So a home QF v Connacht/Cardiff Blues/Ospreys on weekend of May 3-5

It will be Connacht if they beat Cardiff tomorrow, otherwise will be decided in R21.

In fantasy world for a second........ I'd rather an away SF in Thomond than Scotstoun, hopefully Leinster can beat Glasgow tomorrow.

Munster on 17/18th coming off the back of a bruising Euro SF vs Sorries the week before seems slightly more appealing. We provided we win our QF will of had a weeks rest.

Euro semi finals are next weekend. So Munster will have a month before league semi.

You mean if Munster are in the Euro final in Newcastle the week before?

I sacked off most of a free work weekend away in the hope of this.

Booked on an early flight to Bologna on the Sunday so a Friday night game would be perfect!

Should be ok unless Glasgow finish 2nd and want the Friday slot as well!

Bloody Weegies.

It’s tricky getting back to Blighty on a Saturday night!

If its the Saturday game is it likely to be an afternoon or evening kick off?
You've got to get your first tackle in early, even if it's late.

The honourable member is correct. 3:15pm and 6:35pm.

2045 flights booked for under 15 quid each.

That’d just about cover a 1730 kick off as the airport should be pretty quiet on a Saturday night.

Sat afternoon / evening will do best. A playoff game needs a full days preparation, ie several hours on the bar.
