BBC London Harlequins won their first piece of silverware for seven years with their dramatic victory against Stade Francais in the Challenge Cup and the hope will be that it will prove a watershed victory.
A squad packed with young talent made great strides last season although this was not always reflected in results or their final league standing.
Their defence was second to none but they could be guilty of spurning opportunities and were dogged by ill discipline.
Conor O'Shea allows his players the licence to make their own decisions on the field and will expect them to become more hard-nosed this campaign.
Club stalwart Ceri Jones departed but the club has brought in props Mayhew and Fairbrother in an effort to strengthen the front row.
Matt Hopper will provide another option at centre while scrum-half Richard Bolt will see some action after Danny Care's injury. Quins have got lots going for them in the pack with the ebullience of Joe Marler, Joe Gray and George Robson and the leadership and athleticism of captain Chris Robshaw.
Nick Evans is a class apart at fly-half and will look to bring the best out of strike runners Jordan Turner-Hall, Ugo Monye and George Lowe.
If they can find the nerve to take their chances and close out big matches, they could be contenders. All Harlequins home Premiership games are live on the BBC London website.

Director of rugby Richard Cockeril finds himself without six England players and five more internationals who will be on World Cup duty. In addition to the close-season departures, Tigers have suffered significant pre-season blows with serious injuries to back-row duo Craig Newby and Jordan Crane.
Both will need major surgery: Crane is out for the season and his Kiwi team-mate for a lengthy period. Tigers welcome seven new faces with Julian Salvi - drafted in to cover Newby - boasting an impressive pedigree with the Brumbies in Super 15 and Bath two seasons ago.
Leicester hope to rejuvenate Mathew Tait, who has 38 Test caps, and they have high hopes for the young trio of Kieran Brookes prop , Micky Young scrum-half and Graham Kitchener lock.
Exciting centre Billy Twelvetrees, who had an outstanding Churchill Cup, should continue his progress and year-old fly-half George Ford, an IRB Young Player of the Year nominee, will get a chance to prove himself worthy of regular first-team games.
The previous two World Cup years, and , saw Tigers struggling to qualify for the Heineken Cup knock-out stages and missing out on the home front - which led to the swift departures of Dean Richards and Marcelo Loffredo.
Cockerill, entering his third season in charge, will relish the challenge of not suffering the same fate as his predecessors.

Last season: 1st Prediction: 4th. Gareth Steenson, pictured holding the Premiership trophy after their victory over Saracens. Director of rugby: David Humphreys.
Main man: Ross Moriarty — Richie McCaw earmarked the fiery flanker as his Lion to watch before a tour-ending injury.
Key signing: Ed Slater — Will bring a tough underbelly to the front five. Verdict: Losing Jonny May to Leicester was a backwards step. Last season: 9th Prediction: 10th.
Main man: Chris Robshaw — A pillar of dependability in a side that lacks the consistency of title challengers.
Rising star: Marcus Smith — Young No 10 has skills to earn YouTube hits. Verdict: Kingston lacks an experienced playmaker. Last season: 6th Prediction: 6th.
Rising star: Harry Thacker — 5ft 8in hooker makes up for his size with one of the best skillsets in the country. Key signing: George Ford — Huge expectation on the Red Rose No Verdict: If Hollywood backline remain injury-free then title could be theirs.
Last season: 4th Prediction: 3rd. Rising star: Joe Cokanasiga — Size and speed of the teenage winger has caught the eye of Eddie Jones. Key signing: Napolioni Nalaga — A Fijian flyer blessed with a try-scoring rate up there with the best.
They have played their hand and others now know what to expect from Rob Baxter's men and teams will be better equipped to deal with their threats. Meanwhile, success brings the Devon club a host of different challenges, such as the strain of competition on both a domestic and European front while losing a whole host of key players to international duty.
What's changed: Exeter have mainly stuck with the squad that gave them their most successful season to date with Baxter bringing in just three new faces to Sandy Park; Ollie Devoto, Greg Holmes and Dave Dennis.
Winger Jack Arnott and prop Alex Brown both move on to pastures new as they join the Cornish Pirates and Perpignan respectively. Ins: Ollie Devoto Bath , Greg Holmes Queensland Reds , Dave Dennis NSW Waratahs.
Outs: Adam Hughes Newport Gwent Dragons , Alex Brown Perpignan , Lewis Stevenson Connacht , Byron McGuigan Sale Sharks , Jack Arnott Cornish Pirates , Brett Sturgess retired.
