• Sheedy scores 15 points after replacing Ian Madigan
Another weekend, another points fest. This one topped 80, the odd try in 11 earning Northampton their second win of the season. Under Chris Boyd, the improvement in their game has been obvious. Here, it yielded the full five points.
It meant Bristol’s first home loss on their return to the top flight fell at the third instalment, but they took two bonus points themselves to keep both sides nestled in the customary crowded mid-table.
