Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea was a happy man after the Aviva Premiership champions notched their second victory of the season.

Ugo Monye and George Robson both scored two tries in a 40-3 rout of new-boys London Welsh at the Twickenham Stoop.

"We are satisfied," O'Shea said. "We held our discipline very well at times when it could have got quite fractious.

"I was delighted with the way we started, with the directness and the tempo we would want. You can't score six tries to nil and not be relatively happy.

"To get off to two bonus-point wins is a nice way to start the season."

London Welsh boss Lyn Jones said: "Tonight wasn't a good day in the office. We knew it would be a tough game but we were keen to perform better than we did tonight.

"The disappointment was not losing but not justifying how well we can play. The boys are devastated at the moment.

"We have got boys who are learning to deal with the speed and the intensity of the Premiership. We are hoping to adjust as quickly as we can."
