Quins maintain perfect start
Harlequins, the reigning champions, returned to the Premiership summit with a comprehensive 37-11 triumph over Sale at The Stoop yesterday.Seventeen points came from the boot of Nick Evans, while Ugo Monye, Jordan Turner-Hall, George Robson, and Mike Brown ran in tries to continue Quins' perfect start to the season, with a third successive bonus-point win.
At Sixways, it took a dramatic penalty from Gloucester substitute Freddie Burns six minutes into injury time to deny Worcester their first Premiership win of the season, the match ending in a 16-16 draw.
Andy Goode looked to have secured victory for the Warriors just two minutes earlier with a penalty after Gloucester's skipper, Jim Hamilton, had pushed Worcester lock James Percival. But Burns scored with the final kick of the game.
In the Rugby Championship, Australia needed late tries from Pat McCabe and Digby Ioane to overturn a 13-point deficit and edge out Argentina 23-19 at Skilled Park in Queensland.
The Wallabies head coach, Robbie Deans, was quick to offer praise for the beaten Pumas, who are still looking for their first victory in the tournament. "They are looking to establish themselves in the competition and they've done that, they've earned respect," he said.
New Zealand are closing in on the Championship after defeating South Africa 21-11 at Dunedin.
The victory for the unbeaten All Blacks leaves the Springboks having to win their final two games with bonus points and hope New Zealand lose both of their remaining games to give them any chance of taking the title.
