- Harlequins 28-24 Gloucester
- Harlequins seal playoff place after Gloucester had led 24-7
It is an understatement to say Harlequins do not always make life easy for themselves but another of their trademark comebacks, inspired by Joe Marchant, sealed the champions’ place in the playoffs and boosted their hopes of a return to Twickenham next month.
Take nothing away from Gloucester’s first-half performance – Harlequins were 17 points down at half-time because the visitors were superior in practically every department – but once they got on a roll and Danny Care and Marcus Smith started to play with the zip they so often do, the visitors capitulated. Harlequins scored three tries after the break, Gloucester failed to register a single point.
