Still interested in knowing more about the game? Here’s our bluffers guide on London Irish…

THE OPPOSITION

London Irish formed in 1898. The founding ethos was to use a shared love of rugby and Irish heritage to unite Irish natives who were living in and around the city. Their nickname – the Exiles – is a homage to these roots. The club has participated in every Premiership season since its inception in 1996, apart from the 2016-2017 and 2018-2019 seasons in which they competed in the Championship – winning the title on both occasions.

NOTABLE PLAYERS

English rugby legend Mike Catt, who was part of England’s Rugby World Cup winning squad in 2003, played over 75 matches for London Irish before returning as a coach for four years between 2008 and 2012.

Current Exiles players to keep an eye on include Seán O’Brien and Paddy Jackson, who have represented Ireland over 75 times between them. Scrum-half Nick Phipps has played for Australia over 70 times.

FIXTURE HISTORY

In the inaugural professional English rugby union season Harlequins notched up their third-highest points total in a single Premiership game, dispatching London Irish 66-7. This hotly contested fixture is predictably unpredictable, Quins edging Irish with 24 wins to 21 going into this season. With an even amount of home and away victories too, it’s historically hard to tell who will come out on top between these two teams.
