  • FULL-TIME: HARLEQUINS 13-16 CLERMONT

  • But Easter is held up in the tackle, the maul is formed, and the whistle blown. Clermont scrape through with a character-building win. Quins so near but so far, and face a tough trip to the Scarlets to save their Heineken Cup dreams. A pulsating game here at The Stoop, thanks for joining us.

    80
  • Taken against the head! Quins now battering the away line with the clock red! This is astonishing!

    80
  • Dave Ward - outstanding in the loose - has thrown in not-straight. Twenty seconds left, Clermont scrum. So disappointing for the hosts, glum faces all round at The Stoop.

    80
  • Quins desperately looking for a decisive score, they have possession 25 metres out, and a penalty advantage to boot. Evans to the corner - a draw no good for their pool standings. Five metre lineout, the crowd are roaring their boys on. Can Quins respond?

    79
  • PENALTY, CLERMONT, JAMES! 13-16 No problems for the fly-half, Clermont take the lead. We have less than three minutes to go here.

    78
  • And it's a Clermont penalty! Straight in front of the posts, 25 metres out! Quins trying to force things inside their own half, but get isolated and penalised. Evans missed a near-identical kick moments earlier, can James convert?

    77
  • James' touchine conversion is wide of the mark, and things are all square with five minutes to play. Who will grab the winning score?

    75
  • TRY, CLERMONT, SIVIVATU! 13-13 Inches away, picking and driving for the line...and it's spread wide to Sivivatu who levels the scores! What a finish on the cards now, the scores are level!

    74
  • Clermont win a penalty and James punts down into the 22. Huge moments, these, as the away pack maul it forward.

    72
  • But Evans has missed - how crucial could that prove to be? Clermont remain within a score of Quins going into the final ten minutes.

    70
  • Quins penalty - obstruction again - and Evans kicks up to within 25 metres of the Clermont line. More possession and chances squandered for the visitors.

    69
  • Quins attack is stifled as Brown's offload goes into touch, and Clermont take the lineout quickly. Parra probes the box kick down into the home 22. Benson Stanley replaces skipper Rougerie

    67
  • The visitors putting phases together on the home 22, but penalised for obstruction as Lee blocks James.

    65
  • Buttin with a glorious break right from the drop-out, but his pass to Sivivatu is just too early for the winger to scoot home. Quins steal and Hopper slices into touch on the 22.

    63
  • Drifts wide. Quins 22m drop out.

    62
  • Penalty Clermont at the breakdown - it's a long way out, right on the edge of James' range from around fifty metres. He's going for goal, though.

    61
  • Possession changing hands here, Clermont now with a scrum on their own 22.

    59
  • Clermont now building phases in home territory, but Rougerie can't gather James' kick ahead. Scrum Quins 30 metres out.

    56
  • Smart probing crossfield kick sends Quins chasing back into their own 22. They'll have a lineout 15 out from their line.
