    FT: Harlequins 26-39 Exeter

    James Horwill is currently leading the Harlequins post mortem on the pitch.

    The big Australian does not look a happy man and I imagine there will be a few in that group with some choice words.

    FT: Harlequins 26-39 Exeter

    Exeter winger Olly Woodburn told BT Sport: "It was a great Premiership clash and it is hard to come here so it was a great victory

    "We played a lot of rugby but we were quite clinical at the end.

    "I think we're all enjoying it with the attacking rugby we're playing."

    FT: Harlequins 26-39 Exeter

    35 tries in thier last seven matches and Exeter are very much on course for a home semi-final.

    That was some showing.

  6. Full-time

    Harlequins 26-39 Exeter

    Rob Baxter

    Another bonus-point win for Exeter who go level on points with leaders Wasps.

    Even Rob Baxter should be able to crack a smile about that later.

    Harlequins were excellent for large periods, but they've lost by 13 points. At home. They stay in sixth.

  7. Try (Visser, con Swiel)

    Harlequins 26-39 Exeter

    Credit to Harlequins as they kept going, but a tiny consolation.

    Tim Visser with a fine score, showing footwork and strength but too little too late.

  8. Try (Visser)

    Harlequins 24-39 Exeter

  9. Post update

    Harlequins 19-39 Exeter

    James Horwill lets of a scream of happiness as they win a turnover penalty.

    However, Tim Swiel then kicks the penalty dead. Just about sums up the night.

  10. Try (Turner, con Steenson)

    Harlequins 19-39 Exeter

    Harlequins are trying, they're pressing, but a loose pass hits the floor and Lachlan Turner hacks it forward.

    The Australian full-back gets a kind bounce, and gets the ball for his second try of the night.

    Another conversion for Gareth Steenson and that is that.

  11. Try (Turner)

    Harlequins 19-37 Exeter

    Well that's the end of any comeback ideas...

  12. Post update

    Harlequins 19-32 Exeter

    Marland Yarde of Harlequins is caught by Jack Maunder & Geoff Parling of Exeter (R)

    Credit those in North West London who are trying to crank up the noise levels and get their team another try. 

    A losing bonus-point surely the intial target here.

  13. Post update

    Harlequins 19-32 Exeter

    Harlequins still pressing on. 

    Jamie Roberts, Marlande Yarde and Jamie Roberts all with half breaks that come to nothing.

  14. Post update

    Harlequins 19-32 Exeter

    Joe Marler of Harlequins is tackled by Dave Dennis & Carl Rimmer of Exeter

    Only Leicester have come away from the Twickenham Stoop with a Premiership win this season. 

    Harlequins need something special if that record is to stay the same.

  15. Try (Slade, con Steenson)

    Harlequins 19-32 Exeter

    Exeter scrum-half Jack Maunder's kick over the top looks like it is coming to come to nothing.

    But, Henry Slade gets to the ball, kicks over the stop again and regathers again for a second chip and chase score.

    There is the bonus-point and a game that was so close looks so comfortable for the Chiefs.

  16. Try (Slade)

    Harlequins 19-30 Exeter

  17. Post update

    Harlequins 19-25 Exeter

    Harlequins chasing a way back into this match, Exeter chasing a try bonus-point.

  18. Try (Turner, con Steenson)

    Harlequins 19-25 Exeter

    This is just sublime from the Exeter full-back.

    After Danny Care's attempted grubber and gather, Lachlan Turner gets the ball off James Short and counters in space.

    He comes up against Nick Evans, kicks ahead, regathers a difficult bouncing ball and then dots down. Stunning score.

    Replacement Gareth Steenson adds two more.

  19. Try (Turner)

    Harlequins 19-23 Exeter

  20. Post update

    Harlequins 19-18 Exeter

    James Short of Exeter Chiefs goes on the attack

    Chris Robshaw showed his quality with work rate and tackling earlier, but back from three months out and Luke Wallace shows his jackling skills to win a vital turnover on the edge of his own 22.

    He's back from three months out the Quins openside.
