World Rugby's Team of the Weekend: Billy Vunipola Soars in Saracens Triumph

Playoff mania continued to run rampant across Europe's top divisions this week as victories for Northampton Saints and Saracens set up what promises to be a spectacular Aviva Premiership finale.

In the Pro12, Glasgow Warriors and Leinster got the better of Munster and Ulster, respectively, to book their places in a Celtic climax of massive proportions, whereas Castres and Toulon will be the sides meeting in France's Top 14 equivalent.

In a bid to become the first team ever to enter the newly constructed European Rugby Champions Cup via the playoffs, London Wasps take a one-point aggregate lead into their second-leg duel against Stade Francais, too, following an entertaining 30-29 win at Adams Park.

Those semi-finals played this weekend account for the majority of our line-up this weekend, but a tremendously tough showing from the Sharks in Christchurch, as well as the Waratahs' routing of the Lions this weekend, ensures that there is some Super Rugby influence on world rugby's team of the week.
