Harlequins scored five tries in a 38-13 Anglo-Welsh Cup win over Wasps in Abu Dhabi on Sunday in the first British domestic match to be played overseas.

Karl Dickson (2), George Lowe, Ceri Jones and Sam Smith all crossed for Quins with Tom Varndell and Joe Launchbury replying for Wasps.
The match was played on a specially built 5,000-seater stadium in the grounds of the Emirates Palace Hotel although both sides were under-strength due to a host of players remaining in Europe to prepare for the Six Nations.
