With this season's Heineken Cup quarter-finals waiting just around the corner, Europe's giants took a final breath on the domestic stage before they resume their international endeavours.

Logovi'i Mulipola will be among those featuring in the last eight of the continent's heavy hitters, and for the second week in succession, he makes this week's shortlist after another rampaging run in Aviva Premiership participation.

And speaking of rampaging form, the Hurricanes' wing pairing of Alapati Leiua and Julian Savea were in fine individual form over the weekend, helping their side to a much-needed victory away to the Crusaders.

The speedsters showed that their array of talents span far wider than just pace alone, dishing out a few lumps on their way to a rousing win.

Frans Steyn also kept up Super Rugby's trend of crunching collisions so far this season, while London Irish's Tom Fowlie ensures that there's a European flag being flown at the end of this week's tunnel, thanks to his monstrous hit on Harlequins' Matt Hopper.
