  2. O'Shea has his say

    FT: Harlequins 35-28 Bath

    Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea told BT Sport:

    "I think it's so hard to take in. 

    "We've gone through a pretty tough few weeks and the way a couple of young fellas fronted up was superb.

    "They're frustrated in the dressing room because thee were playing so well and our mistakes and our errors let in a really good Bath side. 

    "Credit to the opposition for playing as they did because they could have backed up and not come back."

  3. Mike Ford: 'We've got seven games to go and we're going to win the next seven'

    FT: Harlequins 35-28 Bath

    Bath head coach Mike Ford told BT Sport:

    "We shot ourselves in the foot I thought.

    "The sin-binning cost us 24 points, we have had away a couple of loose passes which gave away some tries and we were always on the back foot.

    "We're going to win our next game, that's all we can do. 

    "We'll get a few bodies back in the next few weeks and we're going to be positive. 

    "We've got seven games to go and we're going to win the next seven."

  6. Can Premiership rugby crack the USA?

    Saturday: London Irish v Saracens (20:00 GMT)

    Luke Narraway and Brad Barritt

    "It's difficult to break the States. The Beatles managed it, One Direction got there, I think, and now it's Premiership Rugby's turn."

    Those are the words of Premiership commercial director Dominic Hayes as the English game prepares to break new ground on Saturday, when its first competitive fixture overseas kicks-off just half an hour from the bright lights of Manhattan and New York.

    Will it be a success? Should we expect more games to be played abroad in the future? BBC Sport's Adam Williams has found out.

  7. Nick Easter: 'Hopefully it will kick start a little bit of a run'

    FT: Harlequins 35-28 Bath

    Harlequins forward Nick Easter told BT Sport:

    "For 50 minutes it was exceptional. We held onto the ball and looked very dangerous and we kept a very well-organised Bath attack out. 

    "But then we seemed to be on the wrong end of the referee at the end, we've got to look at that and paint the right pictures. Some of the decisions we were left scratching our heads, but it's not good doing that, we've just got to make sure we deal with it. 

    "But we dug in and what you saw was a side that hasn't won many in the last five or six games and struggle to get over the line and we got over the line. 

    "Hopefully it will kick start a little bit of a run now."

  8. FT: Harlequins 35-28 Bath

    Reaction on the way to a superb contest...

  9. Full-time

    Harlequins 35-28 Bath

    Wow. What a game.

  10. Penalty (Homer)

    Harlequins 35-28 Bath

    Bath get an unlikely bonus point in the final minute as Tom Homer slots over from in front of the posts. What a fightback!

  11. Sin-bin (Horwill)

    Harlequins 35-25 Bath

    James Horwill gets a yellow card and an early bath for Quins for a high tackle. A bit harsh?

  12. Record comeback?

    Harlequins 35-25 Bath

    Should Bath get a victory here, it would be the biggest comeback in the history of the Premiership. Remember at one point today Bath were 35-6 down earlier in this half. Never mind London Irish v Saracens - they should be showing this game to the USA.....

  13. Bath close in....

    Harlequins 35-25 Bath

    Quote Message: Dare I suggest it - game on?! from Jamie Hill BBC Radio London commentator
    Jamie HillBBC Radio London commentator

    It absolutely is now! Can Bath do the unthinkable?

  14. Try (Rokoduguni, Homer con))

    Harlequins 35-26 Bath

    Oh. My. Word. Could the comeback be on for Bath? Matt Banahan with another run, this time down the right wing and he offloads to Semesa Rokoduguni who gets across the line. Tom Homer gets the conversion. 

  15. Try (Williams, Homer con)

    Harlequins 35-18 Bath

    With Dave Ward and Nick Easter both needing treatment, Quins were effectively down to 12 men and Bath took advantage.

    Matt Banahan powerfully ran down the left wing before passing to Jeff Williams who coasted over to give Bath some hope - or is it too little too late? Tom Homer added the extras.

  16. Cup triumph for Jersey

    Championship side Jersey win their first-ever knockout game in the British and Irish Cup, winning 19-15 at Bedford to set up a semi-final next week at either Moseley or Yorkshire Carnegie.

  17. Try (Mafi)

    Harlequins 35-11 Bath

    Bath drive for for the left corner with the man advantage. Amanaki Mafi goes over thanks to the TMO. His arm was not in touch. Tom Homer's conversion attempt goes wide.

  18. Sin-bin (Twomey)

    Harlequins 35-6 Bath

    Harlequins replacement Sam Twomey is off for 10 minutes after bringing down a Bath player in the air from a lineout.

  19. Happy Conor

    Harlequins 35-6 Bath

    What a great early St Patrick's Day present Harlequins have given Conor O'Shea. Barring one of the greatest comebacks ever his side will be fifth, level on points with fourth-placed Wasps in a few minutes time. His side's backs have been excellent, especially in the first half and defensively Bath have been kept well and truly at bay.

  20. Eastmond injured?

    Harlequins 35-6 Bath

    Bath's England back Kyle Eastmond looks to be struggling. He was holding the back of of his left leg in the first half and has just had some attention from the Bath medical team - he looks to be walking rather gingerly. When it's not going your way...
