Booth relieved at win
Exiles boss happy top end losing streak
"The road has been too long with so many defeats... (This season) has been very frustrating, we have lost around seven games in the last five minutes.
Quotes of the week
London Irish coach Toby Booth expressed relief after his side ended a seven-match run of Premiership defeats with a 25-16 win at Worcester on Saturday.
"I'm delighted for the players," said the coach, who confirmed he would remain at the club next season. "The road has been too long with so many defeats.
"We adapted well to the conditions, we controlled the game and didn't let them get going.
"(This season) has been very frustrating, we have lost around seven games in the last five minutes.
"Today it was a conscious decision to pick 14 players who will be with us next season as we've got to fast track them into getting Premiership experience."
The scoreline flattered Worcester, who only showed any real fight in the final quarter when Marcel Garvey and Miles Benjamin ran in late tries.
Worcester coach Richard Hill was heavily critical of his side's first-half showing.
"We were dire in the first half," he said. "We sharpened up after the interval.
"Shaun Perry made a considerable difference coming on at half-time as he helped with his leadership and energy and we restored a little bit of pride in the second half."
Worcester's top-flight status had been secured with Newcastle's defeat on Friday and Hill admitted that might have had an effect on his side.
"I don't know why we were so lacklustre," he added. "Maybe it was that result, but it was a very disappointing performance because we don't like losing at home."
Hill also revealed Dale Rasmussen was not badly hurt after the player received oxygen and was helped from the field following a heavy collision.
Hill said: "He's ok, but it is not the best way to finish your last home game."
