Still In It
Always a good game against Pirates! We finished with a bonus point three tries from the visitors in the closing stages had everyone at Goldington Road a bit twitchy.
Always a good game against the Cornish Pirates so hopefully a decent crowd of non-Xmas shoppers when they visit Goldington Road this week (Saturday kick off 3.00) - despite it being in the Championship Cup.
If Irish are the stand-out team in the Championship then we can take heart from not being too far behind. In our two games so far we have given an excellent account of ourselves going down with a fight 21-13 at the Madesjki in the Championship Cup.

Aftr last week's big 43-14 Championship Cup win against the College boys of Hartpury (how many are actually students?) it's an even tougher call this week with a trip to the Madjeski .. Sunday kick off 3.00 ...
College Boys Back In Town
Floodlights on tonight as we once again host Hartpury College - this time in the Championship Cup.
Pirates Pinch Cup Win

It couldn't have been closer but victory was ours. Not many teams will win at the Mennaye Fields this season and very few games in the Championship will be as hard fought as our 30-29 win .
