For the second weekend in a row, Europe's elite took to the spotlight as the Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup once again threw the continent's big guns against one another.

Predictably, it was the former competition and Europe's greatest honour that takes precedence in this week's edition of the biggest hits, with the Southern Hemisphere not far away from starting their calendar afresh.

After suffering a shock defeat to the Irish province last week, Toulouse were evidently out for redemption at the Sportsground during the return fixture and dealt out their frustrations against Connacht.

However, the real highlight of this week's selection goes to former France great Sebastien Chabal, now of Lyon, who receives no more than a yellow card, despite knocking an Agen player out with a firm right hook.

Of course, it has to be seen to be believed, so get comfortable and more importantly try and stay that way as you take in the biggest hits in world rugby this week.
