Quins up to fourth

Harlequins leapfrogged Wasps to move into fourth place in the Aviva Premiership with a 17-10 victory in a fast-moving, fiercely-contested London derby watched by a sell-out 14,282 crowd.

Joe Marler, the 20-year-old prop called up to the England training camp as injury cover during the autumn internationals, full-back Mike Brown and current England number eight Nick Easter scored the tries which enabled Quins to lead 17-7 at the interval.

Richard Haughton touched down for Wasps in the first half, with Mark van Gisbergen adding the extras, before Dave Walder kicked a penalty midway through the second period.
