After what proved to be a very enjoyable season in the Championship, it is good to be looking forward to the 2017-18 season as a Premiership side once again.
Our season opens with the London Double Header at Twickenham on Saturday 2nd September – we play Harlequins in what will be a “home” match for us. With 2 away matches to follow (against last season’s champions – Exeter Chiefs and then Sale Sharks), we do not get to play at the Madejski Stadium until Sunday 24th September when we host Northampton Saints.
Our Pre-Christmas fixture is away at Worcester Warriors and we finish the calendar year at home to Newcastle Falcons.
Our St Patrick’s match is scheduled for Saturday 24th March 2018 when we welcome Gloucester to the Madejski. And the regular season ends with a trip to Bath.
In the European Challenge Cup we have been drawn in pool 4 along with Edinburgh Rugby, Stade Francais Paris and Krasny Yar (who are from the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk). We start our campaign at home to Edinburgh on Saturday 14th October and travel to Paris the following Saturday. The reverse of these fixtures are in December and we have back to back matches against Krasny Yar in January.
In the Anglo-Welsh Cup we are in pool 4 along with Leicester Tigers, Newcastle Falcons and Ospreys and we will be playing against the teams in pool 1 – Bath visit the Madejski on Saturday 4th November and we travel to Gloucester the following weekend, we host Wasps at the end of January and visit Cardiff Blues the first weekend of February.
See our Away Travel pages for advice for getting to away matches.
A full fixture list for the 2017/18 season can be found on the Official London Irish website.
Note: Fixtures are subject to change – changes due to TV schedules should be known around 12 weeks in advance, although match day/times may also change to avoid clashing with international matches and local football matches.
