  • CONVERSION, HARLEQUINS, BOTICA! 47-8. Botica seals the win with an easy two-pointer! The referee blows the final whistle and Quins thoroughly deserve this win which secures their spot in the Heineken Cup quarter-finals as the Pool Three winners!

  • TRY, HARLEQUINS, BOTICA! 45-8. Despite their huge lead, Quins are still throwing the ball around with gay abandon. Monye goes close before Botica burrows his way over the try-line from close quarters!

  • CONVERSION, HARLEQUINS, BOTICA! 40-8. Ben Botica has taken over the kicking duties from Evans and adds the extras!

  • TRY, HARLEQUINS, LOWE! 38-8. George Lowe scores after gathering a grubber kick from Evans inside Connact's 22!

  • Quins are penalised for a scrum infringement and the visitors attack quickly through Vainikolo. He's kept in check though as Robshaw brings him to ground.

  • Quins are turning on the style by playing an open expansive game but lose possession when Maurie Fa'asavalu knocks on deep inside Connacht's half.

  • Quins are awarded a penalty when Connacht infringe at a ruck for the umpteenth time! Evans puts the ball into touch close to the halfway line.

  • Evans launches a box kick which bounces around inside Connacht's 22. James Loxton, who is on for O'Halloran, gathers and does well to run himself out of trouble despite Monye's attentions.

  • TRY, HARLEQUINS, MONYE! 33-8. Monye beats three defenders before crossing the whitewash to score the bonus-point try for the hosts!

  • YELLOW CARD, HARLEQUINS, MARLER! The Quins and England prop is sent off for an off-the-ball incident involving Ethienne Reynecke.

  • The visitors are trying desperately to get something from this game and are now running from all areas of the field. They don't seem to get anywhere as Quins' defence is well organised.

  • James Johnston breaks away from a ruck and tries to offload to George Lowe. The pass is a poor one and all Lowe can do is kick ahead. The ball rollos over Connacht's tryline where Griffin dots down.

  • TRY, HARLEQUINS, WILLIAMS! 28-3. From a scrum on Connacht's five-metre line, Quins create an overlap and Williams gets an easy run-in for his second try!

  • YELLOW CARD, CONNACHT, VAINIKOLO! Fetu'u Vainikolo is sent to the sin bin for a push on Monye! Connacht are down to 13 men!
