Fiji Airways Flying Fijians star lock Leone Nakarawa and number eight Viliame Mata have been named in the Champions Cup team of the week.
Mata made an astonishing 114 metres, almost made double the amount of carries as any other player on the pitch and scored a try.
Nakarawa as usual led from the front in the forward battle covering 53 metres from a match high 18 runs with three clean breaks, as many defenders beaten and four offloads.
The two plays also played a vital role for the Flying Fijians in their historic win over France in the Europe tour test match last month.
