Tim Visser, Oliver Lindsay-Hague, Charlie Walker and Danny Care all scored second-half tries for Harlequins with two conversions and two penalites from Ben Botica.

In Pool 4, Gloucester claimed a hard-fought victory at La Rochelle to maintain their winning start in Europe.

Steve McColl and Charlie Sharples both scored late on as the visitors snatched a 33-20 win in France.

A one minute-silence was staged ahead of the game in tribute to the 129 people who were killed in Friday's terror attacks in Paris.
