Check out the highlights from the second round of the Premiership, which saw another exciting weekend of action.

Northampton Saints and London Irish opened proceedings on Saturday as the Midlanders responded well to last weekend’s defeat to Sale Sharks by overcoming the Exiles.

Early pacesetters

Speaking of Sale, they are the early pacesetters as they claimed their second bonus-point triumph in succession following a comfortable win over Bath, despite being down to 14 men after just eight minutes.

They are joined on two victories by Bristol Bears, who defeated Wasps, and Exeter Chiefs, who were too strong for financially-stricken Worcester Warriors.

Last season’s Premiership champions Leicester Tigers kick-started their campaign by beating Newcastle Falcons and, finally, the big London derby saw Saracens claim the spoils against Harlequins.
