There is a new leader at the top of the RaboDirect PRO12 table for the first time since round 6, with Glasgow Warriors, following their record breaking bonus point 29-13 win over Cardiff Blues on Friday night, taking over the mantle from Ulster, who were held to a 29 all draw by Benetton Treviso.
The draw at Ravenhill was the first in this season’s competition, but it was quickly followed by a second the next day (the first time there has ever been two draws in a round of matches in the history of the competition) when the Munster v Ospreys game at Thomond Park ended level at 13 apiece. The two points from that game were not enough to keep Ospreys in the top four, and they, for the fourth round in succession, swapped places with Scarlets.
As the tournament is put on hold for the final Six Nations break, just two points separate the top three teams in the table, whilst it is even closer for the final Play Off spot, Scarlets occupying 4thplace by the narrowest of margins, one point ahead of Ospreys.
With just five rounds left all eyes will be on the final run-in to see which two teams will claim the coveted home Play-Off fixtures in May.
