Harlequins on top against Bath after scintillating scrap

Luke Northmore in action for Harlequins

Harlequins came out on top against Bath Rugby in a highly entertaining Pool 3 match that resulted in three tries apiece.

Bath were fastest out of the blocks, with Walker running in the first try after five minutes and Freddie Burns adding the extras.

But Quins hit back quickly, with James Chisholm crossing after some hefty movement in the pack, and Brett Herron converted to get the scores level on 12 minutes.

The visitors moved ahead by five points in the 17th minute with a fabulous try from Gabriel Ibitoye as Aaron Morris and Luke Northmore linked up to set him free.

Gabe Hamer-Webb’s impressive turn of pace in the last seconds of the first half drew his team level – and Burns’s subsequent conversion meant they went in at the break just ahead.

Of the fly halves, though, Herron began the second half with more chances, kicking a 47th-minute penalty and converting Alex Dombrandt’s 54th-minute try.

Jackson Willison’s run into the corner on 57 minutes was then converted by Burns to give Bath some hope.

Then Herron’s penalty eleven minutes from time extended the visitors’ lead further – and ultimately secured the 25-19 win.
