London Irish Festival Raffle

As the season comes to an end for all our teams there is one particular section of our club that have an opportunity to demonstrate all their hard work to a local, national and international audience at the 2018 Mini Festival. A key part of our annual calendar, we anticipate thousands of adults and children to visit Hazelwood for the Festival. For this the mini committee have been working hard over the past months to put all the logistics in place to make the event a success. But like all events we need the support of both those participating and maybe those who are a little older to be running out for the mini’s by selling tickets for the Raffle. This year we have an exceptional list of prizes money can’t and can buy for those who love the game and those who might prefer something a little more conventional. An exclusive training session with the professional team including lunch, signed London Irish materials, a signed Leinster Jersey (inc Johnny Sexton), (full List Below). So, can I remind and encourage you all to approach family, friends, neighbours, work colleagues and those who love the game to give them an opportunity to win one of these fantastic prizes while supporting a truly great festival. Thank you, good Luck and get Selling for your Club, Catherine Caplis – Raffle 2018 Mini...

London Irish Wild Geese v Taunton Titans – A view from the side (10th March)

Taunton 31, London Irish Wild Geese 24   After a two week break for the Geese it was time for the return fixture away to Taunton Titans, who the Geese scalped earlier in the season at Hazelwood. The first half did not go well for the Geese as the hosts managed to run four tries in to secure a bonus point at the half way stage. However, the Geese did not finish the half scoreless, as newly returned try machine Reon Joseph somehow managed to score even with 3 defenders having a hold of him 20 metres out. The first half ended with the Titans looking strong at 28-5. The second half showed just what the Wild Geese are about and how they can put the fear of losing into a top 5 side, as after some excellent pressure from two well worked maul drives, the Geese were awarded two penalty tries making the score 28-19. With the Geese only 9 points adrift, substitute tight-head Henry Paul crashed his way over the line to secure at least 1 point for the visiting Geese. The drama did not end as Taunton had two players yellow carded for the penalty tries and more shockingly a red card was shown to their star No.8 for punching off the ball on substitute backrow Courtney Raymond. With Taunton feeling the pressure as the Geese...
