The 16th day of Guinness Pro 14 takes place this weekend, with Benetton Treviso and Zebra Rugby busy on Friday evenings. For two Italian treacherous voyages on either side of the Irish border, the Venetians embarked on Limerick and the Parmesan in Belfast.
It starts at 7pm at Thomont Park, where Bennett Treviso goes to visit Munster. The Irish dominate Conference B with 59 points from 13 wins and two defeats, and are now guaranteed a place in this year’s Grand Final. Treviso, on the other hand, is still looking to win the Celtic tournament, making the Irish journey very difficult for Sagarbi and his teammates.
However, at 9.15pm we move on to Kingspan Stadium in Belfast, where Ulster gets the Zebras. In this case, the Northern Irish behind Leinster with almost one spin and 59 points from the A Conference – 13 wins and 2 knockouts – are in last place for Bianconeri, but unlike Treviso, they can look for four proud victories in the final. When it comes to green and white, Bonnie and teammates face a very tough challenge.
