When exactly do you suggest that they play it then?

If TV scheduling which happens every weekend of the season, including the 6 Nations, is too difficult for you to grasp, I understand.

It was moved recently to not clash with the Champions League final, looks like they didn't care that its on at the same time as the "other" final. So if Liverpool had not made the final both the Pro 14 and the Aviva final would be on at different times.

Not really an answer to the question though is it

Maybe on Saturday, one on Sunday? It really is not that difficult a concept to grasp I would think?

Would a Sunday attract as many fans and viewers?

With international squads assembling/leaving on Sunday/Monday not really practicable.
I'll ignore the condescension, put it down to you not having your early morning cuppa

Will be interesting to see what the Scarlets do here... their forwards are technically quite good with a good scrum and driving game but lack raw boned physicality ie the big hits and the big carries

Leinster went very direct around the ruck which took away the chance for line speed and catching players behind the gain line.

If Scarlets solve that conundrum they could win but it is a big challenge and I’m not sure how they do that

It will be a great test for Pivac and co as they were so comprehensively beaten in the Euro semi they have to adjust their game plan
Win this and WP is is nailed on as WG successor, lose it and there will still be questions
