Team Form
Irish come in to this game probably viewing it as an extra match they don't need with a relegation battle on their hands. They'll be well aware that Newcastle have the week off, and will be rested and waiting for the relegation decider between the two in a weeks time. Coming up to this game the London Irish season as a whole has been terrible, with few wins, and many losses it's easily their worst. Even when playing at their best, they've still usually contrived to lose games they'd expect to win.

Harlequins have had a mixed season, they started strongly but the 6Ns and other things seem to have effected them badly. They'll be looking to use Europe to get their season back on track, and will not only expect to beat Irish, but will expect to make the finals of this comp.
