Here’s how we think the RaboDirect will end up looking this season. As boring as it may be, we think the same two teams will finish top of the league (albeit in a different order) and progress to the final, likely with the same outcome.
Further down the table positions seven to ten look very interchangeable, while it is likely to be one from the Scarlets, Munster and the Ospreys for the final play-off spot. Zebre might finally get a win this season after some shrewd recruitment, but we still can’t see them getting off the foot of the table.
Do you agree? Who do you think will end up on top?
Leinster v Scarlets: Leinster to win
Ulster v Glasgow: Ulster to win
