London Irish News & Form

The Exiles won their last home game in the Premiership, which was back in round four against Leicester. That was a good win for them and it was actually the first since February last year that London Irish had secured a league home win.

Bath 1-7 point winning margin

You would have to go back a further two years to find the lost occasion where they secured back to back league success. In the last round of league action, the Irish played out a thrilling 27-27 draw at Bristol, the first time that they had drawn a league game since 2015. So they are struggling once again, but can they make the most of Bath’s tumbling form?

So they aren’t carrying a great threat out on the road at all. But then there is their head to head record against the Irish. Bath have won last their last nine on the bounce against them.
