O'Shea - It's early days
Quins chief delighted to make it three wins from three
Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea is refusing to get carried away by his side's excellent start to the season.
The reigning champions made it three wins out of three with a 37-14 victory over Sale at The Stoop.
But O'Shea admitted: "I am pretty happy to take 15 points from the 15 points available.
"Every game is a tough proposition at this level but it is very early days.
"It was a far from perfect performance, we didn't protect the ball enough and started to force it too much.
"There was one offload too many and we lost the penalty count 12-10 which is unusual for us."
Sale coach Bryan Redpath added: "The scoreline is not a fair reflection.
"We coughed up too much possession and gave away a soft try just before half-time.
"Danny Cipriani missed a couple of pots at goal but we looked dangerous in parts. Discipline let us down and our set-piece didn't function.
"Our attack was better today but we conceded too much in defence. However, we have played two of last season's top five away from home."
