The Harlequins still had time for another of their returns, Care jumped over after the Harlequins seemed to be setting up a maul.
They soon increased the pressure even further, with Cardiff whore Kirby Myhill. Smith’s dance work with his feet after minutes of scrums made the difference, scoring and changing the score to 33-33 by four minutes to the end.
It was still time for a turnaround, and after Cardiff slipped into his own half, the Harlequins jumped into the winning penalty at the break, which Smith knocked down and secured another stunning win.
