Harlequins, Clermont Remain Perfect in Rugby’s Heineken Cup

Dec. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Harlequins and Clermont Auvergne maintained their perfect records in rugby’s Heineken Cup, as Toulouse and Ulster lost for the first time.

Harlequins routed Zebre 53-5 to open up a 10-point lead in Pool 3 after four of six matches, while Clermont beat Leinster 28-21 to move eight points ahead of the two-time defending champion in Pool 5.

Toulouse’s 17-6 loss to Ospreys dropped it one point behind the Leicester Tigers, who beat Treviso 14-13, in Pool 2, while Ulster’s 10-9 loss to Northampton left it five points ahead of the Saints in Pool 4. Montpellier beat the Cardiff Blues 34-21 to move into a tie for the Pool 6 lead with Touloun, which plays the Sale Sharks tomorrow.

The six pool winners and the two best second-place teams advance to the quarterfinals of Europe’s elite club competition.
