London Irish had a superb decade at the start of the 2000s, reaching the Premiership Final, European Cup semi-final and winning the Powergen Cup, and producing a string of England international players.
The move back into the capital will be the catalyst for success in the future, and we will be reaching out to the local residential and business communities to make London Irish their authentic club, and for the whole of London as well.
London Irish is more than just a professional team. The amateur side of the club is one of the largest in London, and every weekend hundreds of rugby players aged from six all the way upwards to the veterans wear the green shirt in matches. A true community club, London Irish has recently extended its partnership with the Middlesex RFU to develop the best young players in the west London area.
