5 England hopefuls who impressed in the Premiership final

We take a look at five England hopefuls who impressed during the 2022/23 Gallagher Premiership final between Saracens and Sale Sharks.

#1. Owen Farrell (Saracens)

The fly-half delivered a captain’s performance, showcasing his exceptional distribution skills throughout the game.

He expertly managed the flow of the match and displayed resolute defense. Notably, his decisive rip in contact resulted in Tuilagi losing possession, ultimately leading to Malins’ impressive 50:22 play.

Furthermore, Farrell orchestrated Malins’ try with a beautifully executed delayed short pass and later showcased his own brilliance with a remarkable 50:22 move at the 38th minute.

Thriving under the pressure of the big occasion, he emerged victorious in his individual battle against George Ford, leading Saracens to their sixth title.
