It is time for our weekly wrap up of who has their name in lights at the moment...and who is making the headlines for the wrong reasons.
They're on fire!
Heineken Cup winners: To all the teams that picked up victories during Round Four, particularly Northampton, Clermont, the Ospreys, Saracens and Toulon. Saints bounced back from a tough night at Ravenhill with a bang while Clermont enhanced their title credentials before the Ospreys, Sarries and Toulon picked up wins over Toulouse, Munster and Sale respectively. It was once again a glowing endorsement of the back-to-back fixture format that adds extra spice to the fixtures.
Shane Monahan: Four tries for Gloucester against London Irish in the Amlin Challenge Cup, Monahan had one heck of a game on Saturday. That haul takes his tally this term to eleven after arriving from Rotherham. When at the lower league club he once revealed that his favourite film was Predator - he certainly showed those instincts over the weekend in what was his second four-try effort after achieving the same feat for the 'A' team against Worcester.
Montpellier: The Top 14 side gained an incredible 605 metres in their Heineken Cup win over Cardiff, of which 273metres were made after just 21 minutes! Leading the charge after 80 minutes were Timoci Nagusa and John Beattie who made 130 and 111 metres respectively during the match.
Morgan Parra: The Clermont scrum-half's contribution of 23 points in the win over Leinster has taken him to the top of the Heineken Cup points-scoring charts. Parra's haul of 64 points from four matches means that he averages 16 points per game.
Get these guys a cup of warm soup!
PA system at Saracens: Much to the annoyance of opposing and also many of their own supporters, the powers that be thought it was a good idea to play 'Stand up for the Saracens' at almost every occasion against Munster on Sunday. Needless to say it did not go down well with those at the ground - which led to one reader mailing us sighting the event - with many Sarries fans venting their disappointment on their official website, using words such as "embarrassing" and "cringe-worthy".
Injuries: There was a series of injuries surfacing from Round Four of the Heineken Cup as Tommy Bowe, Lee Byrne, Richardt Strauss, Dan Tuohy and Bakkies Botha found themselves on the treatment table. That quintet join a growing number of players on the sideline - we wish them all full recoveries over the festive period.
Sale: Just when it looked like they were about to turn the corner, after making Toulon work hard for a win two weeks ago, the Sharks were brought crashing down to earth with a 62-0 loss in the return match against Bernard Laporte's side. Sale boss John Mitchell hit the nail on the head when he said his side "got what it deserved".
Ibrahim Diarra: The Castres flanker received an eight-week ban for stamping on Glasgow Warriors prop Moray Low in their Heineken Cup tie.
