Harlequins have come from behind to record an ultimately straightforward 32-20 win over Cardiff Blues in Thursday night's European Challenge Cup clash at the Cardiff Arms Park.

A tense first half saw just nine points shared out between the two competitors, Rhys Patchell and Ben Botica scoring two and one penalties respectively to put Blues 6-3 up at the break.

The action picked up after the restart, however, as tries from Tim Visser, Ollie Lindsay-Hague and Charlie Walker helped the visitors to a seemingly insurmountable lead after 65 minutes played.

A penalty try for the hosts in the 69th minute appeared to bring about the chance of a comeback, but with time running out, a straight red card for Matthew Rees gave Quins the edge.

Sam Hobbs crossed over in the 79th minute to make for a nervy finish, but Danny Care notched up a try of his own moments later to give his side an ultimately comfortable win.
