PRO14 Conferences for the next two seasons decided

Leinster and Glasgow Warriors have been thrown into the same PRO14 Conference for the next two seasons.

The two sides topped their respective Conferences last season and also reached the PRO14 final, which Leinster edged 18-15 at Celtic Park.

Leinster and Glasgow also topped their respective Conferences in the 2017/18 season, guaranteeing them home semi-finals, but now they’ll have to vie for one spot.

All four Irish teams have swapped Conferences, Leinster and Ulster switch to Conference A, with Munster and Connacht going in the other direction.

Cardiff and the Dragons have also switched.

The Conferences for the 2019/20 & 2020/21 seasons were drawn based upon finishing positions after round 21 of matches last season with teams then ordered from one to 14 based upon their final points totals and then ranked within their union.
