“No wonder Jones doesn’t pick him” – 4 players who underperformed in the Premiership semi-finals

Given how underperformance can happen with any rugby star, even world-class players can face spells of poor performance.

Great rugby players can often jump back from poor spells easier than others. This will be the priority of the next four names from the world of rugby who played well below their abilities during the Gallagher Premiership semi-finals.

In the first game of the day, Saracens overcame a nine-point deficit and survived three second-half yellow cards to beat champions Harlequins 34-17 at the Stone X Stadium.

Later on, George Ford inspired Leicester to a 27-14 victory against Northampton in his final home game at Mattioli Woods Welford Road to send Tigers to the Premiership final against Saracens.

#1. Danny Care (Harlequins)

For all his attacking prowess and fantastic ability to dictate the tempo of the Quins attack, Care was targeted as the weak link in their defence by a a merciless Sarries side. One missed tackle in particular will give the former England scrum-half nightmares.
