  • Harlequins 28 Gloucester Rugby 25

  • Botica panics and belts the ball into touch. Harlequins back on top, boos for Wayne Barnes and a thriller of a game.

  • TRY, GLOUCESTER, TWELVETREES! 28-25. Penalty to Gloucester and Robson taps and goes; passing wide to the left as they hunt to get back in the game. Great break down the left, the ball goes wide right and it's a try! Length of the field, superb from the visitors.

  • Another penalty - not against the Gloucester front row but scrum-half Dan Robson who is offside. Scrum again...

  • Harlequins scrum now grinding Gloucester down. Two free kicks and now a penalty. Nick Easter wants one thing and one thing only.

  • SIN-BIN, GLOUCESTER, MORGAN! England number eight Ben Morgan takes a yellow card as a result of the penalty.

  • Fa'asavalu finds space down the left and tears towards the try line. Quins handing keeps the move going and now they take the scrum right in front looking for the bonus point. Exceptional handling from Hopper.

  • PENALTY, HARLEQUINS, EVANS! 28-18. Penalty for Harlequins at the scrum right in front and Evans taps it over, taking Gloucester out of losing bonus point range.

  • Nick Wood loses possession and Tom Williams hacks on looking for the score. The offload falls out of reach for Nick Evans but Gloucester knock on and Harlequins have the scrum.

  • Quins go for the lineout and win the ball, but are pinged for obstruction and denied the bonus point score. Gloucester clear.

  • The ball goes wide right to an unmarked Luke Wallace, but the pass is just too high and Harlequins come back for the penalty.

  • Easter burrows forward, Harlequins chewing up the ground and Mark Lambert rampages towards the line. James Johnston goes for the line but falls just short. Penalty advantage.

  • Tindall steps Botica and gets into the Harlequins 22. Tom Savage driven back and the ball is lost, Harlequins keeping the ball in hand.

  • Frenetic defence from Gloucester forces the turnover. They have harried Harlequins all afternoon on the ground and it's paid off. Gareth Evans on for Gloucester as a blood replacement for Ben Morgan.

  • PENALTY, GLOUCESTER, BURNS! 25-18. Harlequins attacking from deep in their own half and Burns gets a shot at goal. Through it goes and the gap closes back to seven.

  • PENALTY, HARLEQUINS, EVANS! 25-15. No problems that time as Evans stretches the lead to ten points.

  • Gloucester back to a full compliment of 15 players but Harlequins win the penalty at the scrum on the 40m line. Redemption shot for Evans.

  • Easter stranded up in the air and Gloucester win the penalty. Evans however misses a sitter. A turning point?

  • Harlequins offloading game starting to click and the metres are rising. Mike Brown has the ball ripped from his hands outside the 22 by Huia Edmonds and Jimmy Cowan clears. However the ball came back inside the 22, meaning Cowan's kick was straight off. Quins lineout on the 22.

  • Gloucester bring on Nick Wood and win the scrum. Cowan on top in his slugging match with Dickson and the visitors clear after sustained pressure.
