The Big Game 5: Harlequins v London Irish †
THIS EVENT ENDED ON THE 29TH DECEMBER 2012
The Big Game has become a firm fixture in the Aviva Premiership calendar as Harlequins swap their smaller Stoop Stadium for the hearty home of English rugby with a Christmas clash at Twickenham against one of their league rivals. In this year's fifth Big Game, Quins take on London Irish in a repeat of the 2010 fixture, which saw the "home" side win 28-18. Last year things were not so rosy for Harlequins: going into the game with an all-conquering record of 11 wins in the Premiership, they slumped to a 11-19 defeat to Saracens in front of a capacity 82,000 crowd at Twickenham - a global rugby union attendance record for a regular-season game. This year the annual showpiece clash comes closer to New Year than Christmas, but you can still expect it to be a cracker of a game. With tickets as low as £10 for adults and £5 for children, the Big Game 5 is an ideal stocking filler for any rugby fan. Got to www.thebiggame.co.uk for more information.
