I think they've qualified for the Pro 14 play-offs for the first time, and the 2019-2020 Champions Cup automatic.

Great Result and justifies the Italian presence in Pro 14

I hope they do well

No, straight into Europe. Qf vs Munster(away) next week.

Well done! I think they've lost twice since christmas(includes 2 draws). Reaaly surpised Crowley didn't get O'Sheas job.

Not sure how it works now. Does that mean there'll be no Welsh region in the Heineken next year?
Certainly makes it more exciting to finally have a competitive league.

Ospreys and Scarlets are holding a playoff for the last spot.

Possibly benefited from the conference system. Ospreys had more points I think but didn't qualify.

Great to see all the same

Indeed. Been a funny old year for the Welsh regions. As pointed out, the Ospreys finished on more points than Traviso (in the opposite conference), and Cardiff managed to lose all their first 3 games, while leading into the 80th minute. In another year, with the odd bounce of the ball going the other way, Wales would have had 3 odd teams in the playoffs. It is what it is though.

Anywho, I was saying from the get-go this season that Treviso looked a bit of alright. Particularly, they have a seriously meaty pack.

True, but they always had a meaty pack.
They are well trained now and they showed a do or die attitude that let them grasp wins and bonuses.
This made a difference.
Scarlets quiet season helped too
