It was a busy few days of non-stop rugby action, but which 15 players make our team of the weekend?
Fullback: Semesa Rokoduguni (Army)

Wing: Junior Bulumakau (Army)

Centre: Nick Tompkins (Saracens)
The young centre was the catalyst of a much improved second half against Bristol with a try and all-around fine display.
Centre: Joe Marchant (Harlequins)
England call-up Marchant capped an excellent night by racing under the posts for a well-taken try. We’ve moved him to inside centre to accommodate him and Tompkins.

Wing: Jack Nowell (Exeter Chiefs)
Exeter coach Ali Hepner believes Nowell’s selection for the British Lions has given the England star an extra boost and he proved too hot to handle with an all-action performance and a try against Northampton in a 36-12 win at Sandy Park.

Fly-half: Nick Evans (Harlequins)
Nick Evans waved goodbye to the Harlequins faithful with a style that has become the hallmark of his nine years in south-west London, orchestrating a 32-13 victory against Wasps that boosts their hopes of a top-six finish and a seat at Europe’s top table. An honourable mention also for Freddie Burns who was fabulous for Leicester Tigers!

Scrum-half: Sonatane Takulua (Newcastle)
It was the Sonatane Takulua show at Kingston Park on Friday night with the Tongan star scoring all Newcastle’s points, including a late converted try to hold off Worcester and keep the Falcons in the frame for Champions Cup rugby.
