Well, that wasn't very subtle. I hope it got awarded.

Fortunately it did.

M Christophe Berdos was the ref yesterday (part of the Top 14 / GP refs exchange programme) and had a pretty good game, he was even-handed and consistent.

Very-hot on players taking the ball into contact and holding on, but strangely not too keen at the same sort of incident to penalise defenders laying on the wrong side / over the ball preventing fair release.

A couple of weird incidents - a Quins kick stopped just inside the Saints in-goal area, Sean Lamont picks it up without appearing to tap it down and as there is now no 22 drop out he gets clobbered and Quins are only prevented from scoring because they muck it up a few phases later.

Then later on Gary Botha scores a cracking looking try only to have it ruled out as he cannoned off M. Berdos on the way to the line.

Not a classic, more of a case of job done. I hope the fact that we didn't score the 4 try BP doesn't prove costly later in the season.
