The last four meetings between the two rivals in the Premiership have all been won by the home side on the day, whilst London Irish have won just once before in nine previous visits to Adams Park in all competitions: 56-37 on 30 April 2006.
London Wasps have won two of their last three games in all competitions. In Aviva Premiership Rugby the away team has won the last three games that Wasps have played.
London Irish top the Aviva Premiership Rugby table but have lost their last two outings – both in the Anglo-Welsh Cup. The Exiles have suffered just one reversal in the Premiership so far this season: 13-20 at Bath in round two.
