It's been confirmed two South African sides clubs will join Celtic Rugby for the upcoming season.

A downsizing of Super Rugby has seen franchises the Cheetahs and the Southern Kings join with the current Pro12, which will now be known as the Guinness Pro14.

The League has now been split into two conferences, Conference A and Conference B.

Each team will play home and away games against teams in their conference, while they'll play home or away games against the remaining 7 teams in the other Conference.

Each side will also play home and away games against teams in their country, regardless of which conference they'll be in.

The fixtures for the upcoming season have yet to be confirmed, and it's expected they'll be released next week.
