England captain Dylan Hartley scored a try to guide Northampton to a Premiership victory against Harlequins as he continued his return from injury.

The hooker was on the end of a Saints rolling maul 10 minutes after coming on as a second-half replacement.

It proved decisive as Quins threatened an away win through tries from England scrum-half Danny Care and James Lang.

Dan Biggar kicked 17 points with a conversion and five penalties, missing just once off the tee for Saints.
