Harlequins launched its new Membership Scheme three weeks ago and already over 1,700 memberships have been taken out for next season, including over 200 by new supporters.
Sitting in 5th position and just three points ahead of Irish in 7th, Quins will be looking to secure a second win this season over their Reading rivals, but the London team know that it will be an extremely tough challenge.
Last week's try scorer, Joe Gray is looking forward to making the journey to Reading on Saturday:
"In heavy conditions and against a tough team, we had to work hard last week for the win. I was happy with our set pieces and our defence was strong. When a Sale player made a line break, the boys were there to cover each others' backs.
"I was pretty chuffed with my first Premiership try, but credit must be given to the rest of the boys, especially Maurie Fa'asavalu for helping to set it up for me.
"London Irish will be a really tough challenge for us on Saturday. We know that they will come up hard in defence, so we will have to keep our depth and run hard to make ground.
"The set pieces are going to be key, they take pride in their line-out so we will really have to be at our best to break it down.
"They have some key players such as Seilala Mapusua, the big Samoan centre, who is not just strong in contact and in defence, but also a great runner and passer of the ball. Nick Kennedy is a real line-out specialist and Stephan Armitage is great in the breakdown.
"We know they are a good side but we will go out there on Saturday and play our own game at our own tempo and hopefully come away with a good result"
