What Are Our Chances?
Prior to the Gloucester game Harlequins were riding a five-match Premiership winning run and though sitting third behind Exeter and Saracens, Quins were in a strong position to secure a play-off place with just six games of the regular season to go.
Life After Diprose
Last week Harlequins announced that their long-serving Academy and Global Development Director Tony Dirpose would be leaving the club when his contract expires at the end of this season, having been at Quins either as a player or a coach for the last 18 years.
Marcus Looks To Japan
Quins fly-half Marcus Smith may have been included as an apprentice in recent England training squads, but the precocious 19-year-old is already aiming much higher as he looks to fast-track his dream of playing for the senior side.
Warning From Mike Brown
Mike Brown made history earlier this month, becoming the most-capped Harlequins player of all time after notching the 308th appearance of his Quins career, surpassing Graham Murray, who on 307 had held the record for 46 years.
Could Christian Wade really succeed in the NFL?
Christian Wade, the wing renowned for his blistering pace, acceleration and agility, has scored 82 tries for Wasps since breaking into the club’s senior side in 2011, making him the third-most prolific try-scorer in Premiership history ..
Warriors vs Harlequins: Another Dire Performance
This was always going to be a difficult game to navigate with it being Warriors last home game of the season with them needing a couple of points to be absolutely sure of not being relegated. If that wasn`t enough it was the 200th appearance for long serving fullback Chris Pennell and the last game ever for their captain Donncha O`Callaghan so everyone was pretty fired up. Not for the first time this season it was performance and commitment that the travelling supporters were looking for.
Need a report here
I need a supply of about one item per month for the front page. It can be anything rugby/Harlequins related. Without that, as you see, the message board grinds to a halt!
Harlequins v London Irish, Jesters or Clowns?
It is fair to say that there probably wasn't one Quins supporter who expected a win by the visitors despite the very poor form of the home side this season. A beautiful spring afternoon, and on paper at least, a strong Quins side despite perhaps a question over the strength in the second row. Worryingly Quins are the worst performing team so far during 2018 so we should expect a close game. For me, although you always want to see your team record a win, the day was all about performance, something that has been sadly lacking for some time now.
Saracens vs Harlequins, So Near Yet So Far Away
I have to admit that despite volunteering to write up the report for this fixture, after enduring probably my worst day ever at a rugby match, I really couldn't be bothered until by Wednesday I could just about think about game objectively. I usually get over a bad day out within an hour or so but I think it must be the cumulative effect of this terrible season coupled with yet another big match experience.
Player Survey: Saracens vs Harlequins
Apologies for time taken to produce this. Somewhere between becoming a grandfather for the first time, having to miss going to the actual game and a turgid game with few redeeming features, I've been left feeling somewhat uninspired, I'm afraid to say. Still, nil desperandum, another game against Irish soon and in the meantime put in your scores for the game.
