1 – Joe Marler (Harlequins)
Marler returned from his rib injury with a strong performance against Sale on Friday night, he was solid in the carry and scored a good try.
2 – Jamie George (Saracens)
George was magnificent against Wasps, scoring an impressive hat-trick in a man-of-the-match performance. George is putting yet more pressure on Dylan Hartley for the England jersey.
3 – Juan Figallo (Saracens)
The Argentine prop exploited some holes in Wasps’ defence on Sunday was solid in the set-piece.
4 – Charlie Matthews (Harlequins)
Filled in the shoes of the absent Horwill very well, robust in the carry and made two eye-catching interceptions.
5 – George Kruis (Saracens)
Kruis was influential in a very dominant Saracens lineout and was consistent in the other areas of set-piece. Another position where Eddie Jones has some difficult decisions to make.
6 – Zach Mercer (Bath)
Mercer was again very good for Bath on Saturday, bursting Worcester’s defence before feeding Tapuai to score and was consistent for the rest of the game.
7 – Will Evans (Leicester)
Evans in his first Premiership start of the season scored a good try and was solid defensively, making 24 tackles.
8 – Sam Simmonds (Exeter)
Simmonds returned from injury with a bang on Saturday scoring a lovely try in which he showed off his impressive pace to beat Newcastle’s defence.
9 – Danny Care (Harlequins)
Care was brilliant on Friday night with perfectly executed kicks which created two tries for Harlequins.
10 – Marcus Smith (Harlequins)
Smith again was instrumental in his organisation of Harlequins as they beat Sale convincingly on Friday night and was also sound from the tee, landing a couple of difficult touchline kicks.
11 – Tim Visser (Harlequins)
Visser was very good for Harlequins on Friday night, showing some skill to finish two great tries which helped his side get a bonus-point win over Sale.
12 – Billy Twelvetrees (Gloucester)
Twelvetrees and Trinder proved a difficult centre combination for Northampton to deal with. The former England centre was impressive, scoring his own try.
13 – Henry Trinder (Gloucester)
Trinder was excellent for Gloucester on Saturday, scoring two tries and tested Northampton’s defence on multiple occasions.
14 – Jonny May (Leicester)
May was again excellent on Saturday, making 147 metres and scoring a try after receiving an exquisite Toomua pass.
15 – Jason Woodward (Gloucester)
Woodward continued to display his good attacking threat and his work in the air on Saturday, scoring a try and helping his side to a good victory over Northampton.
