Quins show their quality

On Friday night, Harlequins secured a bonus-point win with a comfortable win over Sale.


The combination of England scrum half Danny Care and wing Tim Visser got two of the Quins tries.

But they didn't have it all their own way, with Sharks full back Mike Haley scoring one of the tries of the weekend.

England wing Jonny May got his now customary try.

England Under 20 flanker Will Evans got one of the Tigers scores and gave his thoughts afterwards.

A lovely Brew

Bath downed bottom side Worcester with wing Aled Brew going over twice.

Not on the field this week, Matt Banahan got behind the mic to interview the two-try wing. Fly half Josh Lewis got his first taste of Premiership action following his summer move from Scarlets.

The talented Mr George
