London Irish player, Mike Catt has the chance to win his second European medal on Sunday 21 May in the European Challenge Cup final.

Not many players have won a Heineken Cup and a European Challenge Cup medal but London Irish back, Mike Catt, has the opportunity to achieve this.

In 1998 Catt played with the Bath Rugby who over came Brive by a single point in the Heineken Cup final. Eight years later the 34 year old has the chance to win a second European medal, this time with London Irish in the European Challenge Cup final.

London Irish are in preparation for the final of the European Challenge Cup against Gloucester, and have already secured a place in next season’s Heineken Cup, by qualifing for the Guinness Premiership semi-finals. With 28 Heineken Cup caps to his credit with his former club Bath Rugby, Catt’s experience would be valuable to London Irish next season.

Catt has played a key role in the London Irish European campaign this season, capped by his man of the match performance in the European Challenge Cup semi-final. With his two-year contract due to run out at the end of the season, it has been reported that London Irish would like Catt to remain at Madejski Stadium.
