On 11 August our 1st XV took on the Harlequins representative team in a thrilling encounter at Steele Park. We led for most of the first half, but by the half-time break the Harlequins were 12-10 up.

The Harlequins held that lead for most of the second half before we scored two quick converted tries to take a 24-12 lead. The Harlequins rallied late in the game to score their third try.

The final score was 24-17 to SHGC – an absolutely wonderful victory for our team against a quality opposition.
