At the conclusion of a weekend of unexpected results that saw a feast of running rugby, three of the four Magners League Play-Off semi-finalists can be confirmed, but none has yet secured the vital home advantage.
Leinster, Ospreys and Glasgow Warriors are assured of a top four finish, whilst Munster, Cardiff Blues and Edinburgh must fight it out for the 4th and final Play-Off place next round.
Scarlets recorded their highest ever Magners League score with a 58-10 victory over Connacht, their 9 tries equalling their all time record.
Deiniol Jones arrival off the bench for Cardiff Blues set a new Magners League record with 118 appearances, whilst his team mate, Ben Blair, broke through 500 career points on Friday night.
