Also, some context to Round 21 taken off the Leinster website;

Leinster website wrote:What teams need to qualify for Semi-Finals:
Leinster: Home Semi-Final secured
Munster: 2 points a Home Semi-Final
Scarlets: 7 points for a Semi-Final
Ospreys: 8 points for a Semi-Final
Ulster: 10 points for a Semi-Final (due to Ospreys v Ulster in Round 21 only one of those teams can earn the points totals listed)
Glasgow Warriors criteria: The Scottish outfit need the maximum 10 points from their final two games against Leinster and Edinburgh to stand any chance whatsoever of reaching the Semi-Finals whilst also relying on other results involving Scarlets, Ospreys and Ulster.

If two or more teams finish with the same number of Championship points, their placings will be determined by the following criteria in descending order:
number of matches won
the difference between points for and points against
the number of tries scored
the most points scored
the difference between tries for and tries against
the fewest number of suspensions
the fewest number of yellow cards received
toss of a coin

All Round 22 games take place simultaneously on Saturday, May 6, at 5.15pm.

For ease of reference.

Ulster and Osprey are very close on a number of head2head categories. Any finishing level with Scarlets most likely get caught out by Scarlets total matches won.

As for this game, the long weekend is meant to be poor conditions which is a shame as Glasgow will need to go for the TBP and that could make it an entertaining and open game (famous last words).
This is Mike Ross' last regular season game at the RDS. The big fella retires at the end of the season.
It's interesting to see both Rory O'Loughlin and Tom Daly (no the other Tom Daly) chosen for the centres with Reid being left on the bench. Does he have a knock or is this a move down the pecking order for him.
