Week 1 Aviva Premiership: Forward Passes, Rib Ticklers and Hookers

Week 1 has passed us by like a flash and every game (apart from Saracens v Worcester ) was a close encounter. There is lots to talk about including multiple forward passes which can be seen in the Quins highlights and Tommy Taylor getting his ribs re-arranged, however we have just picked out a couple points that we want your opinion on below:

Hookers, Hookers and more Hookers:

What has happened in the last few years?? England have somehow become a breeding ground for high quality hookers. Tommy Taylor, Luke Cowan-Dickie, Tom Youngs, Harry Thacker, Dylan Hartley, Jamie George and Jack Walker… to name a few. Tommy Taylor’s Man of the Match  can only improve his chances of building on the single cap he has for England. Look our for this lovely bunch across the whole season.

Closer than a Turkish Shave:

We have potentially learnt just from the 1st week that the relegation battle is going to be very close. Newcastle, Bristol and Worcester have all been ear marked for the battle however from the first weeks results that could change. Who do you think will be relegated this season? The same can be said for the top spot, yes Saracens looked dominant yet again but Tigers, Bath and Wasps are looking threatening.

It has not disappointed and is swaying us to believe this year could be the most exciting premiership season to date.
