PRO14 have released a statement confirming they made a mistake earlier today in terms of the seeding for next season’s expanded 24-team Champions Cup.
Connacht were listed as Tier 4 team with Glasgow Warriors in Tier 4 when it fact it should have been the other way round.
The eight highest-ranked teams from the Conference tables from Round 13 will represent the Guinness PRO14 in the Heineken Champions Cup for the 2020/21 season, with the standings as follows:
Conference A: Leinster – 61 points, Ulster – 43 points, Glasgow – 34 points, Dragons – 22 points
Conference B: Edinburgh – 47 points, Munster – 45 points, Scarlets – 37 points, Connacht – 35 points
