Bloodgate - Harlequins vs Leinster 2009

In April of 2009, Harlequins, a stylish London rugby club had scaled the heights of European competition to meet Leinster in the quarter final stage. In this game of attrition, they ground Leinster down and with five minutes to go, they could snatch the game from the favourites by scoring with their star kicker Nick Evans. However, Nick Evans was off the field injured but the Harlequins backroom team was trying to get him back on the field. In this episode, Ian and Matt explore how this game took a turn that nobody was expecting.
