The game got off to a quick start, with Harlequins scoring a try following a blocked kick in 26 seconds. However, within ten minutes, Saracens took the lead and did not look back; they built a lead and kept the scoreboard ticking, making Harlequins pay for ill-discipline. The second half was a generally flat affair, although there was a scuffle following a tip tackle by Ashton ten minutes from time. Despite being a man down, Sarries managed to score a couple of tries in the last ten minutes, giving the scoreline a gloss. Saracens fully deserved their victory today in front of a world-record crowd for a club game at Wembley.
