The final is on Saturday June 19th between either the top 2 in the NH competition / top sides in each of the NH and SH competitions. If latter, Italy being suggested as a venue. The format is flexible!

So, the way it used to be before the Nigels took over and "improved" the tournament?? :wink:
I suspect we will see a similar format to this year with the 2 groups x 12 and Round of 16 etc.

Re: Pro 14 - General Thread

So Scarlets join Leinster, Ulster, Munster, Connacht and Ospreys in Heineken Cup for season 21/22. Cardiff Blues and Glasgow/Dragons could also qualify, once they confirm whether it is 6, 7 or 8 sides who qualify.

Mad that there's a league game on the day after the final of the same league.
Just shows the times we live in!
Dragons v Edinburgh - Could be a key game for last Heineken spot (if 8 teams qualify). Glasgow and Dragons separated by points difference.

Re: is the Rainbow Cup still going ahead?

No fixtures yet. 2 x conferences of 8 teams. 2 x Irish, 2 x Welsh, 2 x South African, 1 x Scottish and 1 x Italian team/teams in each conference. No details of the conferences yet. 7 games for each side with a weekend of derbies on week 1 so Leinster v Ulster/Munster/Connacht.
