Not pointless at all. 5 for Leinster and Munster, 4 for Ulster and 1 fir Benetton.

Enjoyed that match in Galway. Interesting clash next week between Blues and Ospreys for a euro play-off spot.

So for 2019/20, one round to go:

Ireland 1 Leinster 75 Conf A
Ireland 2 Munster 73 Conf B
Ireland 3 Connacht 61 Conf B
Ireland 4 Ulster 59 Conf A

Points win prizes! So Ulster beat Leinster and Munster beat Connacht then it’s no change. B is easier than A from a rugby pov, but A has a locked in weekend in Parma!

Neill, can you provide evidence for saying this? I've looked at the Pro-14 website but I can't see anywhere it says league points trumps league position or vice versa.

The entire source for the new conference set up/rules is Wales Online press reports, so you can take from that you want! The Pro 14 aren’t big on explaining anything to the fans to be honest.

Indeed. He can’t win. If he helps Cardiff win, not a good start with the new fans etc
