– Loosehead prop Brok Harris was in the starting lineup for the Dragons who suffered a blowout 56-17 defeat by the Bristol Bears at Ashton Gate Stadium. In his 60-minute shift, Harris made two carries and completed nine tackles.
– Bordeaux outlasted Edinburgh to claim a 23-14 victory to advance to the semi-finals. Forwards Jandre Marais and Joseph Dweba were on duty for the winning team. Marais made nine running metres over six carries, completed eight tackles, made three offloads and won two turnovers. Flyhalf Jaco van der Walt, prop Pierre Schoeman and hooker Michael Willemse turned out for Edinburgh, with Van der Walt accounting for six of the team’s points tally via two penalties.
*Quarter-final three between Toulon and Scarlets didn’t feature any South African players and quarter-final four between the Leicester Tigers and Castres was cancelled following confirmation by Castres that three members of their playing group, as well as one staff member, had tested positive for Covid-19 in advance of the club’s planned departure to England.
