Harlequins confirmed today (23rd May) that Chris Brooker is leaving the club to join Worcester Warriors.
Dreadful weather caused for a hard fought game as torrential rain overnight and swirling winds on the day meant that both teams were going to have to tough out a win.
Ealing took control of the game in the first half and started the scoring when a clever switch of play to make a pinpoint kick to be collected and headed over the line for a try. Only a penalty later on in the half made for the score to be 0-8 at half time.
The second half saw Ealing miss another penalty, but this time the weather was not to blame. Ealing did however kick off the scoring again with a beautifully weighted grubber kick saw the ball picked up and sent over the line again.
Ealing put their feet up and allowed Worthing to come back and saw them break free and touch down for their first five points. Worthing thought they had scored five minutes later, but to Worthing's disappointment the referee called it back for a scrum. After this wobble, Ealing composed themselves to see out the remainder of the game adding another penalty and winning comfortably 5-18.
