An unexpected turn of events (edited)

London Irish progress to the Quarter Finals ... is it a little harsh to suggest that it wasn't looking very likely at all?

European Challenge Cup: Agen 17-31 London Irish
Fergus Mulchrone's effort and a penalty try completed the visitors' bonus-point win to finish second in the group.

Grenoble's triumph over Edinburgh was enough to help the Londoners progress as one of the three highest ranked runners-up in the group stage.

Even with passage to the next stage in Europe at stake, London Irish head coach Tom Coventry has used the competition to rotate his squad, with only eight players featuring in each of the last three games, dating back to their Premiership win against Newcastle on 10 January.

If they can play like that away in France lets hope Tom continues to rotate the team.

Let's hope the quarter final goes like this one:

Just spotted my dumb typo in the title of this post "An expected turn of events" - doh!
