A late try-burst secured a victory of significance for Belfast Harlequins in the Ulster clash at Deramore Park today.

Dungannon had gone into the game in a rich vein of form but the home side had too much power up front and ultimately finish out wide as they put their campaign back on track with a three-try victory.

The home side's dominance at the scrum gave Quins the platform to open the scoring against the wind when Roger Wilson powered over from close range.

Dungannon had their moments in the first half but were never able to exploit their strong wind advantage in the first half.

Quins, in contrast, used the wind to pin Dungannon back after the break and penalty by Ajay Derwin extended the lead with a penalty in a 65th minute before a late double-strike by Andy Park and Johnny Lowe completed the victory.
