London irish and Newcastle Falcons meet in a "dead rubber" in the LV= Anglo-Welsh Cup in Reading on Saturday, with both sides already guaranteed elimination from this season's tournament. The Exiles who have never appeared in the final of the Anglo-Welsh Cup, have picked up just a solitary losing bonus point from the three Pool fixtures that they have played.

Having opened their campaign with a narrow, and somewhat unlucky 16-17 loss to the Leicester Tigers, the wheels came off for the Exiles in Round 2, when they were beaten 43-22 by Wasps. Already out of the tournament, last weekend they travelled to West Wales, where the Scarlets downed them by 27-18, registering their own first win of the competition to boot.

The Falcons lost the opening two fixtures that they played in Pool 3, going down 23-37 at the Saints, before being squeezed out by the Cardiff Blues at Kingston Park Stadium 21-22. Last weekend, the Falcons fielded an unusually experienced side for this particular competition, and were rewarded with a 39-19 win against visitors Sale Sharks. Even that victory still left them in third position in the Pool, and without a chance to improve on their best performance in the Anglo Welsh Cup, which saw them runners-up to Gloucester in 2011.
