London Irish head coach Toby Booth has denied that there is a witch hunt at London Irish and says that they will recover soon. The Exiles’ latest setback was a 28-18 loss at Harlequins on Monday.

Booth told BBC Berkshire: “This is not about pointing the finger. I’ll always back my players and defend my players.

“Over the last three or four weeks we’ve made significant strides but those strides aren’t big enough. We have to bring this run to an end.”
