Harlequins kick off LV=Cup with London Irish win

Harlequins remained unbeaten this season in all competitions when they kicked off the Anglo Welsh LV=Cup with a 26-19 victory over London Irish at The Stoop.

A last-gasp try from Ollie Lindsay-Hague saw Harlequins claim victory deep
into regulation time.

The England Sevens flyer touched down in the 84th minute as Quins snatched
the spoils in a thrilling encounter.

Quins led 10-6 at half time thanks to an early try from Ben Urdapilleta, created
by fly-half Rory Clegg.

The home pivot extended the lead from the kicking tee after the break but Exiles
full-back Tom Homer pulled the visitors back into contention with few penalties
of his own.

David Sisi put Irish ahead with try from short range in the 73rd minute but
Lindsay-Hague’s late converted try sealed the win for Quins.
