NEC Harlequins top tackler in September, Pat Sanderson enjoyed an excellent month for Mark Evans' team, scoring one of Quins tries in the 20-16 defeat at Heywood Road (27th September 2002). He followed this up with a try in the 47-23 victory over Newcastle Falcons at the Stoop last Saturday (5th October 2002).
Making the second most metres by any flanker this season, Sanderson also beat the equal most number of defenders by any player in his position in the opening month of the Zurich Premiership.
