**The days are getting colder and the nights are getting darker, which means there is no excuse for you to miss a second of the action this weekend, as Round 8 of the Guinness PRO14 season comes calling.**\n\nThree sides head into the weekend unbeaten through seven rounds so far this campaign, with Leinster, Munster and Ulster all yet to test defeat since we got underway in October.\n\nLeo Cullen will take his side to Llanelli to face Scarlets on Sunday afternoon, while Munster host Zebre and Ulster travel to Edinburgh in Monday night’s action.\n\nElsewhere, Connacht and Ospreys get the weekend’s action started on Saturday, before Benetton host Dragons with a first win of the season still in their sights, while Cardiff Blues and Glasgow Warriors do battle at Rodney Parade.\n\nIt promises to be another mouth-watering weekend of action across the continent, and before a ball gets kicked lets take a look at what to keep an eye out for across the three days of rugby. \n\n# Can Benetton bounce back?\n\nIt was agony once again for Benetton last weekend, as Kieran Crowley’s men lost out to a last-gasp try in a 24-22 defeat to 14-man Ospreys in Swansea. \n\nHame Faiva’s hat-trick wasn’t enough for the Italians, who looked to have wrapped the game up with ten minutes to play - holding a 12-point advantage heading into the closing stages. \n\nBut despite Gareth Evans’ red card earlier in the half, the hosts rallied to victory, leaving Benetton still winless after their five matches this season. \u2028\nThe capitulation at the death will be cause for concern for Crowley, with his side’s character coming into question, but a win against the Dragons this weekend will go some way to redeeming themselves. \n\nThe recent history is good for Benetton in this fixture, as they haven’t tasted defeat against the Welsh side in any of their last five meetings, with just a solitary Dragons victory in the past eight times the pair have taken to the field together. \n\nThe visitors are bang out of form as well heading into the weekend, with just one victory in their four matches this season, but with last week’s match being called off they should be raring to go in Treviso this weekend.\n\n# Can Warriors cure away day blues?\n\nAdmittedly there hasn’t been a normal amount rugby this year, but you have to go back to January for the last time that Glasgow Warriors won on the road in the Guinness PRO14, with a 38-19 victory over Benetton in the first week of 2020. \n\nSince then, the wheels have fallen off for the Scottish side on their travels, with three defeats out of three on the road this season, having gone down to Connacht, Ospreys and Ulster already this campaign. \n\nThis Sunday sees Danny Wilson take his troops to Wales to try to arrest their poor run of results, as they go head to head with the Cardiff Blues in Newport. \n\nBoth sides sit fourth in their respective conferences heading into this one, scratching around to find some form to kickstart their seasons.
