Premiership leaders Exeter Chiefs saw their unbeaten start to the season come to an end as they were beaten 28-26 at Harlequins.
Exeter had won each of their first eight games, but found themselves 13-5 down at half-time at Twickenham Stoop.
Jamie Chisholm went over from a line-out and Nathan Earle crossed to give Quins an eight-point lead at the break, and it was one they held on to despite a 21-point second half from Exeter.
Ian Whitten raced clear to give Exeter hope of pulling off a dramatic victory, but Quins survived a tense finish to condemn the Chiefs to their first defeat.
? A night that’ll live long in the memory. Thank you, as always, to those that came down to The Stoop
