It was a soggy afternoon at Twickenham, but pre-match favourites Saracens and Harlequins fought off the wind and rain to secure victories against possible relegation rivals Worcester and Bristol.
Bristol made their return to the top flight after a seven-year absence, and despite falling short of the mark, showed glimpses of brilliance. They'll be a welcome addition to the Premiership.
Meanwhile, at Franklin's Gardens, Northampton waited too long to stage a comeback and George Ford helped Bath to a narrow victory.
So as summer seems to have come to an abrupt end, we'll leave you there to enjoy your Saturday night.
BUT, we're back tomorrow with more live action - Wasps v Exeter (15:00 BST). See you then.
