Just saw England's next back row. Robshaw at 6, Kvesic at 7 and Clifford playing the Pocock 7.5 (no8) role. Heard it here first. #bbcrugby

FT: Harlequins 39-39 Gloucester

It was incredible, we weren't accurate enough and tried to play with too much ambition. I think we'll get stronger as the season goes on, I just hope we don't concede many tries like we did today. I'm sure it was good to watch, it was horrendous from our point of view. We played some outstanding rugby.

Conor O'SheaHarlequins director of rugby

FT: Harlequins 39-39 Gloucester

It was quick, open. We played some great rugby but gifted them three interception tries so we are disappointed. We showed great courage, but that never-say-die ambition got us back level. We are encouraged to play rugby but that comes with an element of risk. It almost came back to bite us today. The lungs are blowing a bit, it's a great club a professional set up and that's all you can ask for. I'm really happy.

So with round seven now done, this is how things stand in the Premiership. Leaders Saracens remain unbeaten while Newcastle are now  bottom.

Quins and Gloucester draw a thriller

Harlequins 39-39 Gloucester

39 - @QuinsRugbyUnion v @gloucesterrugby saw the third highest scoring draw in @premrugby history. Thriller.

FT: Harlequins 39-39 Gloucester

Gutted to miss the drop-goal at the end. We gave them too many easy points, but a good fightback. We pride ourselves on that. A few of the crowd probably haven't got much hair left after pulling it out.

What happened? I blacked out.

FT: Harlequins 39-39 Gloucester

Gloucester came here and went at the hosts in a way that said, 'we're not going to lay down'. Nobody gave them a chance before the game.

Harlequins 39-39 Gloucester

So it's a bonus point each as they game ends all square. Time to catch breath!

Doff of the cap to you @QuinsRugbyUnion - What a game!

What an incredible game. Where do you start in trying to describe that!!

Harlequins 39-39 Gloucester

Quins have one last chance but the ball is lost and it's all over. What a game. What excitement. 

Harlequins 39-39 Gloucester

Quins win the line-out, and they start going through the phases. Nick Evans is in the pocket and he's fed the ball. His drop-goal is agonisingly wide of the posts. That was so, so close. 

Harlequins 39-39 Gloucester

Apologies, it's closer than 22. Quins are in Gloucester's 5m. 

Harlequins 39-39 Gloucester

We have two minutes left and it's all square. Can anyone win it? Nick Evans kicks Quins into Gloucester's 22. 

Harlequins 39-39 Gloucester

Gloucester are really under the cosh now. Quins threw that last line-out to the front and kept working and working until they moved it wide to the left.

Andy Wyman, summariser on BBC Radio Gloucestershire

Try (Chisholm, con Evans)

It is absolutely bedlam out there! Quins win the line-out but Gloucester get a good drive on. Quins re-set the maul and go again and they're within metres. They recycle the ball and Ross Chisholm goes over in the left corner. 

Nick Evans holds his nerve and curls over the conversion too. We're all square!

Harlequins 32-39 Gloucester

That's not a good situation to be in really. When it comes to scrummage time, they'll need to sacrifice someone Gloucester. You'll anticipate a drive now from Harlequins.

Andy Wyman, summariser on BBC Radio Gloucestershire

Sin-bin (Hibbard)

Richard Hibbard is sent to the bin for collapsing the maul. Gloucester down to 14-men and it's another line-out, 5m out. Five minutes left. 

Harlequins 32-39 Gloucester

Quins win the line-out and recycle the ball across their three-quarters but Ross Chisholm runs out of space and kicks the ball into Gloucester's corner. They're 5m out.

Harlequins 32-39 Gloucester

Richard Hibbard is adjudged to have collapsed a scrum and Mike Brown kicks his side into the Gloucester 22 from the resulting penalty. 

Penalty (Evans)

Harlequins 32-39 Gloucester

Ah! Gloucester concede a penalty from the restart and Quins have a lifeline. Nick Evans sends over the penalty and they're within a converted try of Gloucester.

In keeping with the style we've seen all through this match. Counter-attacking, trying to attack the opposition when they're at their weakest. Quite clearly both sides don't rate the other's defence.

