If Munster didn't have Glasgow in their conference, would they have been more likely to top it and earn a home semi and conseque ntly a better chance of winning it?
Who knows, it’s equally likely that Scarlets would of finished above them in 17/18 after obliterating them in the 2017 final. We should probably base the seedings on what actually happened.

Because under the current format teams play 11 home games one season and 10 the next or Visa versa.
Also, apparently this was said to Glasgow supporters, they wanted it so that you got a return fixture in the 5 intra conference games
So in 18 we Gla, Osp & Che away with Car & Zeb home. Which was reversed this season.
Ruddock's tackle stats consistently too low for me to be taken seriously as a Six Nations blindside..... Ruddock's defensive stats don't stack up. - All Blacks Nil, Jan 15th, 2014
England A 8 - 14 Ireland A, 25th Jan 2014

When is the calendar available to load on my phone? It helps with planning and makes it easier to avoid inadvertently accepting invitations to events that clash with matches.

The ticket profits will be split differently, with the home teams pocketing 80 per cent and the away sides taking 20 per cent.
What was it before?
You know I'm going to lose,
And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!

As I understood it previously the home team kept 100% of the receipt money for league games. For Play offs and semi finals, it was split 3 ways between the contenders and the league taking an equal share. With no "prize" money for getting to that stage. This came from the Glasgow forum when we were having the fight about 2 of the derbies being held @ Murrayfield.

Can I ask where you picked this up and if it is profits do the accountants have to get involved to work out what the profit was or is it purely a split of the ticket money taken?

Reading the article here:

I think the bit about shared ticket profits only applies to the all Welsh Judgement Day matches. I could be wrong, as it's a bit ambiguous.

I'd say you're right on both counts - sure ask Simon Thomas on twitter, he's usually very responsive to questions.
