Just had first scrum to Newcastle. Harlequins very solid and unmoving.

Had a lineout on Newcastle 5m line. Did our usual "couldn't punch a hole in a wet paper bag" offence, lost the ball and now it's back near our 22. Chisolm earns us a scrum.

Trying to run out of our own 22. Making a pig's ear of the attempt. Finally cleared.

Quick kick through from Newcastle, Visser ends up having to take the ball over the try line. 5m scrum Newcastle.

H 21 tackles, N 7! Gonova spills the ball and Harlequins kick it out by the 22. Not safe yet

Lovely attack by Newcastle. The no 12 ran through about 4/5 of our men. Luke Pierce asks if it was held up over the line. Good attempt by their no 5 Witty. No conclusive view for TMO. Scrum 5. Harlequins play get out of jail card!

Bothma finds a rugby ball doesn't always bounce straight. Knocks on on Harlequins 22. Another Harlequins restart wasted.

Goneva goes over in the other wing. Simple try, defence nowhere. 3 people watching the man 1 off from Goneva - no-one watching him.

Newcastle 8 Harlequins 0

And we're lucky to have got the zero!

Harum Scarum stuff. We lose possession, they lose possession. We're still stuck in our half. Lucky kick from Brown gets lineout inside Newcastle 22. Newcastle gather OK. Sinckler pinged for slapping ball in the maul. So another stupid penalty.

Newcastle just threw the ball to an unmarked Green. If he hadn't dropped it he might have been in there. Where the hell is the top four inches?

So scrum about half way into the Harlequins half. 10 minutes to go. Harlequins put in. We try and run it out. Fortunate their 5 was in the way of getting the ball out a maul. Our lineout on Newcastle 22

Lineout, maul, tackle. Bothma runs with it, caught in possession, holding on. Penalty Newcastle. that actually took longer than I expected to screw up!

45 seconds left. Newcastle maul. Harlequins held it up so our scrum. Last play of first half. Scrum penalty organised by the Robshaws. Lineout in Newcastle half just by 10m line. Still no penetration. Knock on

Newcastle 11 Harlequins a very lucky nil.

I donít think itís about not caring, it just think our confidence is rock bottom our DoR and coaches are not those that inspire or build confidence. That is a good Quins team on the pitch, they just are not playing well and that is down to leadership and coaching.

Just seen the Gonova try again, Visser makes a total balls up of tackling him, Smith just pushes him as he goes past. As I say, tissue paper defence.

We have missed 30% of our tackles in that 1st half which is pretty disgraceful for a professional club.
