With thanks to Blood and Mud for the link, here are the closing minutes of Harlequins vs Stade Francais. If you haven’t seen this yet, watch the video before clicking ‘Read More’ to avoid the spoilers.

Superb effort from the Quinn forwards to retain possession for 29 phases. Nuck Ivans looks dangerous every time he shapes to drop-goal, my only criticism is how long it takes them to spread it wide with a 5-2 overlap, and when they eventually do go to the backline they only go two passes and run it up allowing the defence line to scatter.

Great defence from the flouro frogs too, they must have been hella tired and to only give away one advantage in that period showed some solid discipline.

A Waratahs apologist and rib-eye steak enthusiast, he is often found working behind the scenes keeping the G&GR juggernaut afloat.
