From Paris to Belfast, there were remarkable results across Europe as The British & Irish Lions 2017 Tour selection battle turned up a notch during this weekend’s European Rugby Champions Cup and Challenge Cup action.

Munster’s 38-0 victory over Leicester Tigers saw Conor Murray steal a march on Ben Youngs as Rassie Erasmus’s side became the first in 13 years to nil Leicester in Europe, condemning them to their heaviest ever European defeat in the process.

Glasgow Warriors boosted their Champions Cup qualification hopes with a thunderous 23-14 win over Top 14 champions and last year’s finalists Racing 92 in Paris as Jonny Gray made 19 tackles without missing any and Finn Russell was man of the match against All Black legend Dan Carter.

Paddy Jackson and Iain Henderson were inspirational for Ulster as they emerged victorious 39-32 in a nine-try thriller with Clermont Auvergne.

Reigning champions Saracens gave a huge show of strength in comprehensively outplaying Sale Sharks 50-3 where Maro Itoje was man of the match and Sean Maitland scored two tries.

Leinster too marked their return to form in the Champions Cup by dominating Northampton Saints on Friday night, Wasps grabbed a bonus point against Guinness PRO12 champions Connacht and Alun Wyn Jones reached a landmark against Grenoble.

Brian O’Driscoll can hardly believe his eyes after Munster's big win:

38-ZERO. Wow
