Leinster have won their last fourteen games at home but will face a stiff challenge from a buoyant Ospreys, who won both their games over the holiday period and racked up fifty points in the victory over Llanelli Scarlets.
The round kicks off on Friday night with two games. Wins over Leinster and Connacht have propelled Munster up the league and they will travel to Newport Gwent Dragons having now leapfrogged their hosts in the table. Despite a recent Heineken Cup win in Cardiff over the Blues, Munster have lost on their last five league trips to the Principality and the Dragons will be looking for their sixth consecutive home win.
The Scarlets' title hopes were dealt a blow over the holiday period with back to back defeats and they will face Edinburgh at Murrayfield knowing they need to win if they are to stay in sight of the top of the table. However, they have lost their last three matches against Edinburgh and have never won on their three previous visits to Murrayfield.
The final game of the round pits Cardiff Blues against Border Reivers at the Arms Park where the Blues have a one hundred percent record in the league this season. The Reivers have also lost their last seven, although they came within a few minutes of winning in their last outing when a last gasp Warriors converted try robbed them of the points.
