As the Heineken Champions Cup reaches the crucial back-to-back matches over the next two weekends, we take a look at three players you must consider for your Heineken Champions Cup Fantasy XV. To create your Heineken Champions Cup Fantasy XV, in association with Superbru, click HERE.
Owen Farrell – Saracens
This surely has to be the week to pick the England and Saracens fly-half, who looks likely to make a belated Heineken Champions Cup seasonal debut against Munster Rugby in Limerick. Farrell, who returned to the Saracens fold last weekend and scored 20 points in their domestic win over Bath, kicked 22 points when Saracens met Munster in last season’s semi-final.
Domestic wins leave both sides top of their respective tables 👊
Who are you backing to emerge victorious when the two sides face off at Franklin’s Gardens in Round 3?? 👀https://t.co/eFGZgutjFo

Hame Faiva – Benetton Rugby
The 25-year-old hooker has already made a huge impression in this season’s Heineken Champions Cup, scoring a try against Leinster Rugby in Round 1, before backing that up with a brace against Northampton Saints. Benetton now face Lyon, who are yet to win in eight Heineken Champions Cup matches, so Faiva should have more opportunities to get on the board for fantasy owners.
Peceli Yato – ASM Clermont Auvergne
Arguably one of the most impressive players in the Heineken Champions Cup so far this season, the Clermont flanker notched a stunning 37 fantasy points against Harlequins in Round 1. He was halted to some extent in tricky conditions against Ulster, but still added 8.5 points to his tally and could break double figures when Clermont travel to Bath this weekend.
