Ahead of their European Rugby Challenge Cup quarter-final on March 30, Harlequins host Worcester Warriors in the Gallagher Premiership this weekend. Here we look back at some of their Challenge Cup highlights.
2004: Harlequins 27 Montferrand 26
In one of the greatest Challenge Cup finals ever, Harlequins snatched victory from the jaws of defeat thanks to an injury-time try from replacement Simon Keogh.
Montferrand, now known as ASM Clermont Auvergne, led for most of the final at Reading’s Madejski Stadium after superb tries from Olivier Azam and Pierre Mignoni.
But with Harlequins piling pressure on the French side’s line, Ugo Monye passed inside to Keogh, who battled his way over at the posts for their second try. The crucial conversion was landed by Andy Dunne in the last play of the match.
2008: Worcester Warriors 31 Newcastle Falcons 16
Worcester produced one of their best European displays to defeat Newcastle and reach their first Challenge Cup final.
Tries from Marcel Garvey, Tom Wood and Sam Tuitupou (2) were enough to seal a spot in the final, despite eight points from the boot of Falcons fly-half Jonny Wilkinson.
However, the Warriors lost 24-16 in the final to Bath Rugby at Kingsholm Stadium.
2009: Worcester Warriors 29 Brive 18
A year after their run to the Challenge Cup final, Worcester reached the last four after a convincing victory over Brive at Sixways Stadium.
Marcel Garvey was again at the heart of the Worcester attack, scoring tries either side of half-time to secure what was only their third semi-final appearance in the competition.
They were beaten by French opposition in the semi-final, though, as Bourgoin emerged 22-11 victors, with 14 points from scrum-half Morgan Parra.
2011: Harlequins 19 Stade Français Paris 18
Harlequins became the first three-time winners of the Challenge Cup when they conjured another last-gasp triumph, this time against Stade Français Paris at the Cardiff City Stadium.
The 2001 and 2004 winners were six points down with seven minutes remaining when Joe Marler and Danny Care teamed up to provide Gonzalo Camacho with a try in the corner.
Fly-half Nick Evans kept a cool head to slot the conversion from the right-hand touchline in what turned out to be the decisive play of the match.
