Excited Exiles return to the Premiership

A refreshed and excited London Irish squad will be travelling to Adams Park this weekend to take on Wasps.

<1r>Six players, Dermody, Casey, Ojo , Hodgson, Lamb and Roche all return to the starting line up. Jamie Lennard retains his position as fullback.

Toby Booth, London Irish Head Coach said: "There's been a different buzz in training this week. We're refreshed and excited to be getting back into the Premiership.

"We're looking forward to a game with some free flowing, quick ball which allows opportunities for attack. As winter conditions start to come into play dominance in the set piece will also be key in pressurising defences in order to get the rewards."
