Ten rounds to go...and despite all the doom and gloom, Leinster sit fourth in the Pro12 table just four points behind the leaders.
Not a bad time to have a look at our remaining schedule. The good news...we still have both Italian teams at home (though including a nasty 5-day turnaround before the visit of Zebre). The bad news...6 of our remaining 10 matches are away including trips to ALL FOUR Welsh regions plus Ulster.
Still though...the other teams around us on the Pro12 table have to play each other so there's certainly a lot to play for...as ever, points earned during the Six Nations could prove decisive.
