**The race for a place in the Guinness PRO14 Rainbow Cup final is nearing its climax ahead of a mouth-watering last two rounds of action.**\n\nHere, we take a look at how the contenders in the northern section of the competition are shaping up as they bid to take on the best South Africa has to offer. \n\n**Benetton (Played: 4, Points: 18)** \n\nWho could have predicted that Benetton would be in the box seat at this stage of the competition with their fate in their own hands? \n\nAs well as collecting back-to-back victories over Italian rivals Zebre, the men from Treviso have also registered impressive wins against Glasgow Warriors and Connacht - all of this coming on the back of a regular season in which they failed to win a single game. \n\nBenetton have just one fixture remaining - away to the Ospreys in Round 6 – and know victory in that match will be enough to earn a place in the final. \n\nTheir trip to Bridgend will be their first match outside Italy during the competition but they will be more motivated than ever to get the job done.
