Pro12 Returns

The Pro12 will resume this week alongside the final round of autumn international games. Friday sees a huge evening of action for the Welsh sides, with Cardiff Blues visiting current Champions Connacht; Ospreys travelling to Glasgow; and Scarlets hosting Leinster.

Newport Gwent Dragons conclude the weekend with a home game against Edinburgh on Sunday afternoon.

All of the pro12 teams will of course be missing some of their international players, which means I am expecting some extremely close and fiercely contested games this weekend. Blues face a Connacht side starting to find some form after a terrible start to the season, and could do with a win to re-establish their position in the top half of the league table. An away win in Galway would be a great statement.

I hope to see Willis Halaholo feature again after a man-of-the-match performance on his debut, against Treviso. He scored a peach of a try, throwing an outrageous dummy pass and showing some pace. He promises to be quite a live-wire, and the prospect of his mid-field partnership with former Hurricanes team-mate Ray Lee-Lo shows a great deal of promise indeed.
