In the Celtic League, the Blues lead the welsh regions and will gain top seeding for Wales in the Heineken Cup if they stay ahead. The other three teams face a battle to secure the final two certain Heineken Cup places. The fourth placed welsh region will face the possible play-off in Italy for the final Heineken Cup place, but only if they finish above the fourth Irish and third Scottish teams in the final standings.
