Glasgow Warriors 42-13 Leicester Tigers

Glasgow Warriors Head Coach Gregor Townsend: "Parts of the performance were outstanding, the forward pack in particular: the way they scrummed, the way they carried the ball, the way they defended the lineout drive. We drove well ourselves, we got penalties and our scrummage up against a very big pack was outstanding.

"The occasion was brilliant, the supporters were great. It was a brilliant night for our wingers and for Zander (Fagerson) to go up against two very good loosehead props, he was really controlled and strong. "It was great to see the players play well but there's a bit of work to do and it's mainly my coaching because there were a few attack plays that didn't work well."

Leicester director of rugby Richard Cockerill: "The first 15 minutes were all right and then we went downhill rapidly. We started well against a stiff breeze, controlled the game well, our tactics were good, even with Matt Toomua in the bin. Then we made silly errors and invited Glasgow into the game, they are very good on the front foot and they played very well and they punished us.

"We couldn't cope when they had quick ball and quick recycle. I don't like artificial pitches, that's my personal view. That's got nothing to do with what happened tonight. Purely to do with us."

Wasps 82-14 Zebre

Wasps director of rugby Dai Young: "We knew we had to get five points and that was the big target to secure those points and have no injuries. There are a lot of smiles on people's faces as there were some great inter-play between backs and forwards as we always want to play with tempo. We were disappointed to give away two tries and we had a rallying cry at half-time and it paid dividends.

"I don't agree with Danny (Cipriani) getting man of the match as it should have been Joe (Launchbury). He was impressive in the first 25 minutes when the game was in the balance as he secured big turnovers and made big tackles. He looks a world-class second row and we are really pleased to have him back and the big challenge for him is to remain fit. Cipriani did everything that was asked of him today as he kept it simple and direct and got the ball into space very well. He pulled the strings for us, did a great job in steering the ship and couldn't have done anymore. He's getting used to not being picked but every press conference seems to be about Danny (Cipriani) and I feel this is doing him no favours."

RC Toulon 23-31 Saracens

Toulon Backs coach Mike Ford: "Our defence was poor, the three tries were down to individual errors and not staying together, they did well to exploit it but there were some schoolboy errors there. We left ourselves with a mountain to climb. I am delighted by the attitude the guys showed after the break and we were back within a score, but just a couple of key moments, a couple of key line-outs went astray when we did not execute well.

"They also took a bonus point off us. At half time we would have bitten your hand off if you had said we could get one, but with the way things turned out we are very disappointed. All we can do now is get back down to work, we have Sale next week which will be tough and they will be licking their lips, but we have superb players and they will respond."

Saracens out-half Owen Farrell: "It was a great effort from the group, to come to a place like this and get a result is a massive scalp. But there are still things to work on, our discipline was not great in the second half and I am sure we will look at that.

"Having said that, beating a terrific team like Toulon is a great start. We forced them to make individual errors, we wanted to make sure we were in the game and pushing the same way and we did that really well and hit them well around the ruck area. It is a great start, but that is all it is, we have got the Scarlets next week and we need to back up this result."

Leinster 33-15 Castres

Leinster Head Coach Leo Cullen: "(Scrum coach) John (Fogarty) does a huge amount of work with those guys (try scorers) Sean Cronin and Jack McGrath). A real strong culture there for the front rowers. They give really good hit-outs every week at training, some real good ding-dong battles there during the week at training. It's sometimes that second team pack really puts the squeeze on the starters, so it's a good competitive environment. I think it's adding to the levels of the performance."

"I thought Joey (Carbery, in for the injured Jonathan Sexton) acquitted himself well. He's come into the team this year. He obviously made his debut last season, but he's come in in pre-season, and he's had a really good run of games, early season in the PRO12. He's getting better all the time, he works incredibly hard. He's a pleasure to coach, because you can see the energy that he brings. He's a brave player as well. I thought he went well again. Similar to what he's done so far this season. It wasn't a great surprise. We were just delighted that it was another positive experience for him, because he works hard and wants to get better."

