Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea unhappy with performance in defeat of Worcester
Harlequins boss Conor O'Shea was unhappy with his side, despite seeing them grind out a 22-19 victory over Worcester Warriors.
The Aviva Premiership leaders were pushed all the way at The Stoop and O'Shea was clearly not impressed.
"Disappointing game - no momentum," was the director of rugby's summation of the evening.
"It was the second week in a row that the opposition have given away 20 penalties against us.
"I hope their front five are all right because every single time there was momentum in the game there was a player getting injured. I hope they're OK.
"But we had plenty of our own things we didn't do well. It's a win - that's all you can say. We're pretty disappointed."
O'Shea added: "There was just no flow, no momentum, no nothing in the game.
"It's a good lesson. We've won it and the guys dug themselves out but there's a lot of frustration in the way that game flowed. Twenty penalties is a heck of a lot.
"It wasn't a good game of rugby, not enjoyable but we'll take the four points."
Opposite number Richard Hill said: "I was very pleased with the performance and the effort that went in.
"We have had that passion, intensity and desire at home and tonight it was
about trying to replicate that away from home.
"The players gave everything and we had a real belief that we could win."
