Final PRO12 fixtures confirmed

The dates and kick-off times for the last three rounds of the RaboDirect PRO12 can now be confirmed following a meeting with the Tournament's Broadcasters.

With six teams still fighting for a possible top four finish and a place in the Play-Offs, interest in the final few rounds is intense.

The Ospreys, who currently sit just outside of the Play-Off spots in fifth place, welcome Italians Benetton Treviso to the Liberty Stadium on Saturday 13th April (KO 6.30pm) for the final home fixture of the regular season, and then the following weekend travel north to face current PRO12 leaders Glasgow at Scotstoun Stadium on Friday 19th April (KO 7.35pm).

The final round of games will all kick-off simultaneously, at 7.45pm UK time (8.45 in Italy) on Friday 3rd May, with the Ospreys traveling to Dublin to take on Leinster at the RDS Showground.

The dates for the Play-Offs and the RaboDirect PRO12 final can now also be confirmed, although the order of the Play-Off games on the weekend of 10/11th May cannot be determined until the venues are known.

The teams that finish first and second placed in the RaboDirect PRO12 table will host the fourth and third placed teams respectively, one Play-Off game will be take place on Friday night, kicking off at 7.45pm and one game Saturday at 7.35pm (both UK & Ireland timings).

The RaboDirect PRO12 Final will take place on Saturday 25th May 2013, with a kick-off time of 4.45pm (UK & Ireland time, 5.45pm Italy).

Whilst the RaboDirect PRO12 determines the venue for the Final the team that finished highest in the regular season can propose a venue within its own Union’s jurisdiction (provided that it meets certain criteria).

Venues and ticketing arrangements for the knockout stages will be confirmed at a later date.
