Saturday 24th January NEC Harlequins travelled to Gloucester. This fixture is always going to be a tough one but with the loss of five players between the end of training Thursday and the game Saturday only emphasised the task ahead. Quins started with a real sprit about the team and took the game to Gloucester. Luke Cousins getting Quins ahead to two early penalties. Gloucester's backs always looked dangerous and only some excellent defence kept them out. Once again Tom Street leading the way with some great tackles and often coming away with the ball. Gloucester managed to finally score just before half time going into the second half with a slender 6-7 lead.<br />The second half continued as the first for the first quarter with Gloucester threatening the Quins line but the young Quins team holding them out.<br />Unfortunately Glocester ran in an interception try from the half way line which lifted their game and the Quins heads dropped. In the last 20 mins Gloucester managed to run in another three tries leaving an undeserved scoreline of 33-6.<br />A disappointing second loss in two weeks for the U19's who will be keen to get back to winning ways next week again away at Moseley.
