The team kept going for the full eighty minutes and fully deserved the plaudits of a happy and bouncing Kingsholm at full time.
After leading the team out before kick off and being awarded the Medallion of the City of Gloucester by Mayor Chris Chatterton and City Council leader Paul James, Hazell was shown a video of old team mates paying tribute to him which was greatly received by the 12,531 in attendance.
Following the game, Hazell was awarded the Man of the Match award by the 1873 Club members and came up to the Abbey Business Lounge where he received his award from Peter Prozesky, Continuous Improvements Director, in Charge of Diversity Inclusion from EDF Energy.
He then took part in an informal Q&A, facilitated by former Gloucester back row forward Simon Devereux alongside team mates Matt Kvesic and Shane Monahan.
Devs had this to say:
"An emotionally charged day was rewarded with an excellent three try victory over Harlequins who arrived with the tightest defensive record in the Premiership. Gloucester created numerous good early attacking positions in the first half but failed to capitalise and were caught napping from a quick Quins tap penalty to leave them behind at the break.
"Gloucester started the second half strongly and had clearly done their homework in the lineout, which functioned superbly all game. Matt Kvesic was driven over from a 5 metre lineout after Charlie Sharples had shown good tenacity in chasing a kick from Dan Robson.
"A quick try by Dan Murphy followed a 5 metre scrum and at this point Gloucester were looking good for a winning bonus point but squandered a couple of chances before Quins hit back. Overall a good performance by Gloucester underpinned with a strong set piece.
"The players were in good spirits in front of the gathered 1873 Club members and guests. Matt Kvesic paid tribute to Andy Hazell before Shane and Matt then gave alternative predictions for the England v Ireland match of the day, much to the amusement of those gathered!
"Fittingly Hazey received the Man of the Match award, sharing some experiences from the day and his previous 17 seasons with Gloucester."
During half time, Hazell spoke to Kingsholm stadium announcer Graham Spring for a brief chat before he was shown the tribute video for the first time.
