Harlequins Director of Rugby Conor O’Shea is leaving the Harlequins at the end of the season after a successful 6 years in charge.

Conor O'SheaThe 45 year old Conor O’Shea is going to be a tough act to follow, after 6 exciting years at the Stoop with 3 cups under his belt, including the Premiership title back in 2012, the Amlin Challenge Cup and the Anglo-Welsh Cup (LV CUP).

Currently 3rd in the Aviva Premiership and finishing top of their pool in the European Rugby Challenge Cup, Harlequins are in a good place with plenty to look forward to and plenty positive to leave behind.

Conor O’Shea’s decision to leave is not only a tough choice to make, but comes at a time where the club need him to stay. Taking the Quins forward to bigger and better is in sight and O’Shea is the man to achieve this.

On speculation “where to next”, there have been a few top tips, but the latest is that Conor O’Shea is to be heading for a sunny climate as the new head of the Italy National Rugby team.

From the man himself, he insists that “I don’t know what the next move is – I’ll see and make that decision when the opportunity arises.”

The question now is who will step into the massive man sized Conor O’Shea shoes at the Quins?
