INTERNATIONAL WATCH: Quintet on duty
23 November 2017
Five London Irish players are set to represent their country this weekend as the Autumn Internationals continue.
Lasha Lomidze, Ciaran Hearn, Manasa Saulo, Aseli Tikoirotuma and Ofisa Treviranus are all preparing themselves for action.
Lomidze was in impressive form for Georgia on Saturday as they went close to pulling off an upset against Wales in Cardiff. Edged out 13-6 by Warren Gatland’s men, Lomidze now turns his attention to this Saturday’s Test with the USA.
Meanwhile, Canadian centre Hearn who helped the Maple Leafs overcome Spain 37-27 in Madrid, will lock horns with club teammates Saulo and Tikoirotuma this weekend. Saulo and Tikoirotuma did Fiji proud last weekend, narrowly losing 23-20 against Ireland at the Aviva Stadium.
Fellow Pacific Islander Treviranus is priming himself for the mouth-watering prospect of going toe to toe with England at Twickenham. The powerful back row, who scored a try for London Irish at HQ on the opening day of the Aviva Premiership season, will be hoping to do the same this Saturday.
