Heineken Cup Team of the Weekend round two
A look at the players who impressed during the second round of European action
Monday 21 October 2013
There were big wins for Northampton Saints, Cardiff Blues and Toulouse in the second round of the Heineken Cup, while the Ospreys, Harlequins and Benetton Treviso saw their qualification hopes slip further away.
Elsewhere, Toulouse just sneaked a win at Wembley as Saracens suffered a serious dent in their hopes of progression, with the Barnet-based side now likely required to need a win when they travel to the south of France. Clermont Auvergne got back on tract after defeat to Racing Metro last week, with the Parisians playing out an entertaining 29-29 draw in Llanelli.
But who made this week's Team of the Weekend?
Two players manage to hold onto their place from last week, while there are 13 new faces who impressed enough to ensure their selection.
