WHAT'S ON: London Irish v Richmond

7 January 2019

London Irish will be back at the Madejski Stadium on Sunday 14 April when Hartpury visit Reading for Round 20 of the Greene King IPA Championship.

The Exiles came out on top away at Hartpury in Round 10, beating the Gloucestershire side 38-5 and taking five points. The men in green will be looking for a repeat of the same, though following a recent upturn in form, Hartpury will no doubt be out to get their own back on the league leaders.
