London Wasps are the poorest team in Aviva Premiership Rugby on current form, picking up just three losing bonus points from their last six matches.
Wasps have suffered five straight defeats in all competitions but have not lost six in succession since 2001.
London Irish have won just one of their last seven encounters in all competitions: 23-15 at home to Gloucester in the Anglo-Welsh Cup on 4 February. The Exiles’ solitary away success since September was 34-14 at Racing-Metro in the European Cup on 10 December.
London Irish have won their last two encounters with Wasps but have not achieved a season’s double over their London neighbours since 2001/02. Irish’s only previous win at Adams Park came in April 2006.
