One to watch

Taulupe Faletau (Bath Rugby) 

Faletau has continued to make his mark on the Aviva Premiership this season, after starring for the British & Irish Lions over the summer in New Zealand. The Welsh international has gone from strength-to-strength and is undoubtedly one of the form players in his position.

Henry Trinder (Gloucester Rugby)

Trinder has bounced back from a series of serious injuries toshow how valuable an asset he is to the Cherry & Whites. The centre showed his worth with two memorable tries in the 29-24 victory against Northampton Saints.
