London Irish cannot afford a drain of talent

Aviva Premiership Rugby Football Union club the London Irish must never allow a lack of ambition on part of the club to spark a mass exodus of their star players, according to Brian Smith, the Director of Rugby of the club.

Mick Crossan, the boss of Powerday, helped secure the long term future of the club recently with the chief of the waste management company leading a takeover of the board that will see fresh investment come into the club.
