London Irish name cup side
London Irish have made three personnel and two positional changes to their starting line-up for the Tetley's Bitter Cup semi final against Northampton on Saturday.
Ireland Under 21 scrum half Kieran Campbell returns on the right wing after missing the league defeat by Leicester two weeks ago, while Richard Kirke returns at hooker having recovered from a calf injury. Rob Gallacher, who missed the game against Leicester as he was in Hong Kong with the England sevens side returns at No.8. Ryan Strudwick who had filled in at No.8 moves forward and Jarrod Cunningham switches from the left wing to fly half, which means there is no place in the side for former All Black Stephen Bachop.
