As spring races towards summer, lots of northern hemisphere rugby is concerned with the great divide of knock-out matches.

The big one this weekend is the final of the PRO14, taking place at Celtic Park in Glasgow with Nigel Owens to referee it, his sixth such final.

There is a final of the División de Honor in Spain, semifinals in England’s premiership, the last league round of France’s Top 14 and the final of ProD2.

The Sevens comes alive again in Paris, the second last tournament in the 2018-19 series.
