London Irish Beat Castres To Earn A Spot In The Quarter-finals

Date:

London Irish booked a spot in the European Challenge Cup quarter-finals. Irish won 64-27 at the Brentford Community Stadium and will now fly to play either Toulon or Benetton Rugby in the last eight. 

Hooker Augustin Creevy scored twice, and Curtis Rona, Tom Pearson, Juan Martin Gonzalez, and Kyle Rowe all had their share before the break. Castres did respond with a second-half goal from Rory Kockott and Theo Chabouni, plus Ben Botica’s penalty, to reduce the gap to 40-27. But the Exiles got intense in the final 10 minutes as Matt Rogerson, Will Joseph, Matt Cornish, and Benhard Janse Van Rensburg all crossed. Paddy Jackson succeeded with seven attempts.
