7 Shillcock – coming in for Pennell, the full back’s fumble led to Quins’ second try but his big left boot came in very handy and took his try well.

7 Nanai – improving with every game as he looked a threat from the first whistle. He showed plenty of purpose in possession, racking up more metres than anyone else.

8 Venter – making his first start of the season the South African ran hard all game, proving a handful for Quins’ defence, and stood firm defensively.

7 Beck – not quite as effective as Venter with ball in hand but linked up well with his midfield colleague as the duo kept pounding away.

7 Fidow – an impressive debut from the Samoan who chased everything, causing Quins’ back three problems, and was willing to come off his wing in search of the ball.

8 Lance – produced a brilliant performance in the absence of Weir as he landed five out of his six kicks at goal including a crucial touchline conversion.

9 HEANEY – remained calm and composed in torrid conditions with his assured presence at the base giving Warriors a strong platform in attack and assisted for Shillcock’s score. My man of the match.

7 Waller – was steady at scrum-time, got stuck in at the breakdown and made some hard yards when he got hold of the ball.

8 Annett – aside from one errant lineout the hooker was solid at the set-piece and gave Warriors momentum, making an impressive 17 carries.

7 Palframan – taking Carey’s place in the side the tighthead prop anchored the Warriors scrum which held up superbly and did not do a lot wrong.

8 Bresler – was a real workhorse from start to finish, making a series of tackles to keep Quins at bay and collected a lineout steal.

7 Kitchener – his missed tackle led to Dombardt’s try but gave Warriors front foot ball with several surges and ran the lineout well.

7 Hill – got through a lot of work as he was one of Warriors’ chief carriers, but made a couple of handling errors and missed a few tackles.

8 Lewis – showed no signs of the injury that forced him off last week as the flanker put his head where it hurts in a tireless defensive display.

8 du Preez – was a focal point of Warriors’ attack, clattering forward at every opportunity and did not give away an inch in defence, putting in some crunching tackles.
