After a busy sixth weekend, who makes our Gallagher Premiership Team of the Week? Unsurprisingly, Saracens and Worcester stars headline our selection…
Fullback: JONAH HOLMES (Leicester Tigers)
It was something of a surprise to see Jonah Holmes named at full-back in the Leicester Tigers team ahead of the derby with Northampton Saints at Twickenham on Saturday.
But after his starring role in the 23-15 victory, it won’t be a surprise if Holmes features there again when the opportunity arises.
Holmes’ running power and awareness set up both Tigers tries at Twickenham, Ben Youngs and Jordan Olowofela cashing in.
Jonah Holmes is running this game 🔥

Winger: CHARLIE SHARPLES (Gloucester)
Centre: HENRY SLADE (Exeter Chiefs)
Unstructured excellence. Jack Nowell going from far edge to midfield (where he calls for an in-field kick from Henry Slade) and back to the far edge. Stuart Townsend hitting the ruck. Matt Kvesic’s pick-up. AND DOES SLADE CHIP IT TO HIMSELF AT THE START? pic.twitter.com/seRkNYHLLp
