      Overall a deserved win for Quins, but as Mforever says it's marred somewhat by the cheating, particularly the bench player interfering with the quick lineout - even if that did ameliorate slightly what should have been a YC for Fritz. Feck, if only Connacht could have won yesterday and at the stoop, this result would have them still right in the mix of this group!
      Tis but a scratch.

          An unbelievable 45-0, considering it was 3-0 for so long.

              In 2011, Quins have won at Thomond Park and Stade Ernest-Wallon in European competition. They won't be afraid to go anywhere if they make the quarters.

                The Toulouse Quins game sounds like it had it all! Are camp COS gonna be singing his praises bigstyle again or were Tou just a little complacent? Sorry I missed it now.

                  Great result for the compeition but bad for Munster. Would not like to be playing either ST (or Quins in a home quarter, which is more likely now. Those two and Leinster have to be the favourites now. Nobody will want to play us but that doesnt mean we are, or should be favourites to win the whole thing.

                    cowboy a bit complacent looking at the players they left on the bench...wouldn't take anything away from Quins... though...if Evans and mc`allister swapped jerseys it would have different result... m`callister was terrible.

                      Quins were great - deserved their win. Luke McAlister had a horrendous day off the tee, missed three kickable penalties in the first half, two that he could have thrown over – a couple of real sitters, in front of the sticks.

                      Toulouse would have been much better starting Poux, Nyanga and Picamoles ahead of Montes, Boulihou [who in fairness was not all that bad, but Nyanga has had a great season] and Sowerby, as well as Florian Fritz ahead of Yann David.

                      Fritz came on when David left the pitch injured and was absolutely first-rate, he just went buck wild and ran amok. The young Quins centre Hopper did a decent job containing him, because he really was on fire.

                      Mike Brown and Nick Evans were Quins' best players.

                        Planet Rugby's HEC team of the week includes two todgers (even though they were playing a weak team) two globetrotters (ditto) and a single turnip (ditto).

                        All that I can say is: pah!

                        Incidentally, I note that Rolland's red card for a cheating 'quins sub appears to have passed below the radar!

                        He should also have red carded the quins doctor for similar cheating.
