Welcome to the London Irish Supporters’ Club (LISC) website.
As we prepare for a season in the Championship, we have new experiences and new adventures to look forward to, so 2016-17 promises to be an exciting season in the history of our great club.
There have been a number of changes amongst our coaching and playing staff, which sees Nick Kennedy becoming our new Director of Rugby and the return of Brendan Venter as Technical Director.
Looking forward to the new season, we have a multitude of London derbies against the likes of Ealing Trailfinders, London Scottish, London Welsh & Richmond.
And there are some interesting trips further-a-field, many will be looking forward to the trips to play Jersey Reds and the Cornish Pirates, not forgetting three trips up to Yorkshire (Doncaster Knights, Rotherham Titans & Yorkshire Carnegie) and one up to Nottingham and last but not least there is Bedford which is well within the day-trip range for many of us.
And assuming the season goes to plan it will finish with the tension and excitement of the play-offs
See our LISC Guide to the Championship for information on each of our opponents for the 2016-17 season.
In addition we will also have our first experience of the British & Irish Cup. This competition features the 12 Championship teams along with “A” teams from the 4 Irish Provinces and “Premiership Select” teams representing the 4 Welsh Regions. Teams are divided into 5 pools of 4. The 5 pool winners and 3 best runner-ups progress to the knock-out stages. We are in pool 3 along with Cornish Pirates, Ospreys Premiership Select and Connacht Eagles.
A full fixture list for the 2016/17 season can be found on the Official London Irish website (Note: Fixtures are subject to change).
