Harlequins stay top despite gritty Grenoble effort

Cadan Murley of Harlequins collects the ball on his way to scoring a try in Round 5

Harlequins clinched their third win in Pool 5 of the European Rugby Challenge Cup with a five-try showing to see off plucky Grenoble 38-20 at The Stoop.

They looked like running away with matters when they led 28-5 just past the half-hour mark but Grenoble never gave in and reduced the deficit to 28-20 in the second half before Harlequins clinched it.

Scrum-half Danny Care had set the home side on their way when he raced away to score after 12 minutes and full-back Mike Brown added a second try four minutes later.

Winger Cadan Murley and hooker Max Crumpton also went over for tries before the break but Grenoble kept in contention.

Full-back Gervais Cordin scored a brace for the visitors to add to the opening try of the game by forward Antonin Berruyer after only three minutes.

Fly-half Ben Lucas added a second half penalty to an earlier conversion and the outcome was back in the balance at 28-20 before Harlequins strong finish.

Replacement James Lang eased home concern with a penalty 15 minutes from time and then converted after number eight Alex Dombrandt plunged over at the death to seal the points.

Quins were also indebted to the boot of fly-half Marcus Smith who improved all his side first half tries.

Harlequins will aim to clinch top spot at Agen next Friday evening while Grenoble have home advantage against Benetton.
