Weakened Side fall short against strong Irish team
By Jorrit Schrauwers
London Irish win
A side weakened through injury (and the odd visit to girlfriends) were always going to struggle against London Irish and in the end we only fielded the bare 15 players.
A well drilled side, the Irish were a handful right from the start, but the Staines players kept on trying. A very poor 10 minutes in the second half saw them ship four tries and effectively killed the game.
That said, the boys never gave up and continued to fight until the end.