What's hot: Greig Laidlaw steering the ship. The team's captain is said to have improved the relationship between the players and coaching staff in the off-season in a move that can only help coherence on the pitch.
His international experience will prove invaluable to a squad littered with young up-and-coming players while helping hone the skills of Gloucester's future scrum-halves.
What's not: The late arrival of Josh Hohneck. Gloucester will have to wait until New Zealand Maori's trans-Atlantic tour is over to see their new signing in action.
Negotiations had taken place between director of rugby David Humphreys and the NZRU over an early release for the prop but their request was denied, leaving the Cherry and Whites without their man until mid-November at the earliest.
What's changed: Gloucester have continued to add to their southern hemisphere contingent with the signings of the Highlanders' Josh Hohneck and the Hurricanes' Moto Matu'u.
Former Edinburgh centre Matt Scott will add to their resources in the midfield while promising youngster Charlie Beckett joins from Leicester Tigers.
Bill Meakes and Elliott Stooke lead the players leaving the club, Meakes swapping Kingsholm for a spell with the Western Force as Stooke joins rivals Bath.
Ins: Josh Hohneck Highlanders, New Zealand , Motu Matu'u Hurricanes, New Zealand , Matt Scott Edinburgh , Tom Denton Leinster , Andy Symons Worcester , Cameron Orr Greater Sydney Rams , Charlie Beckett Leicester Tigers.
Outs: Bill Meakes Western Force, Australia , Elliott Stooke Bath , Steve McColl Yorkshire Carnegie , Tom Hicks Rotherham , Dan Murphy, Nick Wood, Rob Cook, Steph Reynolds all released.
What's hot: A fully refreshed Joe Marler. After turning down the chance to tour with England this summer due to mental and physical exhaustion, the prop is ready and raring to go for the new season.
What's not: The loss of Nick Easter. Although the talismanic No 8 remains at the club with his new role in the coaching team he will no longer be Quins' go-to man on the field.
Ins: Mark Reddish Highlanders, New Zealand , Ruaridh Jackson Wasps , Cameron Holenstein Pau , Charlie Mulchrone Worcester , George Naoupu Connacht , Aaron Morris Saracens , Alofa Alofa La Rochelle.
May registered 62 tries in games for the club, posting 41 scores in 91 Premiership appearances and five in the European Cup from 13 games and will be sorely missed from the Gloucester back-line when the season begins.
What's changed: The head coach. Gloucester have called upon former South African international Johan Ackermann to assist director of rugby David Humphreys this season.
As a coach, Ackermann led the Lions to promotion back into Super Rugby in , and took them to the Super Final in , where they lost to Hurricanes.
Ins: Fraser Balmain Leicester , Val Rapava-Ruskin Worcester , Owen Williams Leicester , Gareth Denman Northampton , Jake Polledri Hartpury , Jason Woodward Bristol , Ed Slater Leicester , Ruan Ackermann Lions.
Outs: Greig Laidlaw Clermont , James Hook Ospreys , Matt Kvesic Exeter , Joe Batley Bristol , Joe Latta Bristol Josh McNutty Harlequins , Salesi Ma'afu Narbonne , Matt Protheroe Bristol , Dan Thomas Bristol , Tom Lindsay Bedford , Sione Kalamafoni Leicester , Yann Thomas Rouen , Paul Doran-Jones Wasps Darren Dawidiuk London Irish , Jonny May Leicester.
What's hot: Big-name signings. Both players have the experience and flair needed to propel Sale from a mid-table outfit to top four contenders building upon the foundation of home-grown talent already established by Diamond at the AJ Bell.
What's not: Off the field behaviour. It has not been a good summer for Sale Sharks off the field - Denny Solomona found himself sent home from England's training camp for an alcohol-related team culture issue, while Rob Webber was convicted of drink driving.
With James O'Connor also having off-the-field issues it could be a troubling season ahead if Sale's stars continue to make the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
What's changed: A lot has changed around the AJ Bell in the off-season as Steve Diamond looks to build a team to be reckoned with in the North.
While a number of impressive big signings have been made there is an extensive number of leavers including influential and experienced scrum-half duo Mike Phillips and Peter Stringer and powerful centre Sam Tuitupou.
Ins: Josh Strauss Glasgow , Will Cliff, Marc Jones Bristol , Alexandru Tarus Beziers , Jono Ross Stade Francais , WillGroff John Doncaster , Faf de Klerk Lions , James O'Connor Toulon.
