Wasps 29 Harlequins 25
HARLEQUINS still have the momentum in them - but they'll have to stop Bath's to beat them on Sunday.
That was the view of back row forward Chris Robshaw in the wake of Quins' defeat at Wasps - their first in four games - last Sunday.
He is expecting an equally tough game against Bath, who are another, like Quins, fighting for a Premiership play-off place.
Robshaw said: "We knew that our run would end at some stage, and Wasps is a hard place to come.
"But we've still got some momentum I believe. We've had a great little run, and now we can start another.
"Wasps away was never going to be easy, but I expect a similar game when we play Bath. "They've got big forward ball carriers who get over the gain-line and get those off-loads behind.
"And with backs like Ollie Barkley who can put the game to bed, we'll need to work on our first up tackles and stop their momentum.
"If we can do that, we'll have a great chance."
But while admiring the likes of Barkley, Robshaw reckons Quins have their own stars who can make a difference.
He said: "We have a lot of talented young players in the squad, like Danny Care and Adrian Jarvis, who can put us in a position and make breaks.
"And if our forwards can give them a good platform and get them quick ball, we know we've got the backs to do the job."
After a disastrous opening six-minute spell at Wasps, where Quins hardly touched the ball and conceded an early try, they fought level when Jarvis landing a penalty before threading a kick through for Hal Luscombe to touch down.
But 13 points conceded in seven minutes before the break proved costly, and despite a gallant second half fight-back, Quins fell agonisingly short.
Robshaw added: "We were a bit like rabbits in the headlights in the first half. They just kept running and running at us and getting so much momentum.
"We did well to come back in the second half and not concede a try, but our first half p e r f o r -mance real-ly let us down.
"But we went through some very hard times a few months ago, and that experience has made us stronger."
