COURT­NEY LAWES Northamp­ton flanker

v

SAM UN­DER­HILL Bath flanker

This was Lawes in his pomp: fired-up, di­rect and an ever-present force around the park, even in at­tack where he did a pass­able im­per­son­ation of Tom Croft by lurk­ing on the wing be­fore fin­ish­ing ath­let­i­cally. Un­der­hill fought man­fully in a los­ing cause and will have done his Eng­land prospects lit­tle harm, but Lawes was in­spi­ra­tional on the night and won this con­test hands down.
