Exiles on the Rise

It seems as though London Irish are putting their relegation last season behind them and focusing on dominating the Championship. Winning eight games back-to-back, the Exiles have really hit the ground running.

To boot things off this season (quite literally), London Irish hosted a kicking competition back in July 2018 with their primary sponsors, waste management experts Powerday. Plenty of players took part, and it seems to have really set them up for success.

Take a look at the video featuring the team below to see who finished top and who finished bottom of the pile on the day.


Skips and wheelie bins were placed a good distance away from the contestants, kicking the ball into big skips earnt you fewer points, while small wheelie bins earnt you more – simple, really! With each player getting three attempts to build their score, it was great to see the competition heat up.

Think you could do better, though? Well, now you can put that to the test with the new online game: London Irish’s Rugby Kick Challenge.

Sponsored by Powerday, the game allows you to choose one of 10 players to take your kicks with. If you hit the blue skips to the left or right, that’s 5 points, but if you hit the gold skip between the posts, that’s 10 points. Happy kicking!
