Obviously plenty of people who know what they are doing rate Ratu Tagive, but I just can't see it.

Would far rather see them give the young boys a run if they don't trust Niko for a whole 80.

Amazing what a quick tap can do. Well done Price, the first real bit of ambition shown all game.

Is it not possible for Munster to catch Edinburgh if they pump Connacht and Edinburgh don't get a BP tonight?

No, Edinburgh have won 11 games, Munster 9.

There's an Edinburgh player doing the old Sean Fitzpatrick "getting back onside" by running through the 9-10 channel, but just like Fitzy, he somehow became invisible to the ref.

Thought Glasgow looked better this week, but it was against a much weakened Embra side. 

Wilson though has been going on for some time that the youngsters and fringe players are going to have a big part to play during the extended international window, I would have thought yesterday was the ideal time to give them a run out to get a bit of experience, last game of the season, nothing to play for, get 2 or 3 youngsters in with the old heads would have been ideal.

The 700 fans gives Edinburgh both the highest and the lowest (with fans) attendances in the Pro 14 this season both at home to Glasgow. It also must be the lowest attendance in Pro14/12/Celtic League history.  It is the 4th lowest behind Zebre v Newport Gwent Dragons (400) in 2013 Connacht v Caerphilly in 2001(455) and Connacht v Border Reivers (650) in 2005. Also Border Reivers lowest home attendance was 702 v  Connacht in 2006

Champions cup seedings announced and then fixed 

This article has been edited to reflect a clarification which now places Connacht as a Tier 3 qualifier and Glasgow Warriors as a Tier 4 qualifier

In light of the announcement by EPCR regarding qualifying places for European qualification for the 2020/21 tournaments, PRO14 Rugby can clarify how teams will be seeded.

The eight highest-ranked teams from the Conference tables from Round 13 will represent the Guinness PRO14 in the Heineken Champions Cup for the 2020/21 season.

Standings After Round 13

Conference A Leinster – 61 points Ulster – 43 points Glasgow – 34 points Dragons – 22 points

Conference B Edinburgh – 47 points Munster – 45 points Scarlets – 37 points Connacht – 35 points

These teams are:

  • Conference A: Leinster Rugby, Ulster Rugby, Glasgow Warriors & Dragons.
  • Conference B: Edinburgh Rugby, Munster Rugby, Scarlets, Connacht Rugby.

Please note: The Toyota Cheetahs are ineligible for EPCR competitions so Dragons take their place in the rankings.

The seedings for what tiers each team fits into the Champions Cup will be as follows.

  • Tier 1: Both Guinness PRO14 Finalists for the 2019/20 season.
  • Tier 2: Both losing semi-finalists from the 2019/20 season.
  • Tier 3: Scarlets (37 pts after R13), Connacht (35 pts after R13)
  • Tier 4: Glasgow Warriors (34 pts after R13), Dragons (22 pts after R13).

Points tallies for Tier 3 and Tier 4: Scarlets (37), Connacht (35), Glasgow Warriors (34), Dragons (22).

Please note: This article orginally indicated that Glasgow Warriors were a Tier 3 qualifer and Connacht were a Tier 4 qualifier. This was incorrect.
