The second round of the 2012/2013 season’s Aviva Premiership was completed this weekend. In the first match of the weekend London Welsh were comprehensively beaten by Harlequins, who scored six tries to none. In the last game, which was played on Sunday, Northampton Saints managed to scrape through against a brave Exeter Chiefs outfit.

    Good away win for Gloucester who aren’t always the strongest away from Kingsholm.

    Glad to see Saints held on against Exeter. Was trying to watch it on tv, but eish, a looooong afternoon!
