But who stood out?
Here’s our team of the mid-week.
Fullback: Stuart Hogg (Exeter Chiefs) – Another strong performance from the Sotland captain against Gloucester. He made a stunning 104 metres and beat four defenders from his six carries before worryingly limping off.
Winger: Rotimi Segun (Saracens) – The powerful, explosive speedster caught the eye despite his sides defeat against Sale, scoring two tries in the process.
Centre: Semi Radradra (Bristol Bears) – Outstanding once again in attack, making 139 metres across the eighty minutes. Radradra and Piers O’Conor are forming a strong midfield for the Bears.
Centre: Josh Matavesi (Bath RFC) – Started at fly-half, but we’ve got him in his usual midfield position. This break alone warrants his inclusion.
Winger: Zach Kibirige (Wasps) – He was in fantastic form, making 93 metres from six carries, beating two defenders and scoring a try. A class act.
