Champions Cup team of the weekend

It was a busy few days of European rugby, but which 15 players make our team of the weekend?

Fullback: Gareth Anscombe (Cardiff Blues) 

He was calmness personified and brought a sharp dimension to their attacking game as they overcame Lyon 30-21 on their travels.  The 27-year-old scored a wonderful solo try and was also confident off the tee.


Winger: Maxime Medard (Toulouse)

He scored a great try before saving his side from certain defeat…


Centre: Will Addison (Ulster) 

The former England U20 and Ireland hopeful really looked the business. Likely to be part of Joe Schmidt’s plans this Autumn.


Centre: Robbie Henshaw (Leinster )

Seems to have bulked up over the summer. Showed good gas in the 36th minute but he couldn’t quite get past the wily Willie Le Roux, who guided him to the outside. Try in the 74th minute, doing brilliantly to slide in the corner.


Winger: James Lowe (Leinster)

The speedster backed up his huge game against Munster with another voracious, two-try, 80-minute effort which did earn the official man-of-the-match award in Friday’s dissection of Wasps.
