It’s exciting to watch!

The Quins style is renowned over the world for being an appealing brand of rugby for supporters to watch. Quins love to run with ball in hand making sure they stick to their four principles; unpredictability, ruthlessness, tempo and most importantly enjoyment.

In the nine matches the Club has played this season, the team have scored 33 tries. This averages over three tries a game with Visser currently leading the way with six tries from seven appearances.



Big Game 8 is being headlined by MOBO and BRIT Award winning group Rudimental.

The list of acts continues as balloon modellers, jugglers and face painters are on hand to entertain supporters as they make their way around the West Car Park.  Look out for the jungle bus which hosts an indoor soft play area for kids and in front of that The Urban Arts Street Dance group will lead dancing sessions for all the family.

As the West Car Park entertainment concludes, Radio X DJ Vernon Kay will be leading the pre-match warm up inside Twickenham Stadium, preparing you for the live performance of Rudimental.


It’s a great time of year to be out and about
