Harlequins have raced six points clear at the top of their European Cup pool - but director of rugby Conor O'Shea is looking no further ahead than the return tie against Zebre in Round Four.

Harlequins have raced six points clear at the top of their European Cup pool - but director of rugby Conor O'Shea is looking no further ahead than the return tie against Zebre in Round Four.

The English champions romped to a 57-14 bonus point victory over the Italian newcomers at Stadio XXV Aprile but O'Shea rejected the suggestion that it sent out a message to the rest of Europe.

"It's one of those ones where you're damned if you do and damned if you don't," he said.

"Of course there is ambition in the club, but people will write this result off as irrelevant - and they are more than entitled to do just that.

"All we can do is to continue playing as a team, and make sure we are in control of our own destiny. When we lose games we don't get carried away, and it's the same when we win.

"It's about being in with a shout come April and May. You can do an unprofessional job and cause yourself problems which eventually come home to roost.

"But I was pleased that we did a professional job in very difficult conditions. To score eight tries against a team that stubborn is no mean feat."
