The quarter finals threw up some massive results, with the two behemoths of world rugby, Australia and New Zealand, unexpectedly sent packing by England and France respectively. At the top of the table Tom Weir has now stretched his lead and has a stunning 544 points - can anyone stop him?

Manager of the ROUND

The Round 5 winner is Paul

Stephens, from Bargain Box in Cheshire, whose team have won this round of games at a canter. This was based on his Tri Nations players from NZ, Australia and South Africa, but with only one of those nations left in the tournament, Paul may have to readjust his pack and bring in some try-scoring back division to get himself up the overall leader board. Paul has wisely installed Janie Du Preez and Bryan Habana as part of his SA contingent and will look to bring in some France and England players for the final round of games.

The team:

1 J Smith SA, 2 J Bonnaire FRA,

3 A Hogg SCO, 4 T Dusautoir FRA, 5 M Durand ARG, 6 S Taylor SCO, 7 JM Fernandez Lobbe ARG, 8 G Smith AUS, 9 F du Preez SA,

10 J Wilkinson ENG, 11 Y Jauzion FRA,

12 L Tuqiri AUS, 13 J Rokocoko NZ,

14 B Habana SA, 15 D Howlett NZ
