THE future looks bright for Harlequins - despite the club crashing out of the Heineken Cup at the weekend.
Quins exited the competition following an 18-12 quarter-final defeat by Munster and must now concentrate on getting their Aviva Premiership title-tilt back on track.
Conor O’Shea’s side, who have been warm-weather training in Spain this week, have lost their last three consecutive domestic fixtures to leave fans sweating over their chances of securing a top-four finish.
Bath are the visitors to the Twickenham Stoop on Saturday and O’Shea will be hoping to put their European exit behind them as quickly as possible.
However, the Quins director of rugby did have one reason to smile this week as the club announced plans to build a state-of-the-art Centre for Rugby in conjunction with the University of Surrey.
The new £1million development at Surrey Sports Park near Guildford will start immediately and will house medical, video and statistical analysis suites.
Quins chief David Ellis said: "Our players and coaches deserve the best training facilities and now they will have them.
"This development represents a major investment by the club, and we are grateful to our owners and to the University of Surrey, in particular to the management of Surrey Sports Park, for making it possible.”
