George Ford was the standout performer this season as Leicester won the Premiership title
A standout game
In October, Arlequins proved that lightning can strike twice after another epic win over Bristol, scoring eight tries and 45 unanswered points in the second half to win 52-24.
Grounds for pleasure
Bathing in the background if you ignore the squalid amenities and the local stalemate. Brentford for modern comfort and convenience. Kingsholm for Shed’s old fervor. StoneX Stadium for helpful volunteers.
A new sensation
Henry Arundell is a rookie but has barely played in the league so a more appropriate choice is Leicester forward Ollie Chessum, who scored a call-up to England and was the mainstay of the final.

Theo McFarland, a Samoa winger who hailed from Dallas and became a major asset in the Saracen back row, with the agility of a former international basketball player.
Have a nice goodbye
Faf de Klerk. What icon was Springbok for sale. Half of the scrum was a true superstar who always did her best and helped develop Raffi Quirke as a favor to England.

Exeter had been finalists for the past six years, but their possession game was neutralized and they finished seventh. Time will tell if it’s just a moment.
Wreck at The Rec
Bath has often been in disarray, starting the season with 10 defeats in the Premiership. There was internal unrest, management overhaul and turbulence at the management board level.
London Irish signed a contract with the Italian Danilo Fischetti from Zebra and it will definitely be an addition to the pedigree. He was outstanding in the Six Nations.
The best interlocutors
Fortunately, the era of bland cliche isn’t universal, thanks to Alex Sanderson, Rob Baxter, Ellis Genge, and Joe Marler. Insight, humor and anecdotes.
Sale Sharks rugby director Alex Sanderson made some interesting insights
Interestingly, five of Irish’s 24 games ended in a full square. They turned the late accusation into parity into an art form.
Chris Ashton’s record streak for Leicester came after his career seemed to be over when he was released by Worcester. How he used the chance to play.
Lewis Ludlow, Captain Gloucester, speaks from the bottom of his heart, and an hour in his company has shown that he is a natural, passionate, loyal leader.

The fight for fourth place was absorbing. Northampton scored a one-point win over Quins a week after Gloucester fell a point at Bristol to overshadow it.
The best pre-match music
Memories of Madchester on Sale. For people of a certain age, the sounds of the city were intended for Happy Saturdays and Sundays.
Simon Massie-Taylor as chief executive of the Premiership Rugby. After all, the organization has a progressive figure.

The messy structure of the season and the lack of a risk of relegation have meant too many empty games and excessive gaps between games in the last two months.
Player of the season
George Ford. Half the fly put aside frustration with England to drive the Leicester all season long, keeping them on top of the pile at all times. Majestic.
A fabulous finish
The sheer joy and disbelief of Freddie Burns at the end of Saturday’s finals were contagious. His day in the sun proved that good things happen to good people.
Leicester was first from September to June to take first place in the table and win the title. This seems to be a good result.
