Thinking back to the super Saturday of rugby we had at the end of the Six Nations in 2015, it gives me goose-bumps looking at what's in store tomorrow in the Pro12, writes David Wallace.

The organisers couldn't have planned the last day of the season any better, and with most games having something major riding on them, it could be one of the best days in Pro12 history.

There are teams fighting it out for the top two positions so they can get a home semi-final, teams who are on the brink of the semi-finals and just want to get themselves over the line, so they will be in the semis.

Then we have Munster, Ospreys and Edinburgh all vying for that sixth position and the crucial Champions Cup qualification spot. And towards the bottom Treviso are one point ahead of Zebre in the battle for Italy's Champions Cup berth.

I've never seen a final day scenario like this with so much on the line, in this competition, and it can only be good for rugby and for the league as a product.

It was a massive boost when Sky came in to cover the games, but it doesn't matter what coverage they get if there's nothing at stake in the matches.
