Harlequins end Saints home run

Battling Harlequins shocked Aviva Premiership leaders Northampton with a tremendous 16-13 win at Franklin's Gardens that ended the Saints unbeaten home record which stretched back to May last year.

Northampton looked sure-fire winners when they were 10-3 up at half time with the visitors facing the opening 10 minutes of the second half with John Andress and Nick Easter in the bin, but a try from England scrum-half Danny Care and a conversion and two penalties from Nick Evans saw Quins claim an unlikely win.

The Saints took the lead into the break after being awarded a penalty try and a penalty and conversion from Stephen Myler, while Shane Geraghty's late penalty was in vain.
