London Irish’s only win in their last five games against the Tigers was 18-12 in this equivalent fixture at Madejski Stadium last season. Leicester have won just one of their last four visits to Reading.
London Irish have slipped to four straight defeats in all competitions since their 39-26 home win over Sale in Aviva Premiership Rugby on 31 October. The Exiles have won all four home Premiership matches they have played this season.
Leicester Tigers are one of only three teams in the Premiership who have lost all their away games this season: the others are Newcastle and Leeds. The Tigers have already picked up seven bonus points this campaign, whilst the only time they have come away with no league points was in the 19-27 reversal at Northampton in round one.
