Magners League: Round 4 Preview

Magners League: Round 4 Preview

It is Round 4 of the Magners League this weekend with an all-Ireland match-up undoubtedly the highlight of the round. Current league leagers and European champions Munster will head to Dublin for Sunday’s crunch clash with league title holders Leinster, who are currently in fourth place and defending a superb home record.

The Ospreys are in second place despite their defeat at the RDS last weekend and this Saturday they face bottom side Ulster at the Liberty Stadium, with the Irishmen the only team without a win this season.

The round, however, kicks-off on Friday with three games, all featuring Welsh regions.

Cardiff Blues are at home to Connacht, who have not won at the Arms Park since 2001.

Newport Gwent Dragons entertain Edinburgh, with both teams looking for their second win of the season, while the Scarlets go north to Glasgow, where a win would take them top for at least 24 hours.
