Will Greenwood's Favourite 5: Jamie Heaslip keeps cool for red-hot Leinster
Last Updated: 18/01/17 11:27am
Jamie Heaslip keeping cool for Leinster, twinkle toes from Jack Nowell and Saracens feature in this week's favourite 5.
Leinster were red-hot on Friday night as they demolished Montpellier 57-3 and became the first side to book their place in the knock-out stages of the Champions Cup.
As usual, Jamie Heaslip was everywhere on the pitch and making plenty of tackles so was it any wonder he needed to cool down at half-time?
Not to be outdone, Munster were also in good form in the changing room after they booked their place in the quarter-finals with a hard-fought 14-12 win over Glasgow.
Team of the week
Twelve teams represented following a gripping penultimate round of Champions Cup action
Defending champions Saracens are also into the last eight - although they certainly left it late as Chris Ashton scored with time up on the clock to force a 22-22 draw with Scarlets.
There was plenty to talk about in this game including Will Skelton's yellow card for THAT slap on James Davies.
Exeter's chances of making the knockout stages are slim as they need maximum points away to Clermont and for other results to go their way. The good news for Chiefs and England fans is that Jack Nowell is back to his attacking best as his running lines helped them to a 31-19 win against Ulster.
