Leinster, who won both championships in 2017-18, has scored more points than any other team - 96 - so far and has won two out of three. Sean Cronin continues his hot scoring streak and combined with speedy Jordan Larmour, power-running James Ryan, and tireless tackler Dan Leavy to put Leinster among the top teams.

Ryan called Bath “ultra-physical” and said this weekend’s return match will be even harder.

And for Munster, JJ Hanrahan’s kicking has been excellent, and he logged 15 points in a win over Castres that also saw scrumhalf Conor Murray unleash some superb work.

Glasgow’s Adam Hastings kicked for 17 points as the Warriors beat Lyon to keep close to Saracens. Ulster beat Saracens in dramatic fashion to go 2-1.

All told, as many as 14 teams are still in with a strong chance of making the quarterfinals, and six of those are Guinness PRO14 teams and five from the French Top 14.
