2012 Led by inspirational flanker Chris Robshaw, Harlequins defeated Leicester Tigers 30-23 to clinch the Aviva Premiership crown in front of a record crowd at Twickenham. Three years on from their Bloodgate fiasco, Quins had director of rugby Conor O'Shea to thank for turning around their fortunes, with Robshaw and wing Tom Williams on the scoresheet in the final. Steve Mafi and Anthony Allen replied as Leicester rallied late on, but the Tigers were forced to bid farewell to club legend Alesana Tuilagi with a defeat.
