What's at stake on the final day of the Pro12

We take a look at the permutations for all 12 clubs on the final day of matches in the Pro12 on Saturday.

1 Ospreys – Pts 70 W15 PD +184

v Connacht (A)

A bonus-point win in Galway will assure the Welshmen of a top-two finish and home semi-final on games won, the next deciding criteria in the event of a tie on total points.

2 Glasgow - Pts 70 W15 PD +158

v Ulster (H)

Looking for a bonus-point victory over Ulster to claim second place at least as they lead Munster on number of games won.

3 Munster – Pts 70 W14 PD +191

v Dragons (H)

Simply need to do better in Cork than either Glasgow or Ospreys manage in their games as they have won one game less.

4 Ulster - Pts 69 W14 PD +174

v Glasgow (A)

Need a bonus-point win in Glasgow and rely on a Connacht or Dragons victory to seal a home semi.

5 Leinster – Pts 57 W10 PD +95

v Edinburgh (H)

European qualification is secure but Champions Cup seeding based on league positions next season means they will be desperate to hang onto fifth place.

6 Scarlets – Pts 53 W10 PD +60

v Treviso (A)

Hold the last automatic qualifying position and a win in Italy would see them home. Can still overtake Leinster and finish fifth.

7 Connacht – Pts 49 W10 PD +32

v Ospreys (H)

Need a bonus point win and Scarlets loss to claim sixth, or a four-point win and Scarlets loss without a losing BP. Must finish above Edinburgh to claim seventh and a spot in a Champions Cup play-off opener at Gloucester.

8 Edinburgh – Pts 48 W10 PD -7

v Leinster (H)

Slim hopes of sixth now but will target seventh and a Euro play-off with a win in Dublin and Connacht losing in Galway.

9 Dragons – Pts 41 W8 PD –68

v Munster (A)

Cannot change league position but can ruin Munster's hopes of a home semi-final.

10 Cardiff Blues – Pts 30 W6 PD -139

v Zebre (H)

Only pride at stake for the Blues, already consigned to their worst league finish and points total.

11 Treviso – Pts 18 W3 PD -331

v Scarlets (H)

Must win or at least claim a losing bonus point to hold off Zebre for Euro qualification next season.

12 Zebre – Pts 15 W3 PD -349

v Cardiff Blues (A)

Can overtake Treviso and claim the Italian Champions Cup berth if they win and their compatriots lose without a bonus point.
