Looks like London Irish won’t being taking shi* off anyone this year. Their new sponsors Pump Technology on the other hand have perhaps a different approach on the ‘matter’.
The Aviva Premiership side recently announced a deal with these guys (who are specialists in providing pumps for pumping waste water and sewage) that will last up until the end of the 2017/18 season.
