Robshaw - It doesn't look good
Harlequins captain Chris Robshaw admits his team's chances of featuring in the Heineken Cup quarter-finals are hanging by the smallest of threads after they were stunned by Pool Six's bottom side Connacht.
A 9-8 defeat at a wet and windy Sportsground has seen Quins finish second in the pool, just a point behind four-time champions Toulouse - who suffered a surprise defeat at Gloucester.
Speaking afterwards, Robshaw said: ""We're going to have to console ourselves tonight, look back on the video and hope that someone else slips up along the line. It probably doesn't look like (we'll qualify).
"No-one was complacent. We wanted to be in the knockout stages. We didn't just want to be there to make up the numbers - we came in here to give it a real go.
"Obviously we'll see where things end up on Sunday night, but in all honesty we probably will be back in the Amlin (defending the title we won last year)."
Connacht head coach Eric Elwood was left to savour a historic first victory in the tournament for his native province.
A pitch invasion at the end showed just what it meant to the Connacht supporters, who have had to endure 14 successive losses for their side since last September.
"Even with the last scrum with nine seconds left I still wasn't convinced until the ref had blown the whistle and the ball was off the park, and people were invading the pitch," said Elwood.
"Unfortunately in Connacht we don't make things easy, but I have to acknowledge the commitment of the boys.
"To defend like we did with the discipline we did, the commitment was excellent. Our tackle count was two or three times (what theirs was), but that's nothing new for us."
