1 minute, 19 seconds Read

It was all change yet again at the top of the RaboDirect PRO12 table following round 20 with Ulster retaking the top position, whilst Glasgow Warriors slipped to third. And with just two rounds left, and a maximum of ten points on offer, five teams are still vying for the four Play-Off places.

The game of this round must be fourth placed Ospreys visit to Scotstoun to play third in the table Glasgow Warriors on Friday night. Having lost to another Play-Off contender, Scarlets, last time out, Warriors have slipped to their lowest point in the table since Christmas, whilst if they have to have any hope of retaining their title, Ospreys must ensure they make the Play-Offs so both teams know every point counts.

Leaders Ulster are also in action on Friday night facing a trip to ninth placed Connacht and must be wary of the fact Connacht have not lost at the Sportsground in 2013 and won this equivalent fixture last season.

Fifth placed Scarlets will have a chance to catch up on the top four when they face Cardiff Blues on Saturday, knowing they have won their last 7 matches against the Blues in all tournaments.

The final match of the round sees second placed Leinster breaking new ground when they take on Zebre at Stadio Citta del Tricolore in Reggio Emilia, Italy. It is the first time a RaboDirect PRO12 game has been played there, the game has been moved to the larger venue to help raise funds for victims of the earthquake that hit the region last year.
