Quins fight back to tie with Tigers

Nick Evans produced more last gasp heroics as Harlequins snatched a draw with Leicester in front of a record Premiership crowd at Twickenham.

LONDON // Nick Evans produced more last gasp heroics as Harlequins snatched a draw with Leicester in front of a record Guinness Premiership crowd. A fortnight ago, Evans' successful drop goal with the final kick of the game had sealed Harlequins a famous Heineken Cup victory over Stade Francais. Against the Tigers at Twickenham, the former New Zealand flyhalf sent Ugo Monye in for a last-minute try before landing a touchline conversion to complete a stunning Harlequins comeback. With five minutes remaining against Leicester the Londoners had been 10 points adrift. But the Tigers flanker Lewis Moody was sin-binned as Quins mounted a late rally and Evans took full advantage to send the 50,000 crowd home in festive spirits. *PA Sport
