Now that the 6N is over, we can return to domestic matters. My prediction is that it will be a Glasgow versus Scarlets final, with the former winning through a Shane Williams-esque last-minute try (hopefully by then the Scarlets will be worn out from winning the European Cup :cheers: :D ).

Err..a look at the table would tell you that Glasgow vs Scarlets will be the semi final, not the final.

That could change if/when the Scarlets reclaim first place in Conference B.

No it wouldn't, because the fixtures would not have been the same. Conference B get an extra game against the Dragons and the South Africa blind school for example.

Yes it's not perfect, but not a bad indicator of where the teams stand I would say.

Agreed and it's interesting to see how well the Scottish teams have done, mirroring (and to some extent perhaps driving?) the improvement in their national side.
Wales have done pretty well overall under Gats, especially when you consider how shite most if not all of the regions have been for much of that time.
Would be great to see the 4 regions as competitive, or close to, as the Irish next season (which it has to be said is a comment based more on hope than expectation...)
