Fly-half: Max Malins (Bristol Bears) – Wearing the 10 jersey for the first time since joining Bristol in the summer on loan from Saracens, the fly-half was quite simply sensational in a losing effort against Wasps.
Scrum-half: Dan Robson (Wasps) – Showed impeccable control with his kicking game and bust a gut to catch up with speedster Zach Kibirige for his try. Also made 54 metres, which was more than any other Wasps players.
Prop: Beno Obano (Bath RFC) – The prop fronted up and dominated against the huge Sale side with their South African reinforcements. Also made 12 tackles in an outstanding defensive effort.
Hooker: Tom Dunn (Bath RFC) – The lineout continues to be a potent weapon for the Black, Blue and Whites, and the hooker was right in the middle of every controntation when the sides came together, making 13 tackles.
Prop: Dan Cole (Leicester Tigers) -Although the tighthead didn’t make a single carry in the derby, his dominant scrummaging and no-nonsense 10 tackles in defence made him a standout performer for the Tigers.
