Orange Opta NEC Harlequins Player of the Month - October 2002
1 November 2002 10:03am
The inspiration behind NEC Harlequins three victories in the month of October, young scrum half Nick Duncombe is the clubs Orange Opta Player of the Month.
Creating one try and scoring another in the 47-23 victory over Newcastle Falcons (5th October 2002) at the Stoop in round six of the Zurich Premiership, Duncombe also managed a brace of tries in the comfortable win away at Caerphilly in the Parker Pen Challenge Cup.
Always a tactical live-wire, the promising scrum half was involved with the majority of Quins attacking play during October and did not miss any tackles in the match against the Falcons.
Harlequins fan Ed Atkin won the Etihad Airways 'Up and Under' competition at the Northampton Saints game. As a result, he and a friend have won a holiday to Abu Dhabi courtesy of Etihad Airways and the Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority.
