Exiles facing Heineken Cup exit

David Paice

London Irish gave themselves a mountain to climb if they are to qualify for the Heineken Cup quarter-finals after Racing Metro bounced back from their loss in Paris last week with a 25-19 victory in Reading.

Racing wing Sereli Bobo crossed for a try and fly-half Jonathan Wisniewski kicked 20 points with three penalties, three drop-goals and a conversion to settle the Pool Two clash.

Hooker David Paice got a try for London Irish with the last move of the game and wing Tom Homer kicked 14 points with four penalties and a conversion, but the hosts fell short.
