No change to the conferences for 18/19.

Q: Will it be the same format as last season or will you re-jig the conferences?
A: It will be the same two conferences, with teams playing the other sides in their section home and away and then teams from the other conference either home or away.
The one change is we will reverse the cross-conference fixtures.

From interview with the Pro 14 boss man.

Interesting to note that the boss man suggests 16 is the number of teams which would work for the league best in terms of reducing the number of games played, especially during the AI/6N windows.

At a guess in a Pro 16: 4 sections of 4: Irish, Welsh, South African and Scottish/Italian. Play H&A v sides in your own section to keep derbies and play the other 12 sides split Home and Away - 18 game season. Playoffs could be winner of each section then next 4 best sides in terms of points. Euro spots could be the section winners + next best 3 sides in terms of points.

Wooo, trip to Burke & Hare in Edinburgh this season

Would love to do the SA double header. Must check when the fixtures are released if it's feasible or not. Some time around March would be perfect

For fans travelling to SA, the Nov/Dec slot is probably the best of them ...

There's a ferry from Cork to Santander and then from Algeciras to Tangiers. From there I assume it's straightforward enough ...
