London Irish's European Challenge Cup hopes were ended despite them coming from behind to beat Krasny in Tbilisi.

Krasny led through Lasha Malaguradze's penalty, but Matt Williams crossed for the visitors soon after.

Viktor Arhip sent Krasny 10-7 ahead at the break and Grigory Tsnobiladze then added their second try of the game.

Tom Fowlie clawed Irish ahead with a pair of tries before Ben Loader crossed, but Stade Francais' win over Edinburgh ended the Exiles' hopes.
