London Irish Director of Rugby Nick Kennedy insists his side must continue to improve following Saturday’s 36-12 bonus-point victory over Richmond.

The Exiles made it two wins on the bounce to ensure an unbeaten start to the season ahead of this weekend’s trip to Bedford Blues.

And Kennedy, 34, who admits his outfit took their foot off the gas after the break, was ultimately satisfied with the win.

He told LITV: “I was very happy to get the win and I was pleased with the bonus-point as we look to keep our home form up for the season.

“There are a few areas we need to work on, and our intensity maybe dropped off a little bit in the second half, but we will address that during the week. There is still a lot of work for us to do in the build-up to next week’s game.”

Pinpointing the rolling maul as Irish’s key weapon, Kennedy added: “Our mauling was top notch and George Skivington works extremely hard with the boys - they have had a long pre-season with lots of mauling sessions.

“It’s great to see that hard work in training paying off in front of all of our supporters.”
