Handed two free weekends to work with at short notice by the temporary suspension of the Heineken Champions Cup, organisers of the Guinness PRO14 opted to re-fix one match for each weekend rather than bring forward a full round of fixtures from later in the season.

Considering the teams would have had access to full squads, schedulers are dealing with a finite supply of dates and the matches will now instead go up against Six Nations weekends, so it seems like an opportunity missed.

Now that they've found a home for postponed games between Glasgow Warriors and Edinburgh this Saturday, and Munster and Leinster a week later, there are no fixtures in the books beyond Round 11, which took place last weekend.
