However, the hosts soon took control of the match, with Paul Sackey and Maurie Fa'asavalu both crossing the line before the break.

Quins increased their lead early in the second half when Tom Guest picked off an ambitious Leicester pass, sprinting back for the try.

The result also gives Harlequins their first win of the competition.
