It's time for our weekly wrap up of who has their name in lights at the moment...and who is making headlines for the wrong reasons.
Blues: Took apart the Crusaders in a comprehensive 34-15 Super Rugby win. The Blues, who finished bottom of the New Zealand standings last year, outscored their illustrious New Zealand rivals by five tries to none. It was the Blues' second bonus-point win and firmly places Sir John Kirwan's side among the contenders for a title they have not won since 2003.
Glasgow: Hit top spot in the RaboDirect PRO12 after coming from behind to crush Cardiff Blues at Scotstoun. It was the in-form Warriors' seventh straight league win and fifth consecutive five-pointer that strengthens their bid for the semi-finals.
Exeter: Completed an Aviva Premiership double over Harlequins with a well-earned victory over the leaders at the Stoop. And there was even more reason to celebrate for Chiefs fans after Exeter's home ground, Sandy Park, was included on the long-list of stadiums under consideration to host 2015 Rugby World Cup fixtures.
Toulon: Beat defending champions Toulouse - a deserved win that puts them back on top of the Top 14 table after briefly falling to second spot.
Someone turn up the heater...!
Stormers: This time last year, the South African outfit were sitting pretty at the top of the standings. This season though, after away defeats to the Bulls and Sharks, the Stormers - winners of the South African conference for the past two seasons - have only one league point from a possible 10.
Steve Walsh: The New Zealand-born match official, now regarded as an Australian referee, copped plenty of flak from the Hurricanes camp following their defeat to the Reds in Brisbane. The visitors had opportunities to win the game at the death only to be denied by Walsh on several occasions, with SANZAR Referees boss Lyndon Bray conceding that Walsh - no stranger to controversy - got a couple of calls wrong in the final 20 minutes.
Ronan O'Gara: The 36-year-old has paid the price for his indifferent form of late. Ireland's most capped player (128 appearances) was omitted from Ireland's 32-man squad for this weekend's Six Nations clash with France. His latest outing in green (as a replacement against Scotland) appears to have been the final straw for coach Declan Kidney.
Edinburgh: Just when the struggling Scottish outfit thought it couldn't get any worse, it did. Last week's defeat to Scarlets in Llanelli was their 11th consecutive defeat in all competitions... ouch!
Stade Franšais: Lost for the first time at home this season (37-10 to Clermont), which puts their play-off hopes at risk. They'll have a chance of making amends against basement-dwellers Mont de Marsan on Saturday, but need other results go their way if Stade (10th) have any chance of making the top six.
