Harlequins boss Conor O'Shea says his side won't get carried away despite their perfect start.

Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea says that his team will not get carried away despite picking up their sixth successive win at the weekend.

The Londoners beat rivals Leicester 28-17 to remain undefeated in the Aviva Premiership.

"We won't get carried away but I'd rather be in our position than Leicester's. It was an incredible ask for them," he said.

"We were under the pump in the first half but we were very opportunistic and then in the second half we dug in and I am really proud of the guys.

"Last season we lost 10 league games by one score or less, this season we are playing with more composure and the confidence that comes from winning."

Quins begin their LV=Cup campaign next weekend when they host London Irish at The Stoop.
