What's hot: The coaching set-up. The London Irish backroom staff is brimming with players that have pulled on the green shirt - headed up by director of rugby Nick Kennedy, Declan Danaher, Paul Hodgson, George Skivington and even part-time technical director Brendan Venter have all represented the Exiles during their playing careers.
They know what it means to play for the club and they are all passionate about making it the best side they can be.
Premiership all-time leading points scorer Charlie Hodgson has also linked up with the club ahead of the new season as kicking coach.
While he may be on the periphery, Venter, one of the key men in turning Saracens from mid-table big spenders into double champions of Europe will have a huge say in the turnaround of the club, building on the core DNA instilled in the club and making a culture that will take them into a highly-competitive Premiership campaign.
What's not: Gelling a squad in such a short time period. With the Championship play-off still existing Kennedy and his team had to spend most of their summer 'break' preparing for the new season.
The club has also had visa issues with a number of their foreign players meaning that the time the squad has had as a whole, including their 11 newcomers, has been limited.
Not a great start for a team many already feel will be up against it this campaign. What's changed: London Irish have prepared themselves for the challenges that lie ahead by bringing in a number of players with big game experience including Scotland prop Gordon Reid, Australian international Saia Fainga'a, Italy's Luke McLean as well as Darren Dawidiuk from Gloucester and former Saracen Petrus Du Plessis.
Ins: Gordon Reid Glasgow , Lasha Lomidze Kransy Yar , Ben Meehan Rebels , Napolioni Nalaga Lyon , Saia Fainga'a Brumbies , Luke McLean Treviso , Petrus du Plessis Saracens , Manasa Saulo Toulon , Filo Paulo Treviso , Jake Schatz Rebels , Darren Dawidiuk Gloucester.

Aug 27 - Bath Bristol. Out: David Barnes retired , Jacques Boussuge Brive , Danny Grewcock retired , Shontayne Hape London Irish , Butch James Lions , Aaron Jarvis Ospreys , Ignacio Fernandez Lobbe released , Peter Short Exeter , Luke Watson Southern Kings.
BBC Radio Bristol's Damian Derrick:. Now in sole charge, Sir Ian McGeechan's influence on Bath can already be seen with the whole squad returning fitter and leaner.
Among the notable additions to the squad are England international Dave Attwood and Ulster's Ryan Caldwell in the second row, and flanker Carl Fearns, who have already made an impression on their new team-mates.
They might have lost the likes of South African fly-half Butch James and back-rower Luke Watson, but with All Black Stephen Donald and Springbok Francois Louw arriving post World Cup, they have adequate replacements.
Bath will be without Matt Banahan, Lewis Moody, Lee Mears and David Wilson, who are on England duty, but they have known this would probably be the case and should not miss them unduly.
Fans will expect to see progression from the group stages of the Heineken Cup, having not achieved it for two years, and a top-four Premiership finish.
BBC Radio Bristol have full commentary of every Bath match this season. Position last season: Eighth. Coaches: Rob Baxter head coach , Ali Hepher backs , Ricky Pellow skills.
Club captain: Tom Hayes. Aug 13 - Connacht Exeter. Aug 20 - Cornish Pirates Exeter. Aug 27 - Exeter Scarlets.
Leaving: Ryan Davis Wasps , Eoghan Grace Connacht , Josh Matavesi racing Metro , Nemani Nadolo released. BBC Radio Devon's Nigel Walrond:.
Chiefs will be seeking to build on their superb inaugural Premiership campaign and further consolidate their position in the top flight. Wales tight-head prop Craig Mitchell and Argentina winger Gonzalo Camacho have arrived from Ospreys and Harlequins respectively, and will bolster the Chiefs after the World Cup.
Samoan centre Josh Tatupu, Australian duo Ben White and Myles Dorrian, and former England Sevens scrum-half Kevin Barrett are also very interesting acquisitions to increase the pressure on starting places.
With only three players lost to the World Cup Camacho, Mitchell and scrum-half Junior Poluleuligaga , Exeter will be keen to hit the ground running with opening fixtures against some of the league's big hitters while those teams are depleted.
BBC Radio Devon will have full commentary of every Exeter Chiefs game this season, on air and online. Position last season: Third.
Coaches: Bryan Redpath head coach , Carl Hogg forwards , John Brain rugby operations. Club captain: Luke Narraway. Aug 20 - Gloucester London Welsh.
Aug 26 - Gloucester 7 Russia. Players In: Nathan Charles Western Force , Dario Chistolini Petarca Rugby , Matias Cortese Pampas , Dave Markham Leicester , Dan Murphy London Irish , Nick Runciman London Welsh , Tom Savage Hartpury.
Out: Dave Attwood Bath , Olivier Azam released , Pierre Capdeville released , Alasdair Dickinson Sale , Paul Doran-Jones Northampton , Jordi Pasqualin Newcastle , Nicky Robinson Wasps.
BBC Radio Gloucestershire's Andrew Pugh:. The retirement of hooker Olivier Azam, and the loss of Dave Attwood, Paul Doran-Jones and Nicky Robinson has been partly mitigated by the key signings of Argentine hooker Matias Cortese and South Africa-born Italy A prop Dario Chistolini.
Others, promoted from the Gloucester academy, will have their opportunity alongside a core of experienced players.
How the Kingsholm outfit will fare in both the Premiership and their return to the Heineken Cup may hinge to an extent on the precociously talented youngster Freddie Burns at fly-half.
If he can demonstrate the game management skills so evident from Robinson last season, and release Gloucester's pacy, game-breaking backs like Charlie Sharples, James-Simpson Daniel and Henry Trinder, the Cherry and Whites could again finish in the Premiership's top four.
BBC Radio Gloucestershire will have live commentary of every Gloucester match this season on air and online. Position last season: Seventh.
Coaches: Conor O'Shea director of rugby , John Kingston head coach , Collin Osborne assistant. Club captain: Chris Robshaw.
