Harlequins edge Gloucester at the death

Harlequins came from behind and scored a late try to beat Gloucester 15-22 to earn their first Aviva Premiership victory at Kingholm since February 1999.

Second-half tries from Luke Wallace and Charlie Walker helped Harlequins defeat
Gloucester.

Trailing 10-12 at the break, the scores from the flanker and wing saw them pick
up the victory that lifts them up the standings ahead of Saturday.

Gloucester in fact led 0-12 at one point in the first-half as four penalties
from England international Billy Twelvetrees put the hosts in a good place.

But just before the half-hour mark a try from Quins number eight Nick Easter
set the visitors on the comeback trail and they didn’t look back, with Gloucester’s
only further points coming from the boot of replacement for Rob Cook, Aled Thomas.
