After the fourth round of Heineken Cup matches at the weekend, we can now predict who can be expected to make the next round of the competition. With last years runners-up Northampton Saints and fellow English side Bath both already knocked out, it is up to Saracens, Leicester and Harlequins to carry the flag for England. All three sides managed wins at the weekend with Quins win away to Toulouse being the highlight game of the weekend.

Rugby boots spotted from the weekend were Roberto Quartaroli of Aironi in a pair of Puma V1.11s rugby boots and David Strettle in a pair of white/siren red/silver Nike Legend rugby boots. Also spotted were Cardiff Blues Leigh Halfpenny in a pair of Adidas Predator rugby boots and Ugo Monye in the new colour way of the Nike CTR360 boots.

Roberto Quartaroli

Wears: Puma v1.11 SG Boots Black, White & Blaze Yellow

Substitute Quartaroli grabbed a try off the bench at the weekend but could not prevent a lose of 46-20 to the Irish side. The Puma v1.11 rugby boots are becoming increasingly common amongst players with Shane Williams and James O’Connor being the most high-profile of wearers.

David Strettle

Plays for: Saracens and England

Wears: Nike Tiempo Legend IV Rugby Boots White, Siren Red & Silver

Ex-Harlequin Strettle will be hoping to force his way back in to the England squad after a strong start to the season. This weekend was the first time that the new Legend rugby boot colourway had been worn out on pitch.

Leigh Halfpenny

Plays for: Cardiff Blues and Wales

Wears: Adidas Predator RX SG Rugby Boots Black & High Energy Orange

The Welsh utility back continues to improve and is sure to be in the starting XV for his country come the 6 nations. Halfpenny has continued to stick to the Predator rugby boot even though many other players in his position have now moved over to the RS7 rugby boots.

Ugo Monye

Plays for: Harlequins and England

Wears: Nike CTR360 SG Rugby Boots Loyal Blue, Orange and White

Monye, along with the other 14 Quins on the pitch, defended incredibly in France and managed to come away with the victory. Like the Legend, this was the first weekend that the new CTR360 colourway was worn on pitch.

    Both the tiempo 4 versions look good but I think I will pay 150 USD and buy orange laces haha. Shame we couldn’t see the Elites on actual feet. Rodellega’s SPF II’s look better than the new ones hahaha. There are lots of good spottings here. Professional players are not required to wear guards. I don’t know why they don’t. It isn’t worth the risk. It’s like putting a seatbelt on when you are driving. Easy and life saving
