Fixtures out tomorrow at one pm.

Cheetahs announced four new signings today, from reading online it seems a couple of them have super rugby experience and the centre smit is apparently a highly rated prospect. Three two year deals and one three year deal. Club seems to becoming more stable, they will be much improved and think they have a reasonable chance of sneaking into top three next year, catching Glasgow or Ulster on the hop.

The Cheetahs will also be match fit as they will have an extended pre-season of competitive games via the Currie Cup. A strong start in the 3-4 games during the RWC window will be crucial.

Weekend away for Glasgow as expected. Away game for Leinster and a home tie for Munster.

Away on opening day again. I know it doesn't matter really, but its mad that we've only had 1 opening day at home in the last 8 seasons.

Isn't that something to do with the RDS pitch and the horses, and having to rebuild the stands?

Both SA teams start with three home games. Their first two seasons started on the road.

To be fair. Makes sense to get their games in earlier when it's cooler in SA

Are the SA team home matches not available in Rep. of Ireland?
That's a pity if not. Would like to see how good the SA teams are at the start of the season, hopefully very competitive.

Their rounds 2 and 3 games against Munster and Ulster are on Eir. Cheetahs v Cardiff in round 1 is on Premier Sports.

If the tv bit is accurate then Eir are only going to show about half the games.

I'm guessing that because we will now get the full Premier Sport channel on Sky, that that Eir 2 will no longer be showing Premier Sport content so they will only have the Irish games available to them.

Yea, they are losing the coverage they got for free from Premier.

The premier sports coverage of Pro14 will presumably be blocked in Ireland.
