The third round of the English Premiership did not go to script. The exciting match between Saracens and the Leicester Tigers was dull and tryless with the hueg crowd at Wembley not being treated to much quality at all. Bottom of the table London Welsh won for the first time with a one point home win over the Exeter Chiefs. The result should surprize many people are London Welsh was extremely poor in the first two rounds while Exeter has been establishing a solid reputation for itself. The result sees London Welsh move from 12th to 9th place with London Irish now in last position. The round featured players from the Americas in action. All of Argentina, Canada and the United States of America were represented.
The end of Northern England in the Aviva Premiership is a scary though but a real one as the only team from the North still in the competition is winless after three rounds and has struggled in all its matches. England intends on using Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Newcastle for Rugby World Cup 2015 but faces the real risk of none having teams in the Aviva Premiership. Sale is considered part of Manchester, the last remaining northern city represented.
