McDermott calls upon London to cheer Quins past Saints
3 May 2010 12:29pm
Harlequins Rugby League head coach, Brian McDermott, is urging Londoners to turn up and make themselves heard when his side face St Helens in the fifth round of the Carnegie Challenge Cup on Sunday 9th May (2pm KO).
Harlequins will go into the game in fine form having racked up victories over Wakefield, Wigan and Hull FC in the past three weeks.
Now McDermott is calling upon fans to show their support and help Quins continue their cup run.
"I'm asking for the whole of London rugby league to get to the Stoop at the weekend and give the team some vocal support." he said.
"For the lover of the game in London, get behind your players and out number the Saints fans."
Harlequins narrowly missed out to Saint Helens in a Super League tie last month, however on the back of three magnificent victories, the team are confident they can be overturned in the quest for silverware.
Tickets for Harlequins v St Helens are available now for just £12 adults, £6 concessions and under 16s. Call the Harlequins Ticket Office on 0871 527 1315 or book online at www.quins.co.uk
The Broncos Under-19s were searching for their first win in three games against a St Helens side lying second in the league but despite leading 20-10 early in the second half, 24 unanswered points from the visitors condemned them to another defeat.
