Conor O'Shea relieved by Harlequins triumph

Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea admits his relief at his team's narrow win over London Wasps in their Aviva Premiership opener.

Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea has admitted his relief at his team's narrow victory over London Wasps in the Aviva Premiership.

Quins came within inches of losing the match at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday, but Andy Goode's late conversion hit the post to hand the visitors a 16-15 win.

"I'm delighted with the result - it's an away win," BBC Sport quotes O'Shea as saying. "We played two games against them last season and they were both decided by a score - this was decided by a post.

"I had mentally prepared myself for it to go over. He hit it beautifully and it hit the post - it's hit the inside of the post, not even the fat side.

"I said to Dai [Young] after the game we just shouldn't play each other, it's horrible."

Quins play their first home match of the season on Friday when they welcome Northampton Saints to Twickenham Stoop.
