Fixtures For Opening Three Rounds Of PRO14 Have Been Revealed

We’re only four weeks away from the beginning of the new Guinness PRO14 season and it will certainly be interesting to see how the league unfolds with the new format established due to the inclusion of the Southern Kings and the Cheetahs. 

This week, we got an inkling into the opening round fixtures as Ulster Rugby announced they would be hosting the Cheetahs in Belfast for their first game of the season. Wales Online has now published what they believe to be the opening three rounds of fixtures for the re-jigged competition.

September 1-2

Cardiff Blues v Edinburgh

Connacht v Glasgow

Dragons v Leinster

Munster v Treviso

Ospreys v Zebre

Scarlets v Southern Kings

Ulster v Toyota Cheetahs

September 8-9

Connacht v Southern Kings

Edinburgh v Dragons

Glasgow v Ospreys

Leinster v Cardiff Blues

Munster v Toyota Cheetahs

Treviso v Ulster

Zebre v Scarlets

September 15-16

Cardiff Blues v Glasgow

Dragons v Connacht

Edinburgh v Treviso

Ospreys v Munster

Southern Kings v Leinster

Toyota Cheetahs v Zebre

Ulster v Scarlets

The Southern Kings will travel to Parc y Scarlets and the Sportground in Galway before returning to South Africa to host Leinster in Port Elizabeth. While the Cheetahs travel to Belfast before heading south to face off against Munster. The Bloemfontein outfit will then host Zebre in South Africa in the third round.

It will be interesting to see how the travel time between Europe and South Africa will affect the players but as already stated by PRO14 organisers, player welfare will be at the forefront, so no stone will be left unturned in ensuring the players can play at their peak.
