Glasgow sacked Racing 92, Scarlets upstaged Toulon, Leinster embarrassed the Saints while Owen Williams and Jack Carty won games with last minute kicks. It’s your Champions Cup player of the week.
Exeter Cheif’s Henry Slade vs Bordeaux
Exeter needed a big performance from their side to keep their slim hopes alive and Slade delivered with 10 points from the kicking tee to see them to victory in France.
Scarlets’ Scott Williams vs. Toulon
Scored the all-important try as Scarlets defeated Toulon. He was always a threat in attack and put in five tackles in defence as Toulon with the likes of Nonu and Basteraud battering at the Scarlets throughout.
Glasgow’s Finn Russell vs. Racing 92
He put in an incredible performance as Glasgow defeated last year’s finalists Racing 92 on Friday. While Dan Carter struggled, Russell was immense, making 81 metres through 14 runs and beat 10 defenders. He also came up with a try assist.
Leicester’s Owen Williams vs. Munster
Williams kept Leicester ticking over with his kicks and his sensational kick from halfway gave them a valuable victory over Munster. Who needs tries with Williams in the team?
Connacht’s Jack Carty vs. Wasps
Carty’s kicking was questioned after last week’s defeat to Wasps and with him as their only fit kicker, it was fitting he should kick the winning points against Wasps in Galway.
Clermont’s Nick Abendanon vs. Ulster
Scored two tries in the opening 23 minutes for Clermont as they put Ulster to the sword. The running rugby of Clermont has shown his true ability after leaving Bath in 2014.
Saracens Schalk Burger vs. Sale
In a poor encounter with Sale, Burger was phenomenal as he linked up well in attack and was a thorn in the side of the Sharks’ attack throughout.
Leinster’s Sean Cronin vs. Northampton
Put in a man of the match performance, scoring one try, making over 60 metres and a real threat in providing an attacking platform for the Leinster backs.
