Any chance that this might go ahead? Hopes and expectations not high.

Hmm Bristol United played against Leinster in the B+I cup on Friday night (losing 50:15). I doubt they will be up for a trip to The Stoop - but good on them if they are...

The good news is that we have Winston Stanley on the bench if things start to go wrong.
I was hoping that Care and Robshaw would be starting so that they could get a few minutes of game time in prep for Saturday.
I was really hoping that we would see Saili tonight to get some game time.
Typically, this is the best a-game to go to (i.e. the one just before Xmas) as all of the players are usually there as they usually go for food afterwards.

Quins Facebook Page

Harlequins made it four A League wins on the spin as they scored 11 tries in a 73-14 rout of Bristol United at The Stoop.

A Josh Ibuanokpe double, plus scores from Max Coyle and guest Dylan Flashman, gave Quins a first half try bonus point as they went into the break ahead 26-14.

The Londoners scored seven more in the second spell as Gabriel Ibitoye picked up an impressive brace while Cadan Murley, Ian Prior, Ross Chisholm, Mike Mayhew and guest Conrad Burne all joined in on the fun. Quins romping home 73-14 to round out the first block of A League pool fixtures.

Earlier, Harlequins arrived at The Stoop for their first A League match since late October when they beat Saracens Storm at Esher RFC. In that match Josh Ibuanokpe was the star of the show as he scored two tries in the come-from-behind win, and the young prop scored a brace again. His converted tries both coming from close range as he powered over in the 8th and 14th minute to bookend a Jordon Limey score for the visitors.

Harlequins' third came from further out after Jono Kitto chipped the defence and an unlucky bounce saw Bristol’s defence exposed as guest player Dylan Flashman was on hand to collect and score for Quins. Ian Prior remained perfect from the tee as Harlequins leapt out to a 21-7 lead with less than a quarter of the match played.

Only five minutes later and Tom Williams’ men had their bonus point with a stunning touchdown. Cadan Murley breaking excellently down the right wing before popping an inside ball to fellow Academy prospect Max Coyle to race over.

Before the half Bristol pulled one back when Alex Giltrow charged over from close but Quins headed into the sheds with a deserved 26-14 lead.

Harlequins came out hot in the second half with two sensational runs to get their next two scores. First it was prop Cameron Holenstein who rumbled 40 metres down field dispatching all in sight, as his side set up Ian Prior to dive over for five of his 21 points on the evening.

Only a few minutes later and Gabriel Ibitoye went even further (and a lot faster) when he intercepted deep in his own half and had the gas to go in under the sticks for a 40-14 lead.

The tries kept coming for Quins as Cadan Murley latched on to a Prior cross field kick before stepping his man to score in the 53rd minute.

Ten minutes later, Ibitoye had a brace of his own following a short inside ball that saw him glide in stylishly under the sticks to bring up the 50 for Harlequins.

The impressive display was capped off in the final ten minutes by guest Conrad Burne, veteran Ross Chisholm and loanee Mike Mayhew who all ran in a late tries as Quins scored 11 tries, and eight conversions, in the 73-14 walloping.

Harlequins return to A League action in the New Year with Premiership Rugby set to confirm the next block of fixtures later this week. Harlequins sit second in the Southern Conference so qualify for the second round as one of the top five placed teams.

Their two tries came early in the game from pick and drive in the red zone. We were unable to stop them there. Fortunately they never really got back there after that.

Although pretty chilly, it was an enjoyable night.
The first half was entertaining. The first few minutes of the second half unfortunately put the game away.
I was impressed by Cadan Murley and Cheeseman at centres. Ibitoye was a real handful. I also think that Piper had a good game.
But, basically, the game was won by our two props. Ibuanokpe and He-Man.

- - - but, the star of the night had to be Ian Prior. His kicking routine is something to behold.

I just checked out Flashman on Wikipedia and found this interesting note - "Flashman's expulsion from Rugby School for drunkenness leads him to join the British Army."

and

"expert cricket-bowler, but only through hard effort (he needed sporting credit at Rugby School, and feared to play rugby football)"

Of the starting side 6 of the starting line up aren't, and Old Colstonians are Gloucester 1 league (not even regional level), and 4 of the bench, as the "A" side played Leinster as we've given up on the B&I cup.

I can see a Tom Williams being head coach in years to come (and maybe a DOR after that). He seems to be doing a good job with the a-league and has experience coaching England U20.

Aren't the A team coached by the senior coaching staff as part of the wider squad? A lot of those players have played first team and would be a part of the main squad during the day which would make Mapletoft and Kingston the geniuses behind it.

Or is it the match day inspiration of Tom Williams that is the difference?

Since JK is DoR, and ultimately responsible for everything that happens on the pitch, he should be commended on a fine win and a great performance.

Except many on here would never consider that.

I think that the difference is - the tactics/half time talks/timings of the subs/etc is the responsibility of Williams whereas in a normal game, all these are up to Mapletoft.

For what it's worth that's not my interpretation of this thread.

I see it as a few people taking the Michael out of the anti JK brigade who jump on anything negative and twist it to be JKs fault.

It definitely feels to me to be more tongue in cheek than some of the the anti-rants.

Just my interpretation though so appreciate that that will be different to that of others.

Nope I wouldn't. Which is why I didn't say anything of the sort.

You, on the other hand, have specifically said that it should be something that is counted in JK's favour.

Which is what I was incredulous at. And still am.
