    Harlequins, a proper rugby club.

    As someone who criticized Saracens for unsporting behavior I want to say what a great rugby club Harlequins are. There was total respect for the penalty takers at all times, and great banter to be had. Thank you Quins for making it such a pleasant day .

    Appreciated the respect for kickers during the first half alright (I was going a bit too mental during the second half to notice!), and while their PA announcements for scores/replacements etc came across as very loud on the telly it wasn't the classless, non-stop intrusion on the occasion that Sarries inflicted on the sport. Credit where it's due to Quins.
    Tis but a scratch.

      Yeah big respect to the Quins fans - very nice, knowledgable people. Dignified in defeat and wished us all the best in the semi - classy people

        Completely agree with all of these sentiments. Thought also that being so near the pitch was fantastic, especially for the lap-of-honour. Thanks 'quins. Wishing you all well for the rest of the season - and retain the premiership.

          Absolutely agree. None of that piped music rubbish, great ground, great fans, cracking atmosphere. One of the most enjoyable away trips I've been on. Saracens could learn a thing or two from them.

              Absolutely. He gave great credit to Munster and POC. A true gent.
              I know something that will blow your minds. I can't tell you and I can't tell you why I can't tell you. You'll know soon and then I'll be confirmed right.

                Of course, Conor's Dad, Jerome, won 3 All Ireland medals in the fifties with Kerry.

                      Met a good friend of yours, Quin Kong. Good guy, as were all the Quins supporters I met. Great (home ) Club.

                        great day all round, much more enjoyable than the last time I was over in the Stoop - was that around 2003 or so, when we played Quins in Twickenham? Anyway, lovely memories, a crowd of very nice people indeed. And having the space around to have the food, bars etc afterwards made for lovely mingling etc

                              Just thought I'd add my voice to this - fantastic ground, fantastic fans and were a pleasure to visit. Would be happy to go back. Thanks Quins for a great occasion and the respect you afforded your visitors and their team
