O'Shea fumes as Harlequins prove to be soft touch
4:00pm Sunday 13th October 2013 in Quins
Harlequins saw their Heineken Cup hopes suffer a huge blow on the opening day of the competition as they crashed 26-33 at home to the Scarlets.
A Mike Brown brace and 16 points from the boot of Nick Evans was not enough to prevent a third straight defeat for Quins, who remain winless at the Stoop this season.
Director of rugby Conor O'Shea, who excluded Nick Easter, Brown and skipper Chris Robshaw from any blame, labelled his side's performance as 'terrible' and some of the tackling on show as akin to touch rugby.
