    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.

    Jimmy Gopperth kicks off for Leinster, Quins cannot take it and Leinster regather the ball - knock on though and a scrum to Quins.

    Harlequins 0-0 Leinster
    Leinster have the advantage and kearney tries for the drop goal but it is wide. 
    12/7/2014 3:18:56 PM
    Harlequins 0-3 Leinster [penalty-rugby]
    Eoin Reddan off for a head assessment as Ian Madigan steps up and gives Leinster a three point lead.

    Gopperth makes another great break for Leinster but poor passing stops their attack. 
    12/7/2014 3:55:26 PM
    Harlequins 9-9 Leinster [penalty-rugby]
    Referee playing advantage as Leinster are really on the attack  in the quins 22. Quins concede another penalty and Ian Madigan steps up  - he looks like he has pulled it but the ball curls back in. 
    12/7/2014 3:59:08 PM
    Half-time: Harlequins 9-9 Leinster
    All square at the break, Quins will be gutted to have lost Nick Evans, Can Swiel step up and manage this game in the second half? 
    12/7/2014 4:00:44 PM
    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
