The Ospreys will host the Scarlets in an Easter Bank Holiday weekend battle at the Liberty Stadium, the Guinness PRO12 today confirming the game for 3.00pm on Saturday 26th March.
The big derby match will be the first game post-Six Nations and will provide supporters with the perfect chance to welcome home the Ospreys’ Wales contingent just a week after the final round of international fixtures.
With the Scarlets currently sitting second in the PRO12 with the Ospreys 10 points behind, it promises to be a massive game, possibly the biggest ever between the two regions, as we look to climb the table between now and the end of the campaign.
In addition to the big Round 18 fixture, PRO12 organisers have also confirmed the schedule for the remainder of the season, which sees the Ospreys also face Welsh derbies on the road against the Blues and the Dragons, as well as welcoming Benetton Treviso and Ulster to the Liberty.
The week after the Scarlets clash, Round 19 sees the Ospreys make the trip to Rodney Parade on Friday 1st April for a 7.05pm KO against the Dragons.
Two weeks later, Treviso visit the Liberty on Friday 15th April (7.35pm KO) in Round 20, while Round 21 is Judgement Day, the Ospreys facing the Blues at the Principality Stadium at 2.30pm on Saturday 30th April.
All six games on the final weekend of the PRO12 will then kick-off simultaneously at 3pm on Saturday 7th May with the Ospreys home to Ulster.
The PRO12 semi-finals will be played on Friday 20th May (7.45pm KO) and Saturday 21st May (6.30pm KO), with the PRO12 Final a week later at BT Murrayfield (Saturday 28th May, 5.30pm KO).
