Congratulations to Tom Williams who has been voted the February's Etihad Player of the Month by Quins fans, and who will receive a case of champagne for his endeavours.
The flying winger was in the thick of the action throughout February which saw Quins secure two crucial league victories to raise their position in the Guinness Premiership.
Williams played a vital role in the away fixture against London Irish providing a solid defence against his opposite number and showing strong attacking capabilities. The game was a close contest and Quins came away victorious and deserved winners 9 - 14.
Back at the Stoop for the match against Gloucester and Williams was in fine form once again. It was another close contest against the League leaders and Williams left it to the final few minutes to give Quins fans the victory they craved. With less than two minutes remaining on the clock, Tom Williams saw a gap in front of the posts and squeezed past the Gloucester defence to touch down. The try was awarded by the video referee sending the Quins fans into wild celebrations.
