Booth delighted after London Irish end streak

London Irish Boss Toby Booth was understandably pleased that his Exiles team ended their 10 match losing streak with a big win over the Ospreys.

The Exiles are out of the running for a quarter-final place, but their power packed defensive display also ended the Ospreys chances of a fourth successive Heineken Cup knock-out spot.

“Where we have been in recent weeks this game was all about getting a result. It really is a monkey off our back,” said a delighted Booth.

“This win has been coming for a few weeks, but nothing beats finally getting over the line,” he told ERCRugby.

“I have wanted the win to come, and we have felt it coming, but you have to earn the right to get a victory and I thought we did that today.

“We are under no illusions about where we are, but it will be easier going to work on Monday after a win like that.”

London Irish have a tough task ahead as they must travel to Thomond Park next weekend to face a Munster team that will be looking to give their home fans something to smile about after they were knocked out by Toulon.
