Games against London Irish have been closely fought encounters over the past few years. Last Friday's Premiership, started really well and I felt we were more than deserving of the win. The pack, in particular, were outstanding and the hard running of Johnny Leota and Sammy Tuitupou in the middle, was a real threat for us.
It's a weird situation to find ourselves, playing back-to-back games against Irish. This week's match should be another great spectacle, with a few fresh faces from last week, having a run on both sides I'm sure. The Madejski Stadium is an awesome stadium and one we'll relish playing at.
This competition is an important one for us and the energy in training this week has been great! We have Thursday off and then a big training day Friday and team run on Saturday, before we head down to London.
PS. Best of luck to Wales against the Argies!
