Harlequins withstood a late fightback to see off Hull and record the win at the Twickenham Stoop.
The game looked dead and buried after an hour, with Quins holding a 30-12 advantage.
It was Andy Smith's try on the stroke of half time that perhaps proved the turning point in the game, giving Harlequins an 18-8 half time lead.
Their advantage was extened through tries by Julian Rinaldi and Mark McLinden, both goaled by Henry Paul (pictured, above right), who landed 5 from 5, and it proved too much, as Hull just failed to complete what would have been a magnificent fightback.
