On Saturday the leaders, the Neath Swansea Ospreys, will face The Borders at The Gnoll. Although The Borders have become more successful on home soil recently they still have to gain that elusive first away victory - and may struggle to break that particular duck this weekend. The Ospreys are currently seven points clear of Munster, and should remain comfortably clear after Saturday evening's game. Also on Saturday Leinster travel to Edinburgh Rugby, where the game will be controlled by Wallaby test referee Stuart Dickinson. The Irish will be buoyed by their big win over the Dragons last time out and victory at Murrayfield could see them up to second place if Munster lose out on Sunday.
That Sunday game, against Glasgow Rugby at Limerick, also has an International flavour with Jonathan Kaplan of South Africa refereeing. Glasgow will be looking to end a five match losing run - but Thomond Park may not be the place to do it - Munster have not lost there for nearly a year.
