Magners League: Round 3 Preview

Magners League: Round 3 Preview

Munster, the Scarlets and the Ospreys will all look to keep their 100% records intact when the Magners League enters its third round this weekend.

The two Welsh regions are both away on Friday night, with the Scarlets at Edinburgh, where they will be looking to buck the trend of only one win in Scotland in their last eight league visits.

The Ospreys travel to the RDS to face champions Leinster who are protecting a record of only one defeat in their last 27 games in Dublin.

The third undefeated side, Munster, are coming off the back of their big win over the Newport Gwent Dragons last weekend with another home game against Welsh opposition – they entertain the Cardiff Blues on Saturday evening.

Elsewhere, two teams without a win meet on Friday night when the Dragons visit Ireland again, this time to face Ulster in Belfast.

The final fixture, also on Friday night, pits the Glasgow Warriors against Connacht, who are looking for their first points in the league so far this season, in Galway.
