It was a truly Super Sunday in Aviva Premiership Rugby as London Irish and Leicester Tigers both earned dramatic wins live on BT Sport.
Irish secured their second win of the league season with a 22-9 success over Worcester Warriors, while Tigers earned 28-20 bonus-point triumph at Saracens.
Plenty of players, past and present, took to social media to give their thoughts on a thrilling afternoon of action and here’s some of our favourites.
Alex Lewington made his 100th appearance in a London Irish jersey and marked the occasion with a fantastic victory at the Madejski Stadium.
Thank you for all the kind messages and well wishes today. It’s been an honour to wear the green jersey 100 times and made even more special by the boys securing a win to mark the occasion 🙌🍀
Scott Steele was understandably thrilled with the win, while the triumph also meant an extra few tasks for director of rugby Nick Kennedy at full-time.
But it was Arno Botha who picked up the man of the match award on Sunday and he gave his immediate post-match reaction.
The win came at a cost though as James Marshall revealed his ribs were on the sore side after a big tackle from opposite number Josh Adams.
Meanwhile, Worcester Warriors’ Alan Solomons was quick to switch focus to his side’s next game against Leicester Tigers in Round 17.

Speaking of the Tigers, front-row pair Marcos Ayerza and Greg Bateman both took to social media after Leicester’s first-ever league win at Allianz Park
There was some running repairs needed on hooker Tom Youngs at full-time though with coach Geordan Murphy on hand to offer his expertise.

Telusa Veainu’s stunning individual try was the main thing to catch the eye of the injured Ellis Genge and former Leicester Tiger Lewis Moody.
It was a landmark occasion for scrum-half Sam Harrison as he made his 100th Aviva Premiership Rugby appearance while Schalk Brits reached 150 caps for Saracens.
Not a great day at the office but Thank you guys. It’s a honour.
Best rugby decision to come and play for Saracens and in the Prem. 👍👍😉
At the other end of the experience scale, Rotimi Segun made his Aviva Premiership Rugby debut, much to the delight of Nick Isiekwe, while Max Malins showed his potential with a pair of fine tries.
