RUCK’s Team of the Weekend: The best from Round Two of the Champions Cup and Challenge Cup

Wing: Christian Wade (Wasps)


The Wasps speedster played an influential role in his side getting back to winning ways against Harlequins with two tries. The pace he displayed for the first try was just phenomenal. Surely has to be on Eddie Jones radar.

HM: Chris Wyles (Saracens), Topsy Ojo (London Irish), Jonny May (Leicester Tigers), Nemani Nadolo Montpellier)

Fly-half: Johnny Sexton (Leinster)


Johnny Sexton, back in the Leinster starting fifteen having recovered from injury, put in a world-class display ad they overcame Glasgow. The Ireland outhalf was heavily involved in play throughout, kicking two penalties and two conversions, as well as getting in on the tries himself early in the second half.  Also backed his forwards with some right decisions to turn down a kick at posts in favour for the corner which paid off.

HM: Charlie Cassang (Clermont), Dan Biggar (Ospreys), Finn Russell (Glasgow Warriors), Ian McKinley (Treviso), Rhys Priestland (Bath), Toby Flood (Newcastle Falcons)

Scrum-half: Conor Murray (Munster)


A gripping battle with Racing was swung in Munster’s favour when Conor Murray blocked a kick on halfway before collecting the bobbling ball to run in a superb try. The try changed the momentum of the game, which finished 14-7 to the Irish province. He has to be one of the best No.9’s in the world.

HM: Ben Youngs (Leicester Tigers), Kahn Fotuali’I (Bath)
