Austin responded 6 minutes later after similar pressure inside the Quins 22 and some deft handling work saw them score out wide, The lead switched 6 times in the first half with the score tied at 13 at the break.
The Quins struck early in the second half with a great effort by the team to put scrum half Daron Liebenberg over for the go ahead try, conversion by Jeff Dull was good.The lead changed a further 3 times as each team fought for the 2 score lead. A late yellow brought the Quins down to 14 men which Austin capitalized on scoring two trys in the last 5 minutes to seal the win
