HARLEQUINS boss Conor O’Shea is refusing to get carried away despite the Aviva Premiership champions extending their unbeaten European run with an eight-try demolition of Zebre on Saturday.
Two penalty tries, a double from Sam Smith and scores from Nick Easter, Matt Hopper, Rob Buchanan and Ben Botica saw Quins down Zebre 57-14 for a third Heineken Cup victory of the season.
“When we lose games we don’t get carried away, and it’s the same when we win,” said O’Shea. “It’s about being in with a shout come May. You can do an unprofessional job and cause yourself problems which eventually come home to roost.”
Ronan O’Gara out-kicked Owen Farrell as Munster beat Saracens 15-9, while in the Amlin Challenge Cup Freddie Burns grabbed 24 points as Gloucester won 29-22 at London Irish. Wasps drew with Bayonne while London Welsh lost at Grenoble.
