TOPSY Ojo spoke of his delight after breaking the London Irish appearance record in Saturday’s stunning 44-7 win at Stade Francais.

The 32-year-old winger played his 281st game in an Exiles shirt to beat the all-time record previously held by Justin Bishop.

Ojo capped the occasion with a brace of tries in the impressive European Challenge Cup victory in Paris.

He beamed: “It was a great game to be part of and everyone stepped up and did a fantastic job, so it made it a memorable game for me.

“To come to France and win at any time is special and we’re delighted.”

Conor Gilsenan’s try gave Irish an early lead before Ojo crossed twice in a five-minute spell including an interception try from inside his own 22 to give the visitors a 19-0 lead.

Bakary Meite reduced the arrears with a converted score while Exiles were down to 14 men following Ben Meehan’s sin-binning for a professional foul.

But Meehan soon made amends by notching Irish’s fourth try to seal a bonus point for a 24-7 lead at the interval.

Exiles then withstood a barrage of Stade attacks before grabbing three more unanswered tries in the final 10 minutes through Lovejoy Chawatama, Ben Ransom and Scott Steele.

Ojo added: “It was nice to get on the scoresheet twice and I guess you couldn’t write the script, but it was a huge team effort.

“We started the game well and we finished the game well, which was very pleasing to see, so testament to the lads.

“It was a squad effort and everyone played their part.”

Irish will be hoping to end a run of five straight Aviva Premiership defeats this Saturday when they travel to Saracens (3pm).
