It’s something of a relief to be returning our focus back to the domestic scene after all the excitement of the RBS Six Nations.
There are only a few weeks left until the Magners League will enter its first ever playoff phase, and as most sides welcome back their internationals, there’s a lot to play for.
I’m favouring home advantage in my predictions for this round, and I’m predicting wins for Munster and Leinster, even though they might have one eye on the Heineken Cup quarter-finals in a couple of weeks’ time.
The only Away side I’m predicting to win is the Ospreys, who have fly-half Dan Biggar back from injury, and should be too strong for a Dragons team that beat an under-strength Munster in the last round.
