Result: London Irish put Edinburgh to sword in Challenge Cup, Andrew Fenby scored three

Andrew Fenby grabs a hat-trick as London Irish score six tries past last season's finalists Edinburgh Rugby in the European Challege Cup.

London Irish smashed last year's finalists Edinburgh Rugby 38-6 in the European Challenge Cup this afternoon, with Andrew Fenby grabbing a hat-trick.

Greig Tonks kicked a couple of early penalties for the away side, but Fenby caught an interception and ran in to get London Irish their first points after 11 minutes.

Irish then found a gap straight from the kickoff and Fenby grabbed his second just one minute later, Shane Geraghty adding the conversion this time.

A lovely backs move from the home team saw Alex Lewington score his team's third, before Johnny Williams secured the bonus point for his side just before half time.

It was all Edinburgh after the break but they failed to make their dominance pay, and Aseli Tikoirotuma crossed for Irish halfway through the half.

Fenby then finished off his hat-trick with five minutes to go, following good work from Lewington which allowed the winger to cross untouched.

The wins sees Irish move to the top of their pool for the moment, with Edinburgh dropping down to third.
