Date published: October 17 2017

After game one of the Champions Cup, here are the top performers on the field, with Saracens wing Liam Williams topping two categories.

Williams features twice following his excellent showing for Saracens, who look every bit title challengers yet again after their win at Northampton.

Elsewhere, Nemani Nadolo was solid for Montpellier despite his side losing to Leinster and can hold his high for the damage he did on Saturday.
