With table toppers Munster not in action, second placed Ospreys have the chance to move to the summit.
Their battling New Year’s Day showing at Rodney Parade against Newport Gwent Dragons means the West Walians are handily
placed after seven straight wins.
They now host reigning champions and injury-hit Connacht who may be eighth but pushed Munster hard before going down 16-9 at
New Year’s Eve.
Wales flanker Justin Tipuric and international team-mate Dan Biggar will again need to be on form if they are to further
dent Connacht’s title defence.
A key question is, can Ospreys and their formidable back-row go over the five-hour mark without conceding a try?
Scarlets-Ulster is the other stand-out fixture this weekend as Llanelli hosts the meeting of fourth versus sixth.
