  1. Now it's knock-out rugby

    That's all from me folks... Thanks for your company today. There were tries raining in all over the place as the final league standings were settled. 

    There will be some soul-searching at Ospreys and Edinburgh in particular, while Connacht have come on leaps and bounds much to the delight of their raucous support.

    It's not over though. Not by a long shot. 

    The play-offs beckon.

  2. Townsend proud of Warriors

    Defending champions Glasgow missed out on a club record of 10 consecutive wins but head coach Gregor Townsend is not dwelling on it...

  5. Glasgow need to keep the heid in re-match

    The other semi-final should be a belter too. But some dry weather might help. Today's game at the Sportsground was not much of a spectacle, with lots of bruising tackles in the damp conditions. Connacht defended with more steel than the Warriors.

    Glasgow head coach Gregor Townsend may also have a few words to say to prop Sila Puafisi, who was sent off for leading with his head just a few minutes into the second half.

  6. Leinster finish as top dogs

    Leinster finish top and quite rightly so, since they have won more games than anyone else; 16 to the 15 of Connacht and 14 of Glasgow and Ulster. The Dubliners are formidable at the RDS but Ulster gave them a thumping last week and were in good form again today, running in a big score at Ospreys. That promises to be an absolute cracker.

  7. Connacht 14-7 Glasgow

    'Glasgow can go to Galway and win'

    Andy Nicol

    Former Scotland international on BBC One Scotland

    "Glasgow will like the prospect of going back to Galway in the semis.  If the conditions are better, they will have a great chance.  They will also feel they have a grievance after the sending-off.  They will want to go there and keep 15 men on the field.  Glasgow can go to Galway and win. Maybe avoiding Ulster, who have had two very good wins in the last two weeks, is no bad thing. It might be a good result for Glasgow. I think they can go there and become the first team to win a semi-final away from home."

  8. Ospreys miss out on Europe's top tier for first time

    Former Ospreys coach and BBC Scrum V pundit Sean Holley

    "For the Ospreys it's the first time out of the upper echelons of Europe, how are they gouing to bounce back?

    "If you're Alun Wyn Jones and Dan Biggar you don't want to play in the Challenge Cup, you want to be in the top competition.

    "They are used to dining at the top table and attracting signings for the following year - for recruitment it is huge."

  9. All set for the play-offs

    The top four stay the same but the order is shaken up as Leinster go top and Glasgow topple down to third.

    This is how the play-off semi-finals look:

    Leinster v Ulster

    Connacht v Glasgow Warriors

    I'll just remind you that no home team has ever lost since the play-offs were introduced in 2008-09.

  11. Full-time - Munster 31-15 Scarlets

    Munster get the job done to stay in sixth place and Scarlets will have to be satisfied with joining them in the European Champions Cup.

  12. Full-time - Connacht 14-7 Glasgow

    Connacht defend with real resolve, as they have all day, to see out a crucial victory.

    These two will meet again at the Sportsground in the semi-finals in a fortnight.

  13. Try - Munster 31-15 Scarlets (Scannell)

    A second try of the day for Rory Scannell and Johnny Holland thumps over the conversion, just to make double sure.

  14. Connacht 14-7 Glasgow

    A huge brawl breaks out as the teams scrum down near the home line. It's so tense. If Glasgow can sneak a converted try for the draw, they will finish second.

    No home side has ever lost a Pro12 semi-final. That's how big home advantage is...

  15. Connacht 14-7 Glasgow

    Still going in Galway and 14-man Glasgow are giving it a real good go, only for a spell of intense pressure to end with a knock-on.

  16. Try - Munster 24-15 Scarlets (Stander)

    CJ Stander adds a bonus point for Munster just to be sure...

  17. Full-time - Leinster 50-19 Treviso

    Garry Ringrose grabs Leinster's seventh try right on the whistle as Leinster secure a home semi-final. At the moment, it will be against Ulster, but still depends on Connacht-Glasgow...

  18. Full-time - Zebre 47-22 NG Dragons

    Zebre save their best for last, recovering from a 10-try mauling at Glasgow to rout the Dragons in Parma and claim a place in the Champions Cup next season.

  19. Full-time - Ospreys 26-46 Ulster

    Ulster secure play-off spot

    Ulster secure fourth place and an away semi-final - against Leinster as it stands, though that may change depending on the outcome of Connacht-Glasgow...

  20. Full-time - Edinburgh 17-21 Cardiff Blues

    These two swap places on the final day, with Edinburgh throwing away a half-time lead to finish the season in ninth place.
