Danny Care, Louis Lynagh, and Tyrone Green of Harlequins found themselves in the sin-bin during intense moments, but this did not deter their team spirit. Marcus Smith‘s exceptional cross-field kick set the tone early on, finding Northmore for a remarkable try within just two minutes.

Northampton’s Ollie Sleightholme and Tom Litchfield tried to swing the momentum in their team’s favor, but Harlequins maintained their lead with classy plays. Despite facing setbacks, including multiple yellow cards, Harlequins stood firm and dominated the encounter.

The match witnessed thrilling back-and-forth action, with standout moments from players such as Stephan Lewies, Cadan Murley, and James Ramm. As the clock ticked down, Harlequins showcased their determination, ultimately securing a bonus-point win that keeps them in contention for a playoff spot.
