Premiership Champions Harlequins secured a comfortable 21-12 home victory in the Anglo Welsh LV=Cup at The Stoop on Friday evening.

Five penalties from Ben Botica and two from Louis Grimoldby were enough for Harlequins to see off Bath at the Stoop.

In a try-less encounter, Stephen Donald scored three penalties and Tom Heathcote one of his own as Bath kept in touch.

However the visitors slipped further away after Grimoldby's two kicks stretched the lead and handed Quins their second victory in the competition.
