CHRIS MALONE wants to give Harlequins fans something to remember him by before he departs for London Irish in the summer.
With former All Black Nick Evans unavailable for last Sunday's win at Bristol, Malone, who is leaving due frustration at his lack of action, stepped into the breach at fly-half.
And although Evans is available again this Saturday's home game with Saracens, Malone is busting a gut for some more game time before he leaves.
He said: "I've shown all year that there's no reason why they can't put me out there.
"I hope to play a few more games before the season is over. Just one person can't play in all of them at fly-half.
"At the end of the day, I do play in quite a few games, but I want to play in more.
"We are going to have our work cut out this week as Saracens beat Sale, who are in the top two, but it's at home and we should beat them."
Meanwhile, Quins boss Dean Richards blamed referee Chris White for his side's lack of a bonus point in the 17-14 win at bristol.
Ugo Monye's try four minutes from time secured the win, but Quins spurned an opportunity to go for a fourth try and a bonus point with the last play of the game because of the uncertainty of what the referee was going to do next.
Richards said: "At the end of the match the players said that they just weren't sure what Chris White was going to pull out of the hat, so we took the four points and ran.
"It's a shame that you come
off after the game, sitting there in the changing room very very frustrated. There were perfect conditions underfoot, and you've got to ask why wasn't there more rugby played?
"We're renowned this year for having a go and playing expansive rugby, and we're totally frustrated.
"We knew it wasn't going to be pretty because Chris White allows too much of a contest at the breakdown, and a lot of the games become very messy."
Quins were in control from the off but suddenly found themselves a converted try behind after 18 minutes - the first conceded in four games.
Quins pulled back an unconverted effort from Springbok hooker Gary Botha, and although they took the lead two minutes into the second-half through David Strettle, they were unable to gain any momentum.
And things threatened to go pear-shaped in the final quarter when Quins lost prop Ceri Jones to the sin-bin following another messy scrum, and Bristol's David Lemi was awarded a penalty try.
Richards added: "The lads said they didn't take him down and Lemi milked it - they were surprised when the ref gave it.
"I've got to look at the refereeing decisions very, very closely and decide whether there is consistency across the board.
"If Chris White is going to penalise us I'm going to look very closely at if he's penalising them as well.
"The disappointing thing was the way that he didn't take charge of the scrummaging until late on.
"We knew from a scrummaging prospective what they were going to do.
"Everyone knows in the Premiership where problems lie in the scrum, and it's every week at the same club that problems arise."
