Pro 14 Round 5 Preview

Pro 14 Round 5 Preview

It has been a great start to this year’s Pro 14 and while it has been slightly hindered by the Rugby World Cup happening in Japan, many of the big sides have now welcomed back their star players.

 


 

Round 5 is expected to be an absolute cracker this weekend and it kicks off with three games on Friday. Leinster, who are unbeaten and current reigning champions, take on Dragons, the same time the Warriors, who are looking for the second win of their season, host the Isuzu Southern Kings and Zebre travel to Ulster. 

 


 

On Saturday, Scarlets host the Cheetahs, Ospreys host a much improved Connacht, Edinburgh travel to Benetton and the Cardiff Blues welcome Munster.
