The RUCK team have watched all four quarter-finals and have selected their three best and three worst performers from this weekend’s Champions Cup action.
Exeter Chiefs, Racing 92, Saracens and Toulouse went through with Northampton Saints, Clermont, Leinster and Ulster crashing out.
VIncent Koch (Saracens): The World Cup-winning prop made Cian Healy look like an amateur. Added to this, he made 18 tackles in a fantastic defensive effort.
Jacques Vermeulen (Exeter Chiefs): The South African flanker was monstrous as his side brushed Northampton Saints away. The rightful man of the match made 11 tackles, made 53 metres from his seven carries and topped off his performance with a try.
Cheslin Kolbe (Toulouse): The wing-wizard scored two great tries in Sunday’s quarter-final clash at Stade Ernest-Wallon. Kolbe showed his class at the beginning and end of the first half as he twice stepped inside Ireland wing Jacob Stockdale to round off sweeping moves.
