Samu Manoa started at lock for the Northampton Saints Friday as the English Premiership team beat league leaders Harlequins 24-3.

Manoa was, once again, very solid for the Saints and was named Man of the Match.

The victory puts Northampton alone in 3rd place, for now, but also helps USA-connected Saracens. The club of Chris Wyles and Hayden Smith are in second place, and can move within two points of Harlequins if they have a good game against Chris Biller and Bath.

Wyles is expected to play Saturday, but Biller and Smith are not.
