Flying Fijians and Edinburgh flanker Viliame Mata has been named in the Champions Cup Round 5 Team of the Week following a magical offload he created when they defeated Toulon 28-17 over the weekend.

Mata leads the tournament in overall carries, making 15 of those in their win over the three times champions.

He has gained a total of 72 metres with ball in hand, made a clean break, beat four defenders and won a turnover.

The powerful back row also produced one of the best offloads seen in recent times to send Johnstone away for the game winning score.
