London Irish 33 Cornish Pirates 24

Madejski Stadium Reading

Phil Westren's Report

With a focus back to British & Irish Cup action, this game at the Madejski Stadium, Reading, saw London Irish consolidate their place at the top of Pool 3. Despite the loss, however, the Pirates are still in second place.

The Pirates selected a side that gave a number of players an opportunity to ‘put their hands up’, and with club captain Chris Morgan named on the bench it was Tom Duncan who took over the skipper’s armband. Also, following a busy autumn, Canadian international Matt Evans was rested for this particular encounter.
