Ulster's final-day showdown against Glasgow Warriors in Scotstoun will take top billing on Saturday's final round of Guinness Pro12 games, with Sky Sports set to televise the meeting of second and fourth.

Munster's attempts to force their way into a home semi-final will be on TG4, while Connacht's crucial meeting with Ospreys will not be shown on Irish television - with Welsh station S4C set to broadcast their pivotal final outing.

Competition organisers have confirmed the kick-off times for the play-offs, with Munster set to have their preferred Saturday afternoon kick-off time if they gain home advantage.

Similarly, Ulster will be given a Friday kick-off if they're at home, unless Glasgow are also at home for their semi-final.
