London Irish targeting three trophies: Booth

London Irish head coach Toby Booth says that his club are aiming to win all three major trophies this season.

Last season London Irish started well in the Premiership but dropped to a sixth place finish and failed to reach the knock-out stages of the Heineken Cup and the LV= Cup.

“My target is to win the Premiership. It’s what I believe we’re capable of. ” he told BBC Berkshire.

“Winning the Premiership, winning the LV= Cup and winning the Heineken Cup – that’s what I’m employed to do.”

London Irish have been drawn a tough group in the Heineken Cup pool alongside past winners Munster, Ospreys and Toulon.

“I believe we’ve got a team that can compete at the highest level on a regular basis,” he said.

“If you look at the results form last year, particularly the Leinster games, it reinforces my point.

“If it was insurmountable we’d put out the academy team, but we won’t because it’s a marker of measuring the progress of your players.

“They are markers of performance and achievement; they breed self-confidence and show that you’re going in the right direction.”
