Henry Arundell scores try one minute after coming on for London Irish

As he did in the summer with England, speedster Henry Arundell didn’t take long to make an impact as he ran in for a try a minute after coming on for London Irish.

The exiles made a winning start to the new Premiership season as they ran in seven tries at Brentford to earn a bonus-point victory over Worcester. 

On a subdued day in west London in the wake of Queen Elizabeth II’s passing, Irish were too good for the Warriors.

Arundell came off the bench to cross twice, while Will Joseph and ex-Warriors hooker Agustin Creevy also scored.

One fan commented: “First touch was a fly-hack, second was to pick the ball up from said fly-hack and dot it down over the line.”

“Kids a freak,” said a second.


Fans Rank All 13 Gallagher Premiership Stadiums from Worst to Best

Stadiums are a sanctified place for rugby fans. The importance of a stadium for a fan is inexplicable, it’s like a home for a supporter.

These stadiums are ranked according to the fan ratings on various websites such as rugbygroundmap.com, TripAdvisor etc.

Here are the 13 Premiership stadiums from worst to best.

#13. AJ Bell Stadium (Sale Sharks) – 3.5/10

GOOD REVIEW: Very impressive stadium, clean and very close to motorway for a quick getaway. Parking was a little pricey but all part of the day out.

BAD REVIEW: Came with the family, good atmosphere, stadium is OK. The food and drink was dreadful – hot chocolate was undrinkable. However the worst part of the trip was the car park £10 to park in a massive puddle in the mud, penned in for almost an hour post match!

#12. Ricoh Arena (Wasps) – 4/10

GOOD REVIEW: The indoor Fan Village is excellent, hotel good value for money, and Casino offers good food until late at night.

BAD REVIEW: Don’t come here. Wasps rugby union and railway service is a joke. Neither give a monkeys about people that are paying for the service they are paying for the service that is supposed to be provided

#11. Allianz Park (Saracens) – 4.5/10

GOOD REVIEW: Great place to watch my team play rugby ! Great atmosphere,good seating and plenty of toilets. Would highly recommend coming here to watch a game

BAD REVIEW: The facilities are beyond disgusting. None of the ladies toilets inside work and the outside ones have no paper and stink.

#10. Sixways (Worcester Warriors) – 5/10

GOOD REVIEW: Always a lot of fun Great atmosphere never any trouble great for all groups stag hen family or just the boys.

BAD REVIEW: The rugby experience is just poor. Drinks too expensive, queues too long and food prices also
