Back in the Mix

In a reversal of common belief London Irish recently started to put together a string of wins and edge their way up the table into the crowded mid-field where a few points separate 7 teams. Back-to-back wins against Harlequins at home and, crucially, Bath away had seen the Exiles hit 5th place in the table. Expectations were altered by a home, narrow loss to Leicester dropping Irish back to 7th and making the trip to Newcastle more meaningful. | The Craic : Unofficial London Irish news, views and message boards.
