#Gallery - London Irish return to top tier of English rugby with thrilling victory

LONDON IRISH marked their return to the top flight of English rugby on Saturday with a thrilling victory over Harlequins in the Aviva Premiership at Twickenham.

The Exiles ran out 39 - 29 winners in an entertaining game, scoring four tries in their bonus point victory.

Supporters of London Irish were out in force on the day and had a great afternoon at the home of English rugby.

London Irish were relegated from the Aviva Premiership 16 months ago and spent last season in the Championship, but returned at the first attempt after successful campaign.
