Ugo Monye vows to help drive Harlequins to Heineken Cup success
The west Londoners have achieved consistent domestic success under Conor O’Shea but their Bloodgate tainted 2009 quarter-final defeat to Leinster remains their only forray in to Europe’s last eight.
Monye, in line to add to his 13 England caps against Fiji on November 10, is confident Quins can replicate their Aviva Premiership success and break new ground in Europe’s showcase competition.
"This season we are armed with a new confidence that is born out of winning titles and a belief that means we’re never beaten until the final whistle," said Monye, 29.
"We proved that against Northampton in the Premiership play-off semi last season when a couple of minutes away from defeat, and we proved it again last month when we came back from 27 points down to beat Wasps."
"We’ll be much the better for it when we compete this time in the Heineken Cup."
"It rankles that our Heineken Cup record is so poor, and it rankles even more that we only needed to draw in Connacht last season to qualify and lost. We want to become a big European club like Leinster, Leicester, Munster and Toulouse, and we hope this season will be the start of that process."
