With all six Pro12 games kicking off at the same time on Saturday (3pm), the league will be covered by each of its TV partners simultaneously with only one fixture not featured live on TV.

Irish rugby fans from Ulster, Munster and Connacht hoping to see how their team fares in the climactic final day will be able to view games on their Skybox without the use of a red button. And the southern province’s home clash with the Dragons will be free to air on TG4.
