Conor O'Shea relishing 'exciting' semi-final showdown with Leicester
We are ready for the incredibly exciting test next week. If we can take our chances we'll be right in it.
Quotes of the week
Harlequins boss Conor O'Shea is already looking forward to an "incredibly exciting" Aviva Premiership play-off semi-final at Leicester next Saturday.
Quins secured third place in the table with their 22-19 victory over Northampton in front of a sell-out 14,800 crowd at the Stoop.
Quins have already beaten Leicester home and away this season but O'Shea said: "That's kind of irrelevant.
"The next game is always the big game so we need to turn up with the mindset we had today, the intensity and the intent we had today, but we have to do it for 80 minutes.
"If you go to Welford Road and you don't do it for 80, it's not good enough. We are ready for the incredibly exciting test next week. If we can take our chances we'll be right in it."
England captain Chris Robshaw, not chosen this week for the British and Irish Lions tour to Australia, faces a battle to recover from a twisted ankle in time for the semi-final.
O'Shea said: "We'll know the minute he starts running on Monday or Tuesday.
"He's desperate to play and get back out there after the disappointment he suffered this week. Selection is subjective, but we feel he should have been there."
"But, if he doesn't quite make it, I thought Luke Wallace was magnificent today."
Northampton, who dropped from third to fourth, must go to table-toppers Saracens next weekend for their semi-final on the artificial pitch at Allianz Park.
Director of rugby Jim Mallinder said: "It's an unknown for us being away to Sarries in terms of the new pitch there.
"But we're not going to go there worried about them. We know they are a quality side, very difficult to beat, but we also know that, on our day, we've got a real good team.
"If we can put our play together for 80 minutes then we can upset the favourites.
"We are very motivated. We have players leaving the club, but we have been away to various grounds and to various sides this year as underdogs and we have turned them over.
"We've had a little bit of criticism this season and been accused of being dull, but when it's throwing it down, why not play to your strengths? I think that's what we did over that period.
"We conceded a couple of slack tries. We came back well in the second half and it was a game we could have won."Aviva Premiership. Click here to bet.
