Guinness Pro14 live stream: How to watch matches online from anywhere
The 2020-21 Guinness Pro14 campaign started in early October, just a few weeks after Leinster lifted the previous season’s title by beating Ulster at the Aviva Stadium.
League organisers have introduced Monday night fixtures this season, alongside the more regular match days of Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and initially the tournament will just feature the 12 Europe-based teams.
Plans are in place for South African teams to resume playing in the Pro14 in 2021, depending on the latest Covid-19 restrictions. The South African Rugby Union and Pro14 organisers are in discussions over what those teams would be, with the possibility of four SA franchises joining the league.
