With only one regular game left in the Guinness PRO14 before the Final Series, this will be the last chance to gain points before the rules change and transfers are made.

After the penultimate round of action, these are the players to look out for ahead of this massive weekend of clashes.

Zebre managed an impressive 37-14 victory over Ospreys and the stand-out performer was Guilio Bisegni, who crossed three times for the Italians.

The winger earned himself 21 fantasy points with his hat-trick of tries as Zebre secured their best ever points tally for a season with a game still to go against the countrymen Benetton on Saturday.

Zebre face Benetton in the all-Italian clash this weekend.

Another player who caught the eye last weekend was Nick Timoney, who got a double against Glasgow Warriors in a 36-15 win that gave him 14 fantasy points.

The flanker went over for his first after 54 minutes with a powerful lunge at the line, then followed it up with a try in similar fashion in overtime to secure Ulster a bonus-point victory that guaranteed them a Champions Cup play-off spot.

Ulster will be looking to continue their momentum when they face Munster in Round 21.

In the final 1872 Cup clash of the season, Edinburgh’s Duhan van der Merwe will be looking to make a big impact after scoring 14 fantasy points as the Scots beat Scarlets 52-14 at BT Murrayfield in their last outing.

The winger has been named in Richard Cockerill’s starting XV in the Scottish showdown against Warriors on Saturday and Van der Merwe will be raring to go after demonstrating his electric pace against former champions Scarlets.
