BOTH sides fielded much-changed line-ups in this East One derby encounter due to unavailability and injury.

An entertaining match was still served up at the Volunteer Park, however.

Linden won this particular battle with tries from Greg Cunningham, Terry Skeet, Stuart Williams, Kirk Ford and Colin Murray (2) with Ford kicking five conversions and a penalty.

Quins’ tries were scored by Ross Nichol, Mark Nichol and Greg Hunter, Chris Ritson converting two.
