Clean sweep for Leinster, Ulster, Munster and maybe Connacht coming up!

Friday in the Pro 12 has Connacht travelling to Edinburgh – their trickiest fixture for a while, as the Scots have a good team this year. This could easily be a banana skin for the men from the West.
Ulster meanwhile, should have 5 points in the bag as they take on Zebre, who are having a flat season, as usual.

Leinster have the biggest challenge, facing an Ospreys team who were pretty peed off by their loss in Galway last weekend. Both teams have been hit by the 6 Nations, but both have deep reserves. The Ospreys have one big card up their sleeve, and that’s fly half Sam Davies, who is going to be pressing for Wales in pretty short order. They probably also have the edge in physicality. But, at least we have home advantage! And a few players who really feel like they should be in the Ireland camp (like Jordi Murphy), plus we have a good chance of going top this weekend. So Leinster by a whisker

Finally, Munster really have to get 5 points out of the Dragons if they want to get a bit of momentum into their season, and I think they will!
