O'Shea hails 'oustanding kids'
But we won't get carried away says Quins boss
Harlequins boss Conor O'Shea insisted he would not get carried away with his side's fine start to the season after their demolition of Gloucester.
Quins followed up victories over London Irish and Northampton with a crushing 42-6 win at The Stoop on Saturday.
But the director of rugby said that, although he was happy with the performance, he would not be allowing his men to become complacent.
"We won't be getting carried away any time because our next job is our next minute," he said.
"It's not about winning the game today, it's about the next minute of the next game. So we are not getting carried away at all because this is a marathon.
"We are comfortable with the way we are trying to play, the shape we have, the intensity we have.
"But we know that in the next minute of the next game, if we don't approach it with the intensity and physicality we need to, we will be blasted, and that's not going to happen.
"This is the standard we want to set. You're as good as your next game, not your last one."
With 18 players unavailable due to World Cup duty, injuries and suspension O'Shea said he was impressed at how his younger players had stepped up to the challenge
"The front five at the end was basically a team of kids - I thought they were pretty outstanding," he added.
"But then you see people like Jordan Turner-Hall stepping up and doing the job he did. We have to battle through this period and if the youngsters step in and put their hands up like Luke Wallace then we are in a good place."
Gloucester head coach Bryan Redpath said that the absence of senior players on World Cup duty was no excuse for what he described as a 'rubbish' display by his side.
"That was unacceptable," he said. "It was a poor performance and pretty embarrassing in some of it. It would be dull and rude to use players that are away as an excuse.
"I think the players were more than capable of competing and putting up a better show than that today. We were extremely dull around penalties and discipline.
"We should have a good look at ourselves because that was a poor performance. We were not competitive enough.
"It's not a massive concern. If we were doing it every week I would be concerned. When you have weather conditions like that the basics have to be really good and our basics were poor.
"We turned over ball, we dropped ball and lost some set-piece. As a collective unit we were rubbish."
