Harlequins started the build-up to Fridays European Challenge Cup final aiming to lift the trophy for second dad Conor OShea, but will arrive in Lyon paying tribute to prop Seb Adeniran-Olule. Captain Danny Care hailed departing rugby director OSheas paternal influence on the Twickenham outfit, but that motivation doubtless fades after young prop Adeniran-Olules death this week in a car crash.A minutes silence will be held in memory of Adeniran-Olule before kick-off in Quins European final clash with Montpellier in Lyon on Friday night. The Harlequins squad will wear black armbands to honour a 20-year-old loosehead prop, who had a bright rugby future ahead.OSheas fatherly instincts will doubtless have come to the fore after the shock loss of Adeniran-Olule, and skipper Care hailed the former Ireland full-back, who will take charge of Quins one last time before joining Italy. Jamie Roberts looks ahead to Harlequins game against Montpellier in the Challenge Cup final Conor came in at an incredibly tough time, the club was probably at an all-time low, and he came in and a few people probably questioned why he was coming into the club, said Care of OShea, who joined Harlequins after the bloodgate scandal that saw Dean Richards depart.He saw a lot of potential, he saw a squad he thought could do some special things. With his guidance and some good players in the squad we have had a very successful six years under his tenure.Hes been brilliant for the club, a lot of players have developed through him, and gone on to reach international honours. Hes been like a second dad for a lot of us, hes looked after us and guided us.

Watch Will Greenwoods Challenge Cup final preview This club has given me a heck of a lot, more than Ive given to it, OShea told Sky Sports.Ive given everything I can.

We got ourselves into a great position pre-Six Nations, and for the second Six Nations in a row we have lost our momentum and been unable to get it back.But we have an opportunity that sport gives you on Friday night, to finish with an emotional high. It will be one of the greatest achievements because of what we did last week [against Exeter]. Marler keen to learn lesson Prop feared his England career would suffer following latest ban This is one of two trophies we could win at the start of the season and were in the final against an incredible Montpellier side.The odds are stacked against us but if you look at the names on our teamsheet, theyre proud ambitious people and want to have a medal in the cupboard, one that adds to the 150 years of this club.
