Quins extend winning run at Wasps

Full-back Mike Brown scored the pick of the tries as Harlequins survived a concerted fightback by Wasps to secure a 22-16 win - their 10th successive Aviva Premiership victory.

Brown crossed 10 minutes after the break in between centre Matt Hopper's seventh-minute touchdown and flanker Luke Wallace's score as the leaders roared into a 22-6 lead with 57 minutes played at Adams Park.

But Hopper's departure for the sin-bin saw Hugo Southwell claim a first try and when Tom Varndell followed suit nine minutes from time, the game was back in the balance. However, stand-off Nick Robinson twice hit a post as he failed to add to his six points, and opposite number Nick Evans' single penalty and two conversions saw Quins home.
