A match against Waterloo is always going to be a war of attrition, but for Quins the victory may prove to be a platform to kick their season into gear.
See how seemlessly I worked in the station and the battle, but there’s one more reference that has be taken into account when you mention the word Waterloo, and that of course is ABBA.
Well the winner takes it all, and on this occasion it was Quins that earned a bonus point victory at a sun drenched Surrey Sports Park.
Two tries in the first ten minutes from Chloe Edwards and Shaunagh Brown,gave the home side a lead that they never looked like losing.
A third try on the stroke of half time from Stacey White gave Quins a 15-0 lead at the break, and proved to be a killer blow to the visitors.
Two penalties from Waterloo fly half Bethany Scott in the 43rd and 48th minute, reduced Quins lead to 15-6, but the Harlequins scrum continued to dominate which meant the Waterloo back line could never get any real attacking momentum.
A try bonus point was just what the doctor ordered as Zoe Saynor crashed over from close range for Quins fourth, with 55 minutes on the clock.
Chloe Butler touched down in the 73rd minute and an Ellie Green conversion made it 27-6 to Harlequins.
