Talk of summer tours is unwelcome bunkum to those who see club matters as paramount for the next few weeks, and that includes Leicester's newly-named British and Irish Lions squad member Tom Youngs. "Harlequins will be a fantastic game, we'll up our levels and we owe them from a couple of games where they've got the better of us," the hooker said of this weekend's play-off semi-final at Welford Road. "I want to win something with my club and that's the same for everyone. Whenever the season's done, the Lions will sink in. I've got a lot to concentrate on here and a lot to still improve on."

<b>1 - Mako Vunipola (Saracens):</b> The England international had a very impressive game at Twickenham, and he took on Ulster's defence from the start with an impressive five carries in the first eight minutes. Despite some problems early on in the scrum, the 22-year-old readjusted and coped with the pressure put on by John Afoa superbly in the second-half.
