        Yeah. Has been reported in places quite a bit already.
        Based on their union ranking from the season before

            Premiership fixtures out on Friday. Should be mid July for the Pro 14.

            As Munster did the SA double game in 17/18, will have 11 home games and 10 away games. If indeed it is Conference B this year - then fixtures would be:

            H&A - Ulster, Leinster, Connacht, Scarlets, Edinburgh, Dragons, Treviso and Southern Kings.
            Home only - Cheetahs, 2 of (Glasgow, Blues, Ospreys and Zebre)
            Away only - 2 of (Glasgow, Blues, Ospreys and Zebre)

              No Munster had 11 home games last season, so will only have 10 this season.

                You are indeed correct Sir, must be the heat. So in that case:

                H&A - Ulster, Leinster, Connacht, Scarlets, Edinburgh, Dragons, Treviso and Southern Kings.
                Home only - Cheetahs, 1 of (Glasgow, Blues, Ospreys and Zebre)
                Away only - 3 of (Glasgow, Blues, Ospreys and Zebre)

                Team
                HG in 17/18
                SA 17/18
                Connacht 10 1
                Glasgow 10 1
                Ospreys 10 1
                Leinster 10 2
                Zebre 10 2
                Scarlets 10 2
                Ulster 11 1
                Treviso 11 1
                Dragons 11 1
                Munster 11 2
                Edinburgh 11 2
                Blues 11 2

                  No change to the conferences for 18/19.

                  Q: Will it be the same format as last season or will you re-jig the conferences?
                  A: It will be the same two conferences, with teams playing the other sides in their section home and away and then teams from the other conference either home or away.
                  The one change is we will reverse the cross-conference fixtures.

                    Interesting to note that the boss man suggests 16 is the number of teams which would work for the league best in terms of reducing the number of games played, especially during the AI/6N windows.

                      At a guess in a Pro 16: 4 sections of 4: Irish, Welsh, South African and Scottish/Italian. Play H&A v sides in your own section to keep derbies and play the other 12 sides split Home and Away - 18 game season. Playoffs could be winner of each section then next 4 best sides in terms of points. Euro spots could be the section winners + next best 3 sides in terms of points.

                          Think I will go with the guy who runs the league over wiki [emoji6]

                          This is a very recent interview.

                            Everybody who had 10 home games last season will have 11 this time around, to give that equity.
                            And if you only play a team once and were away to them last season, you will be at home this time around.
                            So we will leave the conferences as they are for this coming season.
                            That gives us stability and a chance to build rivalries within those conferences.
                            We will look at that competition again after next season and maybe have a rejig then.

                              So which venue will lose a match and will the Season Ticket holders for that venue get a refund of some of what they paid?
