It was meant to be today the Pro14 fixtures went on sale, Ulster have put the tickets for their opening fixture on sale today

EPCR was mid August last year I believe (18th sticks in my mind for some reason)

First 5 rounds of Pro12 are known even if some weeks are unofficial
Wished they hurry up though as I have a Cape Town trip planned and would like it to include the Ulster game at Lions.
A little diversion while I am there

The Fail online claimed they were going to be yesterday when they put the openning five rounds up the other day.

I guess it is all down to the TV companies picking what is going to be shown by who. But I think it is likely there is going to be poor travelling support for the first weekend or two.

Thanks Marty.
Fair number of matches with no tv coverage over the first couple of weeks.  That probably puts a ky-bosh on have a TMO available for every match, when there isn't a proper 'T' at the ground.

From my own teams point of view, we need to be well in the mix coming into the final month of the season, at which point 2 of the last 3 fixtures are home games against Zebre and Treviso respectively. Must have it wrapped up before the final round of games though as we rarely come away from Galway with a decent result.

2 away games in SA next month........ tempting.

The SA games just haven't had a broadcaster announced, 12 games without tv coverage over 13 rounds isn't a bad number considering most leagues only get a few games every round live on tv

Whilst it seems to have taken forever, fair play they seem to have sorted the broadcasting out. Hardly any games going without being shown.
