    Harlequins v Stade Francais

    I have just watched possibly the best 20 minutes of any neutral sporting event of the season. Stade 17-16 up into stoppage time: Quins have 29 (yes, 29) constant phases of play - three or four times coming up inches short of the tryline, crossing to and fro across the field, before Nick Evans hits a drop goal from fully 35 yards that creeps over by feet at most.

    Unbelievable drama.

    Something wrong with the Rugby thread?

    But yeah, fair play to Quins, the decision going to the TMO was pure theatre. Depressing how good Evans looks tho, really. He left NZ for The Stoop because he couldn't get a regular gig with the ABs.

    Interesting also to see another expensive league convert (Gasnier) dumped out on the wing.

    Harlequins

    Our Hangzhou rugby team is named after them, and our kit is basically a rip off of their second XV jersey, so officially supporting them.

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    In terms of the regular excitement of matches, the Heineken Cup is possibly the best sporting competition in the world. Very, very rarely does it disappoint, unlike its international or footballing equivalents. My personal favourite match was this absolute thriller, anyone remember it?

    It was showing on ESPN last night, I however had just seen the highlights. Saw Gasnier's drop ball, did he have a bad game overall?

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    Oi, Quins fans - mind if we do a straight swap of Nick Evans for Stephen Donald?
