Here's The42's Champions Cup team of the tournament

No surprise that Toulon and Clermont are well represented.

TOULON WON THEIR third straight European Cup at Twickenham last Saturday but there were plenty of other players who excelled over the course of the inaugural Champions Cup.

There were loads of tough omissions but these 15 players all made big contributions at key times for their teams.
