! Wow! Leinster got something going there and were looking very dangerous as they moved into Quins 22. Kearney screaming for the ball and Leinster oblige...but Quins winger Aseli Tikoirotuma reads it perfectly, he intercepts it and races away to score! Swiel cannot add the extra two points. 
    12/7/2014 4:38:29 PM
  • Harlequins 21-12 Leinster
    Zane Kirchner takes  a Mike Brown kick and looks to run it back at Quins. He looks up to see Nick Easter bearing down on him - you would expect the former bok fullback to avoid the ageing warrior...but Easter is all over him. Great work from the Quins No.8. 
    12/7/2014 4:41:54 PM
  • Harlequins 21-12 Leinster
    Leinster really trying to attack here through Heaslip and Kearney - who could possibly have passed to Kirchner roaring up on the inside - Perhaps he's a bit nervous after his passing to Fanning in the first half. They do win a penalty though. Leinster go for the corner. 
    12/7/2014 4:44:54 PM
  • Harlequins 21-15 Leinster [penalty-rugby]
    Joe Marler is penalised for slowing the ball down - it's right in front of the posts and Madigan closes the gap. 
    12/7/2014 4:46:44 PM
  • Harlequins 21-15 Leinster
    Quins now on the attack, but they are penalised for obstruction - Mike Brown not impressed with that at all. Leinster kick for the corner. 
    12/7/2014 4:48:30 PM
  • Harlequins 21-18 Leinster [penalty-rugby]
    From the lineout Leinster attack and spin the ball wide, Kearney finally gets a pass off to fanning who cuts back inside...and straight into his own man. However their was obstruction with the jumper at the lineout and Madigan makes it a three point game! 
    12/7/2014 4:50:18 PM
  • Harlequins 21-18 Leinster
    We are into the final ten minutes, Brown runs back a massive Kearney kick and good work from Kane Douglas wins the ball back for Leinster. 
    12/7/2014 4:51:56 PM
  • Harlequins 21-18 Leinster
    Lineout to Quins - George Robson is taken out by Kane Douglas and the ref blows him out for it. Swiel kicks for the corner. 
    12/7/2014 4:53:59 PM
  • Harlequins 21-18 Leinster{video-ref]
    Good carrying from Quins sets up Care for a drop-goal. Not sure if it went over the posts though...
    12/7/2014 4:56:01 PM
  • Harlequins 24-18 Leinster
    YES it did! useful three points for Harlequins 
    12/7/2014 4:56:33 PM
  • Harlequins 24-18 Leinster
    Good defence from Harlequins who stop a Leinster attack and win the scrum. 
    12/7/2014 4:57:46 PM
  • Harlequins 24-18 Leinster
    Nick Easter takes responsibility at the back of the scrum and bullocks his way upfield, finally he is brought down to ground. Care dinks for Yarde to chase but it's a penalty for Quins as Leinster are pinged for hands in the ruck. Swiel kicks down field. 
    12/7/2014 5:01:12 PM
  • Harlequins 24-18 Leinster
    Quins just using their forwards to drive the ball into contact as the clock runs down...and it's all over. A big win for Harlequins but Leinster have got an all-important losing bonus point. 
    12/7/2014 5:03:01 PM
  • [full-time] Harlequins 24-18 Leinster 
    12/7/2014 5:04:56 PM
  • It's fantastic to win your games at home but it is going to be another war next week with the quality that Leinster have on show

      Nick Easter already turning his thoughts to next week's game at Leinster

    12/7/2014 5:53:19 PM
  • Leicester 13-0 Toulon [try]
    Tait's kick into Toulon's 22 looks like Mitchell has it covered, however he makes total mess of it, lets it roll and Tom Youngs pounces, passes to Brad Thorn who scores! Williams converts. What a start for the Tigers! 
    12/7/2014 5:55:43 PM

    12/7/2014 6:04:57 PM
