This weekend - the Pro12 in full effect!

 Noel Reid

With the 6N taking a break this weekend, there's plenty of Pro12 action to take it's place.

Leinster welcome Edinburgh to the RDS, and have named a decent looking team. It's fantastic to see Carberry starting again, and he partners with Luke McGrath, Rory O'Louglin and Noel Reid. As they say in the States, we're blessed1 Noel Reid is an underrated nugget that only gets let out when Ireland are playing , it's a fiercly compeitive midfield. We also get Mike Ross back, and Dan Leavy  gets to make just the bench! Edinburgh looked pretty decent last weekend against Ulster, so we need a good performance, but we'll get one!

That's on Friday, but great matches on Saturday too, with Ulster hoping to put a wobbly win last weekend behind them and claim Glasgow's scalp. After that, Munster will probably face a stern test away to the Ospreys.

Finally, Connacht should make up more ground on sixth place with a home draw against the Dragons.

Leinster 19:35 Edinburgh2
Scarlets 19:35 Zebre
Saturday 18th February
Cardiff Blues 14:30 Treviso
Ulster 15:00 Glasgow Warriors
