The permutations of the final week ... will Munster succeed?
Tomorrow's clash at home to provincial rivals Connacht not only offers Munster the opportunity to complete a double over their neighbours, but a victory - coupled with results elsewhere going their way - could see Johann van Graan and his charges qualify for a home PRO14 semi-final.
Glasgow host Edinburgh in the all-Scottish affair at Scotstoun, knowing that a win will secure them a home semi-final.

With three points separating Glasgow and Munster, the onus is on Munster to chase a bonus-point victory to give themselves every chance.
In the event that Munster and Glasgow finish on level points, then the team that has won the most regular-season games will finish top. As things stand, both Glasgow and Munster have won 15 regular-season games. If that fails to separate the teams, points difference will be the deciding factor, which Munster currently hold a 34-point advantage in.
Should Munster finish in second place, they will play Benetton, Edinburgh or Scarlets in a home quarter-final. Should they win their quarter-final, Van Graan's men will play an away semi-final against Leinster.
