David Flatmans’ Team of the Week… who makes the cut?
RUCK take you through David Flatmans’ Gallagher Premiership team of the week.
The Prem has just kicked off and was not short of impressive performances.
Some players stood out and caught the eye of the ex-Bath star.
Flatman put together his team of the week and has chosen a pretty attacking line-up.
Here is Flats’ selection for this week:
15. Aaron Morris (Harlequins)
14. Vereniki Goneva (Newcastle Falcons)
13. Henry Slade (Exeter Chiefs)
Flatman’s eye for bench impact saw Exeter replacement Henry Slade rewarded with the 13 jersey, the 25-year-old scoring his side’s bonus-point try against Leicester Tigers.
12. Ben Tapuai (Harlequins)
“Ben Tapuai’s brace formed the backbone of the Quins success against Sale and is the clear choice at inside centre.”
11. Luke Morahan (Bristol Bears)
Bristol Bears match-winner Luke Morahan, who starred in their opening night win over rivals Bath, was the first name on the team sheet and named as Flats’ player of the round.
Former Wallaby Morahan made 108 metres – the most of any player across Round One – his stunning surge and pass setting up Alapati Leiua’s try to clinch victory at Ashton Gate.
