O'Shea: "The players are looking forward to it hugely"

The big games keep coming to The Stoop - this weekend, Harlequins face league leaders Leicester Tigers before next Friday's all-important home Amlin Challenge Cup semi-final v London Wasps.
Last weekend's victory over Gloucester, which saw Quins put 50 points past their West Country rivals, has given the side a big boost of confidence going into two huge home games coming up at The Stoop, according to Conor O'Shea.
The crowd on Saturday played a massive part in spurring on the side, and Conor O'Shea is no doubt that the same level of support will be needed over the next two crucial games.
"The Stoop last week was a great place to be and the fan's support really rallied the guys. I am sure over the next couple of games the atmosphere will ratchet up yet again and we are all looking forward to two tremendous game of rugby."
The Tigers coming to town will be the greatest test for O'Shea's side before going into next Friday's European knock-out match.
"On Saturday, we welcome the side that have set and continue to set the standards for club rugby both domestically and in Europe. We know the challenge we face but also are aware of the type of side that we are and are aiming to be. Playing Leicester is first and foremost a physical battle and the players are looking forward to it hugely."
London Wasps also have a great European pedigree, but O'Shea is adamant that another full house under the Friday night lights will bring cup success to the Stoop.
"We have been through a rough patch like most teams have at some stage within a season and we are hoping that our performance last week, in front of you, will give us the confidence to go forward and get something from the remainder of the season."
