The play offs next season are different.
The finals will be reversed, Division 1 will be played on Sat 29th May, Division 2 on Sunday 30th May and Division 3 on Monday 31st May.

The reason being that with Euro 2004 taking place soon after, the Div 1 international players will be able to join up with their squads at the same time as the Premiership players.
