MUNSTER AND LEINSTER will square off in the Pro14 semi-finals provided the southern province can see off the challenge of Edinburgh in their quarter-final at Thomond Park next Saturday.

Edinburgh secured the passage into the play-offs without having kicked a ball versus Glasgow on derby weekend: Ulster’s failure to beat Munster with a four-try bonus point this afternoon ensured the Scottish capital club would visit Thomond in their stead next weekend, with Ulster now facing an altogether more perilous play-off prospect – that for Champions Cup qualification.

Leinster, having topped their conference, guaranteed themselves an Aviva Stadium semi-final: Leo Cullen’s men await the winner of Munster versus Edinburgh, with kick-off at Thomond set for 3:15pm next Saturday.

On the other side of the tree, the Scarlets and the Cheetahs will battle it out on the Welsh west coast for a semi-final wherein Glasgow lie in wait.

Here’s the full Pro14 play-off draw:
