Pro 12 – The Final Four


Another season comes to a close and once again the top 4 can be hardly debated. Ospreys, Munster, Ulster and Glasgow now all stand in contention for the Pro 12 title, something which has eluded them all bar Ospreys in 2010. It’s never been more competitive up here.

Pro 12 – Knock Out Battle To Come


On Saturday at 3pm a new era in the Pro 12 will be born.

As Leinster and Connacht take on the Italian underlings, north and south will be clashing to make one last push on who finishes with that all important home semi-final.
