Homer stars for Exiles

London Irish ended a seven-match losing streak in the Aviva Premiership with a 25-16 victory over an out-of-sorts Worcester.

There was to be no fairytale farewell at Sixways for departing favourites Marcel Garvey, Miles Benjamin, Kai Horstmann and Dale Rasmussen as Worcester produced one of their worst performances of the season, as if they were already content with having secured their Premiership status for next season.

It was not until the final quarter that they showed any real fight, with late touchdowns from Garvey and Benjamin giving some solace to their supporters. For most of the match Irish were comfortably the better, with Joe Ansbro, Tom Homer - who contributed 15 points - and Delon Armitage crossing for tries.
