Dorn: Quins back on track

Harlequins stand-off Luke Dorn believes his team are back on track after, by his own admission, a difficult start to the season.

The 27-year-old was instrumental in his side’s victory over league leaders Wigan Warriors last Friday, scoring twice in the second half to help Quins overturn an 18 point Wigan lead.

“Friday night was one of the best moments of my career. To face that score at half time and go back out in front of a huge crowd and win was awesome.

“We’ve all been saying from the start of the year that we are capable of beating anyone. But we weren’t doing the things we knew we were good at or sticking to the game-plan. The wake-up-call came against Hull KR on Easter Monday. That was a real low point but we have knuckled down and are starting to see the benefits.”

Dorn will travel with the squad to Edinburgh tomorrow for the Magic Weekend where Harlequins will face Hull FC. When the two sides met earlier this season at the KC Stadium, Hull won 28-4, but Dorn is confident of revenge on Saturday.

“The last time we played Hull was probably at the peak of our injuries; we are now definitely a more focused, better drilled team. We have to take Friday’s win at Wigan as a nice little bonus and try and turn Hull over; we owe them one for beating us earlier.”
