JOE Marler's last-gasp try fired Harlequins into their first ever Premiership play-off final with a dramatic win over Northampton Saints on Saturday.
Quins trailed their visitors by eight points going into the last eight minutes of the Stoop semi-final, and by five points with three minutes left.
But with one last huge effort, the hosts, who never know when they are beaten under Conor O'Shea, drove over from a line-out, Marler emerging with the ball, but the decision going to the video ref.
The players seemed to know the outcome already, Nick Evans lining up to take a conversion and the Saints players gathering despondently behind the posts.
After an agonising minute or so, those three magic letters flashed up on the big screen and the roof was lifted off the Stoop with a roar of relief.
With the scores now level, Evans, who seems to kick better under pressure than when there is none, coolly slotted the conversion to put Quins two points in front.
There were a few nervy moments in the dying minutes, but as the last 10 seconds were counted down by the crowd, Quins snatched back possession and booted the ball into touch to claim a famous victory.
For the first hour or so, the game was a straight kicking contest between Evans and Northampton's Ryan Lamb, as both sides racked up the penalty count.
Evans' opening kick was cancelled out by Lamb, and after Evans missed his next one, Lamb booted Saints in front, before a further exchange left the visitors 9-6 in front on the half hour mark.
Lamb missed his next effort, while Evans went for touch with his, but Quins could not take the chance, and the former All Black went for the posts with his next penalty.
Lamb found his kicking boots again to give Saints a 12-9 half-time lead, but Evans levelled matters after the restart before kicking Quins in front for the first time since the opening exchanges on 58 minutes.
The lead did not last long, Lamb kicking Saints level a minute later before booting them in front, and when Evans missed his next effort, it looked like it wasn't going to be Quins' day.
Things looked even bleaker when Lee Dickson went over for the game's opening try on 66 minutes, but Quins were given a glimmer of hope when Lamb missed the conversion.
With eight minutes left, Evans kicked the hosts to within a score with a penalty, and when he got another one four minutes later, he went for touch, and this time Quins made sure thanks to the magnificent Marler.
Quins will now take on Leicester Tigers at Twickenham in the final on Saturday week, looking to be crowned Premiership champions for the first time ever.
