What's On - London Irish v London Welsh

6 October 2016


This Saturday 8th of October (kick-off 3pm) London Irish welcome local rivals London Welsh to the Madejski Stadium, in the battle of the Exiles.

It has been two years since these two teams last faced off against each other at the Madejski Stadium with Irish coming out on top with a 24-9 win.

This game is also a special day for club legend David Pacie who is set to make his 250th appearance.

Digger’s Pound will be open as usual pre game in the North Stand. This is jam packed with fun for our Junior Exiles with activities such as a bouncy castle, connect four and FREE facepainting. The kids will also be able to pick up their FREE London Irish flag and FREE autograph card.
