    The Guinness Pro12 14-15 Fixtures

    Thought we could pool all the information on next seasons league, including the sky sports coverage and the mysterious new title sponsor in the one place.


    Hope to see Munster improve on their positioning and playoff standing next season, also think the recruiting that Dragons and the Blues have undertaken may make the welsh contingent far more competitive. Especially with merit based qualification for Europe.


    Any news on the title sponsor?

    Would like to know when a fixture list is going to appear. Can't remember when it has normally happened (early August?) but I know I'm a bit previous at this stage.
    Tis but a scratch.

        I'm guessing the title sponsor will be up in the air until we find out what teams are playing in it. Maybe we'll go down the Super Duper route and have an array of secondary sponsors.

              It will be called the Pro 12, no matter what, so change the title of thread?

                They could call it the Turkish Delight 12 for all I care.

                  But it is in fact called the Pro12 and has been since the Italian teams joined. So there is no need to change the name of the thread no matter who if anyone, sponsors it.

                  I've always hated "deRabo" as a title as it always seemed to me that it chimed well with those who talked down the league as a lesser competition than the domestic league of England or France.

                  IMHO I think taking the league seriously means using it's proper name, at the very least. We all know from bitter experience that many of the palyers, past and present, as well as managers and fans have not seen it as a front rank competition.

                  Well it's time to wake up. If you want Munster to have a realistic shot at a European championship now, it starts with winning the Pro12.

                    I can't find a reputable source for this, but apparently:

                    Sky have come forward already with their kick-off times. They will be Saturday afternoons. They are covering 30 games, 22 of them will be about 3pm on a Saturday and 8 will be at 5pm or 5.15pm on a Saturday.
                    The other three will be the play-offs, presumably, bringing them to their quota of 33.

                        That will only be three or so Munster games those times apply to though and they won't all be at home. Are RTE, Tg4, and the regional BBC companies still covering games does anyone know?

                          He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

                              Was Heineken also mooted as a possible New Sponsor for the Pro 12 ?
