As mentioned above, Stockdale was one of two players who proved the difference in the Ulster-Wasps game, and the young Ulsterman earned the man-of-the-match award for his display. Instrumental in both tries, Stockdale finished magnificently for Ulster’s first and threw in a fabulous offload for Stuart McCloskey’s vital score.

His impressive leadership and that massive hit on definitely definetly contributed to Sir Clive Woodward calling for Farrell to be England captain this morning. His kicking both from the tee and hand was immaculate, while his control of the game was masterful. A genuine world-class player.
HM: Finn Russell (Glasgow Warriors), Gareth Steenson (Exeter Chiefs), Ryan Lamb (La Rochelle)
Scrum-half: Richard Wigglesworth (Saracens)
With a performance as unworldly as that, almost the whole Saracens squad could have been named in this team in truth, but we’ve plumped for Wigglesworth, who was classy in everything he did. His kicking game was utterly glorious, his pass crisp and his management of a stunning pack dazzling. What a team they are.
