Argyle looking for a win this weekend

London Irish 23 Exeter 29

Exeter scored both of their tries in the final 20 minutes as they stormed home to victory over London Irish at the Madejski Stadium.

The visitors scored 15 unanswered points in the final quarter, including tries to Dean Mumm and Ben White, to secure a 29-23 win..

For the opening hour Irish were the better side, showing greater enterprise than a lethargic Exeter and with visitors' wing Tom James in the sin bin, the hosts appeared sure-fire winners.

Irish had already gone over through Nick Rouse and Marland Yarde in each half but they came to a standstill as 19 points from the boot of Gareth Steenson ensured Exeter sailed home.
