Greenwood's Favourite 5: Controversy in Connacht and farewell to Castro
Last Updated: 19/12/16 5:55pm
Will Greenwood has selected his favourite moments from a pulsating weekend of Champions Cup rugby including controversy in Connacht, Scarlets claiming the scalp of Toulon and Finn Russell gets Carter!
Round four started in style on Friday as Finn Russell produced a breath-taking display in Glasgow's second win over Racing 92 in seven days. The Scotland stand-off made All Blacks legend Dan Carter look ordinary as he put his hand up for a Lions seat.
From Glasgow to Galway, where Connacht's claimed a controversial late victory over Wasps. The Westerners won a penalty as the clock went red and their skipper John Muldoon convinced Mathieu Raynal that they were allowed to kick for touch under the new directives. They scored a try from the resultant lineout and Jack Carty's conversion sealed a dramatic win. The only problem is the new directive doesn't come into force until next August!
Onto Sunday and Leigh Halfpenny let his fellow Welshmen off the hook by missing a late penalty as the Scarlets held on for their first ever win over Toulon.
The final game of the weekend saw Saracens maintain their winning streak at Sale, but it took a fantastic offload by Will Skelton to put Owen Farrell in for the opening try.
Finally, Will pays tribute to legendary prop Martin Castrogiovanni, who has announced his retirement. The big man with the big beard will be always remembered for his big personality, and who can forget the time he was spotted partying with Zlatan Ibrahimovic in Las Vegas instead of playing an European semi-final!
