Old Albanian rubbed salt in the London Irish Wild Geese wound with an overwhelming 61-5 win.

The Irish have already been relegated from National Two South after a disappointing season but OAs showed no mercy, scoring with almost all of their opportunities.

Vice captain Dan Watt scored over half the OA points with four of the nine tries and seven conversions.

Albanians were two tries to the good courtesy of Watt and Tobias Munday before Richard Townsend crossed for the hosts’ only score.

From there it was pretty much one way traffic with Albanian showing too much power in the tight phases and too much guile in broken play.

Charlie Hughes, Alex Ricci and Luke Barber were the other men who crossed the Irish whitewash while Morgan Thompson added a conversion.

This morale boosting performance should hearten the side before the visit of fourth-placed Henley on Saturday.

They notched 10 tries against Guernsey but gave away a bonus point in the process.
