Eyes will soon turn back to Europe but there is still time to reflect on another epic weekend of action in the Guinness PRO14.

The stand-out was probably Zebre’s epic away victory at the Dragons, which ended a wait of over a year for a league victory.

It was a bitter pill for the Dragons to swallow however, and Dean Ryan is not going to let the rot set in. The big dogs are coming back, and soon.

It was better news for the Cardiff Blues against Italian opposition, a last-gasp win over Benetton kickstarting their season – according to Lloyd Williams.


Glasgow Warriors’ slow start to the campaign continued, beaten comfortably at home by a second-string Leinster side.

But Ruaridh Jackson – who is rocking a ridiculous mullet and pink moustache combo for Movember – has called for calm.

Meanwhile Ulster march on, and Robert Baloucoune is hoping he has given Dan McFarland a selection headache out wide.

While the Belfast Newsletter are speculating that the Rory Best retirement tour might not be over just yet!


Cardiff City Stadium will play host to the 2020 Guinness PRO14 Final on June 20 as one of the most exciting days in the club rugby calendar comes to Wales!
