Highlights | Harlequins 19-26 Clermont Auvergne

Clermont were made to dig deep as they saw off Harlequins 26-19 to top Champions Cup Pool 3. The visitors made a quick start as a delightful attacking move was rounded off with a Camille Lopez kick wide to Peter Betham who had time to collect and dot down. Harlequins responded with some lovely quick passing from the hosts and it was Luke Northmore who went over to equalise after just six minutes. Camille Lopez and Parra would combine later to find Apisai Naqalevu who powered over out wide. Harlequins again replied with brute force from the hosts who took Clermont by surprise in the driving maul and it was Alex Dombrandt under a pile of Quins players. Brett Herron chipped and chased his own pass, and as the ball landed awkwardly for Lopez, Herron collected to score and landed the conversion to make it a seven-point game. The hosts piled on pressure in the latter stages but couldn’t force a final try over the line as Clermont clung on to win the match and secure Pool 3 qualification.