Hugh Godwin, Independent on Sunday rugby writer on BBC Radio London

Try (Cook, con Laidlaw)

Harlequins 29-39 Gloucester

Gloucester are camped inside Quins' half as they go in search of a fifth try. They recycle the ball across their three-quarters but run out of space and the ball is in touch. They make a mess of the line-out though and Quins clear the danger. Rob Cook collects the ball from just inside half-way and slices through the Quins defence like a hot knife through butter and scores a superb, individual try. 

UNBELIEVABLE from Cook. Step step step. Pace TRY TIME!!! twitter.com/gloucesterrugb… #QUINSvGLOS

Harlequins 29-32 Gloucester

15 minutes to go and it's absolute mayhem out there. Harlequins have a scrum inside their own 5m line but they win the ball and clear. Charlie Sharples collects the ball and hacks forward and is just denied another try by the bounce of the ball. 

And yet..

Home crowd too busy with the Mexican wave to worry about the game here. [29-32] #QUINSvGLOS

No try

Harlequins 29-32 Gloucester

Gloucester think they've got a fifth try, James Hook hacks forward but Charlie Sharples knocks the ball on under pressure from Nick Evans and the try is not given. 

In case you missed it...

Harlequins 29-32 Gloucester

We've just had three tries in four minutes with Gloucester edging this enthralling contest.

Penalty (Laidlaw)

Harlequins 29-32 Gloucester

Grieg Laidlaw kicks the penalty and Gloucester have the lead back. 

Harlequins 29-29 Gloucester

Still 20 minutes to go at Twickenham and Ross Chisholm concedes a penalty on his own try-line for not releasing the ball. 

Harlequins 29-29 Gloucester

Henry Trinder has now got two tries and one dodgy hamstring.

Hugh Godwin, Independent on Sunday rugby writer on BBC Radio London

Try (Trinder, Laidlaw missed con)

Harlequins 29-29 Gloucester

What is going on? Henry Trinder intercepts a Danny Care pass and the Gloucester man has a clear run to the line, he pulls his hamstring with just a few metres to go but still manages to hobble over. Injury strikes poor Trinder yet again! Grieg Laidlaw missed the conversion so it's all square while both sides now have a bonus point. 

Harlequins 29-24 Gloucester

Jamie Roberts, you know what he's going to do. Once he was in behind, he managed to make 20-25 metres, drew the pass and Ross Chisholm was in behind around the outside.

Andy Wyman, summariser on BBC Radio Gloucestershire

Try (Chisholm, con Evans)

Harlequins 29-24 Gloucester

Wow! What a turnaround! Jamie Roberts crashes through midfield, bursting through several tackles before releasing Mike Brown who himself pulls off a superb one-handed off load to Ross Chisholm on the left wing. The Quins man flies down the wing and goes over to put his side in the lead. Nick Evans adds the conversion. What an incredible few minutes.

Try (Nick Easter, Con Evans)

Harlequins 22-24 Gloucester

Danny Care gets Quins back on the front foot, and after several phases Nick Easter bundles over from close range. Nick Evans adds the extras in what is becoming a points fest at Twickenham.

So, even though Quins have dominated possession, it's Gloucester who are one try away from a bonus point here at Twickenham. 

Harlequins 15-24 Gloucester

What an opportunist try. Henry Trinder left everyone behind by the time he made the Quins 10-metre line. He's a much bigger, stronger unit than he used to be.

Andy Wyman, summariser on BBC Radio Gloucestershire

Try (Trinder, Con Laidlaw)

Harlequins 15-24 Gloucester

Danny Care and then George Lowe look as if they have broken through Gloucester's line but the ball breaks free and Henry Trinder picks up the scraps. From broken play and well inside his own half he outpaces the Quins defence to score under the posts. Greig Laidlaw adds the conversion.

Harlequins 15-17 Gloucester

Quins win another penalty from a scrum and it's a quick tap and go by Danny Care but it comes to nothing though and they kick away possession. 

Harlequins 15-17 Gloucester

Quins win the line-out and recycle the ball but Gloucester forward Matt Kvesic jackals the ball at the breakdown and his side eventually win a penalty to alleviate the pressure.
