Boxing Day's Aviva Premiership clash at the Madejski Stadium in Reading, might not appear to be the most glamorous in the fixture calendar, given that it features the bottom two sides, but it is probably the most important game of the season so far. London Irish made a solid start to the season, and with a bit more luck and clinical finishing, could have been amongst the early front runners. However, their form has slumped since the early rounds, and they find themselves in eleventh position in the table at Christmas.

The visitors to Reading, are newly promoted London Welsh, who have found like extremely tough since their return to the top flight of English club rugby, and have yet to win a match in any competition this season. The two protagonists on Boxing Day are separated by just one place on the table, but 11 points. Victory for the Irish appears as if it will almost certainly condemn Welsh to an immediate return to the Championship.

If Welsh can just sneak that first win of the campaign, then not only will it almost half the gap on the Irish, then it may also provide them with the self belief and momentum to drag themselves out of the predicament that they are currently in.
