London Irish will be desperate to improve on last season's Aviva Premiership campaign, when they were thankful to have Worcester Warriors and Newcastle Falcons in the league, as without those clubs, the Exiles would have found themselves embroiled in a relegation battle.

Harlequins, their opponents in the second half of the London Irish Double Header at Twickenham on Saturday, themselves will be looking for a more consistent campaign. At times last season, they were almost unplayable, while on other occasions they seemed determined to self implode.

With Twickenham just across the road from their Stoop ground, Harlequins seem to find the grand surroundings to their liking. They have won their last five fixtures at the venue, their last defeat coming against Saracens in December 2011.

In contrast, the Exiles have won only once on their last nine visits to Twickenham in all tournaments, when they defeated Saracens in the London Double Header in 2010.

The last seven fixtures between the two clubs in all competitions have seen Harlequins victorious on six occasions. The Exiles only win in that time being 18-13 at the Madejski Stadium in Round 5 of last season's Premiership, while they haven't recorded a win against the Harlequins at Twickenham since 2006.
