In a testament to their dominant Gallagher Premiership campaign, Northampton Saints have secured a remarkable five players in the prestigious Premiership Rugby Team of the Season. Spearheaded by the prolific Ollie Sleightholme, who finished as the league’s top try scorer, the Saints’ contingent includes Curtis Langdon, Alex Coles, Courtney Lawes, and Fin Smith.

Lawes and Smith were both nominated for the coveted Player of the Season award, underscoring the depth of talent within the Saints’ ranks. The Premiership Rugby Team of the Season also features several other standout performers, including newly crowned Player of the Season Henry Slade of Exeter Chiefs, and Immanuel Feyi-Waboso, the Breakthrough Player of the Season.

Bath and Harlequins each contribute two representatives, with Fin Baxter and Thomas du Toit manning the prop positions. In the backline, Bath’s Ben Spencer earns a spot at scrum-half, while Harlequins’ Tyrone Green secures the fullback role.

Rounding out the impressive lineup are Saracens’ Ben Earl, Leicester Tigers’ Jasper Wiese, and Bristol Bears’ Benhard Janse van Rensburg, showcasing the wealth of talent across the Gallagher Premiership.

The absence of players from Gloucester, Newcastle Falcons, and Sale Sharks, despite the latter’s third-place finish, underscores the fierce competition and depth of quality throughout the league.

As the Premiership Rugby season draws to a close, this all-star team serves as a fitting tribute to the exceptional individual performances that have defined the 2022-23 campaign.
