Crusaders moved into the top eight by coming from behind to steal a win at death by defeating bottom of the table Harlequins RL at the Gnoll in Neath.
Re-arranged from Maundy Thursday due to a waterlogged pitch, Quins took an early lead as wing Jamie O'Callaghan took a neat pass from Tony Clubb to score the first try of the game.
On 18 minutes Rhys Hanbury combined with Jason Chan to score out wide as the hosts drew level. Just before the break fullback Ben Jones-Bishop's mazy run from half way gave Quins a 10-4 lead.
The first 30 minutes of the second half both teams cancelled each other out and a Danny Orr penalty with nine minutes left extended the visitors' advantage.
Crusaders suddenly burst into life and stunned the Londoners by snatching the game with two tries in the last 7 minutes of the game. Jason Chan found a gap in the defence and went over to cut the lead.
Minutes later Hanbury was on hand to score from 10-metres out to claim a dramatic win and keep their play-off hopes in their own hands.
