It has been four weeks of European Cup rugby and getting better each week with the stronger teams starting to show teeth now.

Here is the weekend Wrap….

Racing 92 was just too good for Ospreys when they beat them 40-27 bagging a full house of points over the weekend.

Although Ospreys had a late rally, Racing always looked the better side and never looked like loosing their Pool 4 match. It was total domination the first 55 minutes as they led 40-5.

Ospreys showed a lot of spirit coming back with four tries in the last quarter but it was never going to be enough after being outplayed from the start of the match.

Ulster kept the number 1 spot on top of Pool 3 after beating Harlequins 34-10 on Friday night.

Cooney was the man of the moment scoring 19 points for his side.

The Irish side got off to a good start with the first points on the board but it took another 34 minutes for them to trouble the scoreboard again with the home side that level the scores.

It was then that Ulster grab the game and scored the first try which will see them pull away from the home side and dominate the rest of the match.

Benetton got their first win of the season when they beat Lyon 25-22 over the weekend.

It was a dramatic try by Lazzaroni at the end to give Benetton a thrilling win in Treviso.

Lyon were on the edge for their second win of the seaosn leading 22-18 before Lazzaroni broke their fans hearts.

The whole game was a see-saw battle and it was always going to take one magical moment to give one of these teams the win at the end.

It was another thriller when Connacht edge Gloucester in their match 27-24.

With the win Connacht kept their hopes alive in Pool 5 after a lat score by Robin Copeland.

It was a close game throughout with the win up for grabs for both sides. Gloucester would feel hard done by as they had the win in their hands just to be snatch away with the late try by Copeland.

It was another tight contest between these two sides but Saracens turned it around this weekend after losing against Munster the week before in Ireland.

With this win they also kept their hopes alive for a playoff spot.

It was tries by Mako Vanipola and Sean Maitland that made the difference in a game that showed again the strength in defence both sides have.

It was always going to be close but Saracens were just applying the pressure for longer periods of time to break down Munster defence at the end.
