Harlequins' Prop Will Collier talks you through the perfect line-out lift
No more is this evident than in Quins home form this season, that has only seen them lose once in all competitions; against Northampton Saints on September 11th. This support has not gone unnoticed from the players, either.
O'Shea: "The atmosphere that has been created at the Stoop is a real factor in our home record and the players also appreciated the huge number of you that traveled with us to Italy last week."
The travelling Quins supporters that made the trip to Tuscany witnessed a six try, 16-48 win, that coupled with Bayonne's loss to Connacht on the same day, sees them in a fantastic position in Pool 1 going into their final game needing a win to secure a home quarter final place.
The team will not be taking this game lightly, and are fully aware of what is at stake. Despite the loss at home to Connacht, O'Shea points to Bayonne's recent wins in the Top 14 against La Rochelle, Toulon and Castres as signs of a 'formidable opponent'.
O'Shea: "Our form and results over the last few weeks have been really good but we face a different challenge on Saturday; today is knock out rugby against a formidable opponent. We know from our visit to them when we lost how tough they will be. For us, we are looking to sustain the momentum that we have created and also by winning, securing a home draw in the quarters."
And O'Shea is clear about what is needed for victory.
"Nothing but our best will see us through and when we are up against it, as we will be, your support can and will make the difference."
