TOM’S SAINTS RATINGS
Two tries and a fine all-round showing. He looks like another superb signing from Saints boss Jim Mallinder - 9/10
Made a cracking break for Wilson’s first try and looked sharper than he had in any of the previous four games - 8
A steady showing against his former club, and certainly the result he would have wanted. Bragging rights... - 7
Another powerful display, without the headlines this time. But he continued his fine start to life as a Saint. 7
Nasty bang on the head seemed to quieten the Russian and there’s surely much more to come from him - 6
Had a mixed night with the boot, but still delivered 14 points and can be happy with his night’s work, overall - 7
Interesting battle with England rival Joe Simpson, and probably just came out on top as Saints dominated - 7
Typically dominant display from the powerhouse prop, who was one of the game’s better performers as he carried really well - 8
The captain was in good form once again, picked up a beauty of a black eye, and will have impressed watching England boss Stuart Lancaster - 7
Fairly good night in the scrum but probably hasn’t done enough to keep Brian Mujati out of the side next week - 6
Showed his style and substance with some fleet-footedness and some standard big hits - 7
Night soured by what looks to be a bad shin injury but he had done well enough until being carted off in the second half - 7
Saw 15 tackle bags in front of him, and hit almost every one. A big performance from the big man - 8
The England flanker gets better with every game that passes and he made a couple of second-half surges which could have resulted in tries - 7
Steady if unspectacular. He gets through a lot of work, which benefits the team - 6