Castres scrum-half Rory Kockott: "I think it's more of a technical problem, we have in the contact. Leinster have really brushed up, and are really shining in that area. With regards to how they face the contact now, they face the contact part of rugby, which is almost every point of it. I think in that point, we can take a little lesson home tonight and learn from it. They certainly had the upper hand, Leinster, in the first half. We didn't. We found ourselves behind a great driving maul."

Northampton Saints 16-14 Montpellier

Northampton Saints Director of Rugby Jim Mallinder: "Pro Sport is very fine margins. (We)Kept our nerve which is very important because in European rugby in this format of competition, you must win your first home game, you must win it.

Commenting on the size of the Montpellier team: "I think they're the biggest side I have come across in terms the size of the team. The front five, the back row, you're looking at some of those players who were probably bigger than some of our second rows. It was an enormous pack, but I think our lads did well"

Connacht 23-21 Stade Toulouse

Connacht head coach Pat Lam: "It shows how far we have come as a team since the last time we played them three years ago, and we expect to win as a team based on the work we do. We are a representation of the west of Ireland, and people deal with adversity all of the time. We are all about inspiring our community, that is the purpose of Connacht Rugby and there was more great inspiration tonight.

"The biggest thing is the character of these guys. We went down 9-0 on the basis of making errors and giving away (scrum) penalties, and then a soft try before half-time. But what sums us up the most is the last two minutes of the game. To stand up after all that physical work against guys who were massive, to close them out, knowing that if they gave away a penalty, they win, but they had the faith to go through it and nail their jobs - that probably sums up this team."

Toulouse replacement Toby Flood: "It is almost like it hasn't dawned on the supporters how good Connacht are, what a force they are. They have won the PRO12. They are no longer that team I last played here nine or 10 years ago with the Newcastle Falcons when we were expected to come and win. It has completely changed. It certainly wasn't the result we wanted, but we were under no illusions coming here how difficult it would be.

"Tiredness to a point because the PRO12 and Premiership is very different to the Top 14. It's more a slug-fest there, and the ball is in play a lot longer here, so teams will ask more questions. Connacht ask lots of questions in attack and they do it well, and that, with fatigue, slowly bears down on you. They are a team that will always squeeze you."

Bordeaux 28-13 Ulster

Ulster performance director Bryn Cunningham: "I'm stunned," talking to BBC Northern Ireland. "I thought at half-time we looked to be in the driving seat. The opening 10 minutes we weathered the storm pretty well and started taking control of the game. We played a lot of territory, went through the phases and we were good for our half-time lead. We should have been more out of sight but didn't take some chances, but at least we were looking positive and had stamped our authority on the game.

"The second half was nothing short of atrocious. I am absolutely gobsmacked at how we played - our defence on our own line was outstanding at times, and we showed a lot of heart there, but we stayed camped there.

"We only spent a minute in the opposition half in the second half - it was incredibly disappointing. And then to throw away the chance of a losing bonus point in the end when we fumbled the ball and they ran the length of the pitch, just rubbed a bit of salt in the wounds.

"All in all it was massively disappointing. We knew we needed to get something out of this game given the tight nature of the pool."

Exeter Chiefs 8-35 Clermont Auvergne

Exeter head coach Rob Baxter: "Today feels a bit of a low to me, really, because I don't think that was a level of performance that is anything like we can achieve or have achieved in the past. I am not saying the boys are not working hard, but there were a lot of errors in there, and our Achilles' heel this season of conceding some soft points out of very innocuous situations reared its head again tonight."

"I've said to the lads that the response I am expecting is a little bit of anger. We've lost plenty of games - and against far worse teams than Clermont - in the time I've been coaching the club, but I am expecting us to be a bit angry with some of the things that went out there tonight. If that's our response, I will be pleased. What I don't want our response to be is the guys just come into training and get on with things and sooner or later our season will ignite. When you wait for something to happen, it never happens."
