Conor O'Shea delighted by Harlequins victory

Quins director of rugby Conor O'Shea praises his side for putting in an "ambitious" display during Friday's 25-9 win over Castres in the European Rugby Champions Cup.

Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea has praised his side for their "ambitious" performance during Friday's win over Castres in the European Rugby Champions Cup.

Quins got their Pool 2 campaign off to a victorious start last night thanks to a 25-9 triumph at Twickenham Stoop.

After seeing his team start their domestic campaign in disappointing form, O'Shea believes that their win over Castres is an encouraging sign.

"We were really ambitious with the way we played in that first half," he is quoted as saying by BBC Sport. "That was not a weak Castres front five, but our scrum and lineout were excellent. We have a long way to go, we know that, but this was a real step forward."

Quins return to European action next Sunday when they face Wasps at Adams Park.
