Former Ireland head coach Eddie O'Sullivan is tipping Leinster to see off Ulster in this weekend's action.
He was chatting to Ger Gilroy on Friday's Off The Ball as the latest round of Guinness Pro14 inter-pros continue. Leinster host Ulster on Saturday at the RDS. Meanwhile, Munster visit Connacht at the Sportsground.
For the Leinster and Ulster game, Eddie pointed out that neither side is at full strength.
"It's a hard one to call. I still think Leinster will get it done. If Ulster probably had a couple more horses on field, they would probably have a chance of doing it but not with the team they've picked. I think Leinster will get it done," he said.
Eddie also feels that the festive period would have taken on a different complexion for Connacht if they'd held on against Leinster.
"So if Connacht lose again against Munster, that would kind of put Munster right up there with Glasgow Warriors and they'd have some separation," he said.
"And Connacht could be in a scrap with the Ospreys if they beat Cardiff and overtake Connacht. So Connacht could go from putting themselves right in the firing line for the playoffs tomorrow to actually be dropping down to fourth and out of the playoffs. So there's a lot of pressure on Connacht for that reason.

"But they've played really good rugby and they've looked very comfortable in their skin and I think they're hoping for more of the same.
"But I think Munster, on the other hand, now know that it's away form that they're not delivering. It's time they turned that around or they're going to be under pressure at the end of the season."
