Record crowd watches Harlequins beat Saracens

2:59 pm on 1 April 2012

A world record crowd for a club rugby match of almost 84 thousand turned up to watch English Premiership leaders Harlequins beat London rivals Saracens 24-19 at Wembley Stadium.

The previous record was just over 82 thousand for a 2009 Heineken Cup quarter-final between Leinster and Munster at Croke Park in Dublin.

Harlequins and Saracens attracted a crowd of 82,000 earlier this season at Twickenham.
