MATCH DAY REPORTLondon Irish vs Bristol Rugby

Bristol Rugby 26-27 London Irish

Bristol Rugby fell to a 27-26 defeat against Aviva Premiership London Irish on Friday evening.

In an impressive display, Andy Robinson’s side scored four tries as Andy Short (2), Mitch Eadie and Ross Johnston crossed at the Hazelwood training complex.

London Irish seized the early initiative, controlling possession and taking an early lead courtesy of Tom Homer’s well-struck penalty goal.

The home side enjoyed the lion’s share of territory early on, but were reduced to fourteen men when Halani Aulika was yellow carded for a high tackle on Jack Lam.

The Samoan debutant was sin-binned minutes later as Tom Homer landed a second successful penalty goal to stretch the advantage to 6-0.

But Bristol capitalized on a blistering counter-attack to score the opening try of the evening and engineer a route back into the game. Andy Short latched onto Matthew Morgan’s crossfield kick to fly over, although the Welsh fly half couldn’t convert from the angle.

London Irish responded when Halani Aulika dabbed down for a converted try from close range following Shane Geraghty’s sharp break.

And the Exiles pushed further ahead when Scott Steele scooped up a loose ball to coast in from six metres. Homer’s conversion left Bristol trailing 20-5, but Andy Robinson’s men responded in style.

Almost immediately from the restart, Bristol broke forward and, from Matthew Morgan’s delayed pass, Mitch Eadie crashed over to reduce the deficit with a converted score.

After London Irish skipper George Skivington saw yellow for a dangerous tackle, Andy Short intercepted a long pass to race in from sixty metres, putting Bristol within a single point at the interval.

After the break, the hosts edged further in front when Halani Aulika notched his second try of the evening, rumbling across the whitewash, while Homer slotted the extras.

Ross Johnston kept Bristol in touch with a fine solo effort ten minutes before full-time and, although Morgan had an opportunity with a long-range penalty goal late on, London Irish held out for the narrow 27-26 win in the driving rain.

London Irish:

Tom Homer; Topsy Ojo, Fergus Mulchrone, Eamonn Sheridan, James Short; Shane Geraghty, Scott Steele; Tom Court, David Paice, Halani Aulika, George Skivington (c), Dan Leo, Blair Cowan, Ofisa Treviranus, Tom Guest.
