WORCESTER Warriors' Anglo-Welsh Cup hopes took a major dent after a 28-22 defeat against Harlequins yesterday.

Here are our player ratings but who was your man of the match?

7 Howard – A decent attacking display from Howard who looked much happier at full-back than on the wing.

7 Heem – Capped his comeback with a try and made several trademark runs.

7 Olivier – Opened the scoring and would probably have sewn up the match had he held on to a try-scoring pass when Warriors were leading 14-0.

8 Willison – Always looks threatening next to Olivier and was industrious throughout.

6 Slowik – The debutant would have surprised many with his pace.

6 Mills – A mixed bag for the fly-half who was superb in the opening 20 minutes but threw an intercept pass as Quins hit back.

7 Baldwin – Was at the heart of Warriors’ best attacking moves in the first half.

6 Leleimalefaga – The loosehead scrummages solidly but doesn’t have the ball skills of Val Rapava Ruskin.

7 Taufete’e – The hooker grabbed his maiden try and is developing into a major asset for Warriors. Has headed back to the USA on paternity leave.

6 Schonert – Had a fitness test at half-time and didn’t reappear for the second period.

7 Cavubati – The lock’s best showing of the season which included a deft off-the-ground pass to Olivier for Warriors’ opening try.

8 Spencer – Strong in the line-out and worked hard with the ball in hand. Warriors’ man of the match.

6 Fa’osiliva – Took a bang on the head in the first half and failed an injury assessment.

7 Lewis – The Welsh-born scavenger continues to catch the eye with his work-rate. Made a try-saving tackle on former Warrior Charlie Mulchrone.

6 Dowson – Started poorly by spilling a couple of early passes before working his way into the match.
