6 of the Best Moments From the Weekend’s rugby as Danny Cipriani and Stuart Hogg star

With the Gallagher Premiership and the Guinness Pro 14 kicking off over the weekend there were plenty of talking points and great moments to take note of.

Here are six of the best moments from the weekend’s rugby action…

1. Best try

Sale Sharks’ Marland Yarde made it a return to remember against former club Harlequins with a sizzling 50-yard dash.

2. Best assist

Danny Cipriani put his off-field problems behind him as he played a crucial role in helping his new Gloucester side to an opening round victory in the Gallagher Premiership.

Gloucester beat the Northampton Saints 27-16 at Kingsholm on Saturday to get their season off to a good start.

However, all the headlines from this game have gone to Cipriani who produced a stunning pass to Charlie Sharples for a game-changing try.

The 30-year-old received the ball on the 22m line before sending a floating skip pass to Sharples on the right wing.

3. Best tackle

A stand-out moment from the clash between Racing and Clermont this weekend came when Donnacha Ryan thundered into Loni Uhila after a hospital pass left him exposed.
