Leicester Tigers and Northampton Saints both made it two wins from two in Europe this season, while Bath and Exeter were also victorious on a dream Saturday for the Aviva Premiership.
English teams have lost just one game so far in the European Champions Cup, with Tigers and Saints both looking well-placed as they target a spot in the last eight.
While Leicester were always favourites to win in Treviso, the 36-3 final score was the sort of comprehensive success they were after, with Telusa Veainu’s double helping them to a bonus-point success.
Northampton’s trip to Pro12 champions Glasgow looked an altogether tougher proposition, but Saints appear to be finding some form and produced arguably the result of the day at Scotstoun.
A dominant performance from their pack allowed them to emerge 26-15 winners away at the Warriors, as Ahsee Tuala crossed twice after George Pisi’s opener to put them in great shape after the first two rounds of matches.
Earlier in the day Bath had got their European campaign underway with a hard-fought win over Leinster, with George Ford nudging them to a 19-16 success.
After last week’s clash with Toulon was postponed, Bath needed a strong start at the Rec, and they got it, handing the three times champions a second straight loss to start the tournament.
Elsewhere Exeter bounced back well from last week’s disappointing loss to the Ospreys as they picked up all five points in a 34-19 win over Bordeaux-Begles.
Olly Woodburn scored two tries on his debut for the club, with Moray Low and Ian Whitten also going over for Rob Baxter’s men.
It was more mixed news for English teams in the Challenge Cup, but Sale responded to last week’s loss to the Dragons with a 29-20 win over Pau.
Viliami Fihaki’s try three minutes from time finally put the result to bed, offering the Sharks a bonus point at the same time.
Elsewhere Worcester were well-beaten away at Zebre, 27-8, while London Irish conceded a last-minute converted try to go down 27-20 in Grenoble.
