The RaboDirect PRO12 is now down to 10 teams with Scotland entering only two teams - Glasgow Warriors and Edinburgh Rugby. This reduction allows for a later start to the competition, - 22 September 2007 - to accommodate the Rugby World Cup.
A number of measures are introduced by Celtic Rugby to align the tournament with other professional rugby competitions, including the introduction of Television Match Officials and Citing Commissioners on matchdays.
After early dominance by Welsh teams, Leinster take over at the top of the table in late November and remain there to lift the RaboDirect PRO12 title- their second league trophy - on the penultimate weekend of the season, in front of a packed crowd at the RDS.
