London Welsh 26, Harlequins 31

A STIRRING second-half fightback earned London Welsh a fine losing bonus point at the Kassam Stadium today.

Aviva Premiership champions Harlequins dominated the first half to lead 21-6.

But Welsh made a real go of it after the break and are now ten points clear of the relegation zone, while Quins went back to the top.

Scrum half Danny Care, centre George Lowe, flanker Chris Robshaw and fly half Nick Evans went over for Quins, with Evans kicking 11 points.

Wing Nick Scott and flanker Ed Jackson scored for Welsh, with their metronomic fly half Gordon Ross landing six kicks out of six.
