WHAT'S ON: London Irish v Ealing Trailfinders

23 April 2019

London Irish are back at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday 27 April for the last home game of the season and the final round of the Greene King IPA Championship against Ealing Trailfinders (kick-off 3pm).

The Exiles may have already won the Championship, but with the two sides finishing in first and second place in the league the game still promises to be a hugely competitive fixture. Off the pitch, there will be plenty of entertainment on the day including live music, the trophy presentation and a chance to say goodbye to the leavers - so make sure you're at the Madejski for the final time this season and help us go out with a bang!
