In the first full round of the championship to take place in 2018, there were hair-rising displays from the Guinness PRO14’s stars, who lit up thrilling encounters in Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Italy.
As you aim to cultivate the perfect a winning team, we’ve taken a look at some of Round 13’s best performers.
Jordan Larmour and Fergus McFadden (Leinster Rugby)
Two Leinster players with contrasting levels of experience stole the spotlight as Leo Cullen’s side humbled Ulster 38-7.
Full-back Jordan Larmour racked up 22 Guinness PRO14 Fantasy Rugby points – more than any other player – by dotting down twice to headline an electrifying display at the RDS Arena.
Meanwhile, 31-year-old Fergus McFadden was also in fine scoring form, the winger also crossing the whitewash twice as part of a free-flowing Leinster showing.
Epalahame Faiva (Benetton Rugby)
Epalahame Faiva may have entered the fray as a replacement as Benetton Treviso recorded their third victory on the spin but the hooker played a key role in downing the Toyota Cheetahs.
The 23-year-old helped the hosts come from behind to run out 27-21 winners.
Faiva, who recorded 17 fantasy points, dwarfing the totals of other front-row forwards, by charging over the line for two tries in the space of nine second-half minutes.
George Horne (Glasgow Warriors)
Scrum-half George Horne was the heartbeat behind Glasgow Warriors’ bonus-point triumph at Zebre.
Six different players dotted down as the Conference A leaders ran out 40-20 winners, with Horne one of those try-scorers.
The influential Horne racked up 15 fantasy points and was named man of the match as he played a starring role in another superb Glasgow victory.
