How many Saracens players make our XV?

11. Cadan Murley (Harlequins)

Murley belongs within the Jack Nowell bracket of hustling, bustling wing. His resourcefulness is a big energy, and a few chop-tackles on Nemani Nadolo demonstrated a mix of bravery and technical prowess. Other players across the Premiership could build glitzier spotlight reels. This man, who trotted over for Harlequins’ second attempt, produces persistently and has loved a nice season.

10. Owen Farrell (Saracens)

Still simply 20, Charlie Atkinson has combatted concussion points and a few nasty accidents. He is evidently resilient, and seemed the half as Wasps swatted away Worcester. Paddy Jackson steered Irish to a different eye-catching win. Farrell will get the nod after a second-half tour de drive towards Exeter, which bent a tough match in direction of Saracens.

9. Alex Mitchell (Northampton Saints)

When he’s working sizzling, Mitchell is so troublesome to comprise and Northampton typically lower unfastened. That proved to be the case towards Bath, because the intrepid scrum-half weaved via for his personal try to picked passes to arrange extra. The lifted shoulder ball to Matt Proctor within the first half was significantly candy. Danny Care’s intelligence within the kicking exchanges helped Harlequins edge Tigers.

1. Will Goodrick-Clarke (London Irish)

There had been good moments for a variety of Irish backs at Kingston Park, however the Exiles’ beligerent scrummaging laid the foundations for a 42-14 thrashing. Goodrick-Clarke, introduced into the England camp over the latest Six Nations, was as influential as anybody over his 63 minutes on the sector. His aspect had been 35-14 in entrance when he was changed.

2. Harry Thacker (Bristol Bears)

Charlie Clare, Agustín Creevy and Jamie George all went nicely on an excellent weekend for hookers. Thacker’s vitality and instinct give him the place. He accomplished eight passes over an 80-minute outing, which was the identical quantity as Gloucester centre Mark Atkinson and summed up his prominence.

3. Will Collier (Harlequins)

An ideal day within the eyes of a tighthead prop would in all probability represent some influential scrummaging and a tidy attempt, ideally that includes skilful dealing with. Collier fitted all of that into his sport towards Leicester, selecting up Alex Dombrandt’s offload superbly forward of his rating. Dan Cole and Ellis Genge appeared to suppose he was ‘cranking’ illegally in his set-piece battle with Francois van Wyk scrum. The officers didn’t see it that approach and Harlequins benefitted, with Collier’s excellent type persevering with.
