"Europe is an integral part of the club's history and this is an important moment in our season. Playing teams like Harlequins will also help our progress even further and to play the Harlequins at their home ground in London is pure motivation in itself.
"They are a very prestigious club and with World Champions in their ranks such as Will Greenwood and Jason Leonard amongst many other fine players, they play rugby of very high quality.
"We will go there with no particular pressure, we will be calm, but we won't be there as spectators either! Our performance in these matches is what counts above all else and I would like to see two good performances. We have a young team, helped along by the experience of Alain Penaud in particular.""It's great for the team that we have got this far. It is part of our growth as a team. We were promoted from the Second Division at the start of the season and while we prepared during the summer to do everything to our very best, this is a bonus."
