SATURDAY 27 APRIL

Ulster v Leinster, Kingspan Stadium, 5:15pm

There is nothing riding on Ulster v Leinster really. Leinster, as we know, have qualified for the semi-finals for a number of weeks. They ran away with Conference B. Ulster will be playing Connacht in the semi-final play-off next weekend. There is not a huge amount to play for.

It's an important game for Ulster as they are hosting Connacht the following week and when they look back at their Champions Cup quarter-final with Leinster, it was probably their best performance of the year. They will feel on another day they could have caught Leinster.

It has been a good season for Ulster to date and they will feel they have the capacity to beat Connacht in a play-off, especially at home, and make it a Pro14 semi-final.

Leinster have a massive target on their back; everyone wants to beat them. But it's a different approach for Leinster now. I don't think Leo Cullen will play any of his frontline players.

The only dilemma for him is the likes of Johnny Sexton, Robbie Henshaw and Devin Toner, who have played little or no rugby in recent times, that is if they don't play this weekend it will be another three weeks between their European semi-final and final.

At the same time, will Leo Cullen gamble will them picking up another injury? It'll be interesting to see how they approach it.

Munster v Connacht, Thomand Park, 7:35pm

Munster v Connacht does have significance for Munster. They need to win and hope Edinburgh do them a favour by beating Glasgow so they can have a home quarter-final. There is a lot hanging on that game.

The big game for Connacht was their last outing against Cardiff in Connacht. By winning that game it meant they were absolutely guaranteed a place in the Champions Cup next year and guaranteed that semi-final play-off with Ulster. Their job is done really. They will rest some key players.

I think Munster will want to finish the season well and go out and win the Pro14.

I got the sense at a Munster awards night that there was an acceptance they were beaten by the better team against Saracens and as such the European hangover may not be as bad.

That will be made a lot easier if they can host a home semi-final rather than be in that play-off. It will also give them a weekend off.
