It's the third last game of the Pro14 season! Connacht are still in the running for a playoff spot, but a lot still to play for as we get down to the end of season. 


Join the Clan in Murty Rabbitts for the match! All are welcome!!

You've got to think it's going to be a 100% first choice team heading over to this.

We've had some bad days over in Parma, but Zebre havn't won a Pro14 game since October, and only one home win at all this season. I'm not sure am I more or less reassured by that stat. I think we're seen as being a scalp for them to take, and take it they have.

it's a banana peel.

Aye a win basically locks up 2nd for them. Cardiff Blues have named a strong 23 also.

I wonder who would cover 10? (God forbid etc.)

Blade I'm assuming, he covered it when Godwin went off against Ospreys

Daly came on for Godwin vs. Ospreys and played 10. If Godwin had come off earlier it's possible Blade would have been an option with Healy going to 9, but Blade had already replaced Marmion and we'd made a change in the back three, so Daly it was. Thought he did quite well.

We're favoured by +8. FFS it's a tricky but we have to get the win!
I'm less optimistic for this away one than for Cardiff home, but roll on, it's now or never!!

Thank you Munster, the maths is getting easier now. We just need to win tomorrow and win next weekend. I don’t know though if we can beat that Cardiff team, they are so good. We can win tomorrow though, one step at a time.

Has leader ever played at 10? He's one of our best kickers, playing quite well recently.

If I remember correctly he did once. Could have been because we had no other fit 10.

Don't remember Leader ever stepping in there though I could be mistaken, he has covered centre before for sure.

Strangest 10 covers I can remember are Cooney, O'Halloran and Henshaw though I'm sure there have been others I can't remember off the top of my head.

So who's the cover 10

O'Halloran? Daly? Blade? or Leader?

Odds are even...

Just a warning in case anyone has been taken in by reports that this game is on TG4 (including in the Irish Times and on the Pro14's own website!). It's not. It's on Eir Sport 1 and FreeSports (which you can get for free if you have a satellite dish).
