Gallagher Premiership team of the week: Round 6


  • 10. Marcus Smith (Harlequins)
  • 9. Ben Youngs (Leicester Tigers)

Leicestershire Live on Youngs: “Box kicked well throughout but it was his piece of magic in the 49th minute that really was the difference between the two sides. After seeing the space and calling Jasper Wiese to go blindside, he received the ball and ran a lovely line drawing in the Sale full-back before putting in Liebenberg in the corner.”

  • 1. Val Rapava-Ruskin (Gloucester)
  • 2. Jamie George (Saracens)
  • 3. Paul Hill (Northampton Saints)

Gloucestershire Live on Rapava-Ruskin: “Carried his form on from last week putting in an almighty shift. He scrummaged well and was a demon at ruck time, getting himself a couple of turnovers.”

Northampton Chronicle on Hill : “Savoured the fact Saints had plenty of space in this game as he carried well when he got the chance, popping up across the pitch and doing his job in the set piece also…”
