Ospreys’ 26-23 defeat of Cardiff Blues on 27 April earned them a play-off place, but they might now qualify automatically for the Champions Cup

Ospreys and Scarlets might have to wait until the end of May to play-off for a place in the European Champions Cup.

It has also emerged that Ospreys could qualify automatically with Cardiff Blues facing Scarlets instead.

That could happen if Leinster beat Saracens in this season’s Champions Cup final on 11 May AND the last four in the second-tier Challenge Cup all qualify through their domestic leagues.

It follows a “clarification” by Pro14 administrators.
