Marcus Smith’s latest show stuns Cardiff Blues as Harlequins complete thrilling comeback


Harlequins still had time for another of their comebacks, Care rushing in after Harlequins appeared to set up a maul.

They quickly put more pressure on, with Cardiff hooker Kirby Myhill doomed. Smith’s dancing footwork after minutes from scrimmage was the difference, scoring and converting to level things at 33-33 with four minutes remaining.

There was still time for a twist, and after Cardiff faltered in their own half, Harlequins raced for the winning penalty at the breakdown, knocked down by Smith to secure another breathtaking victory.
