Chris Robshaw hopes Harlequins can take their superb domestic form into the European arena when they pit their wits against Toulouse in the Heineken Cup, a competition they are 14/1 with bookmaker to win this season.
Quins are nine points clear at the top of the Aviva Premiership table after beating Wasps 22-16 at the weekend, their tenth successive league victory and 14th in all competitions.
But captain Robshaw knows four-time European champions Toulouse will provide an exceptional challenge when they visit the Stoop for a Pool Six clash. Quins are 15/8 to top the pool.
“It’s pretty special,” he said. “They’re the big guns you want to play against in rugby. You’ve really got to test yourself and find out what you’re about.
“Everyone’s really looking forward to it.”
