Leicester replied with a try by Van Poortvliet but Andre Esterhuizen try gave Quins a lead of 30-17 at the break.

A great first half ensured another win for Quins as they display yet again some great attacking play. Flyhallf Smith was again brilliant for them and his game management was brilliant.

Leicester had their chances in the second half but just could not convert the possession into points.

This was the third straight win for Quins and has moved them up to third place on the log with Sale.
