Which ground has the best atmosphere? Amazing architecture? The perfect view? RUCK’s Steven Smith, who recently completed the full set, ranks every Gallagher Premiership ground based on his own personal visits…

12. London Irish – Madejski Stadium (3.92/10)

In five words or less: Archetypal 21st century ground

Most recent visit: 2016

Best feature: Fully enclosed and modern

Worst feature: Always empty and not even in London.
