Munster Final details

Munster will face Leinster in the Guinness PRO14 final at the RDS. Inpho

The final chapter of the Guinness PRO14 will take place on Saturday, March 27 when Munster take on Leinster at the RDS Arena with a 5pm kick-off time.

The game will be broadcast live by eir Sport and TG4 in the Republic of Ireland, with Premier Sports screening the contest live across the UK in addition to DAZN’s coverage in Italy and SuperSport’s showing in South Africa.

Despite their historic rivalry and track record of high-placed finishes in the Championship, this will be only the third time that Leinster and Munster have faced each other in deciding game of the season. The first encounter took place on December 15, 2001 at the old Lansdowne Road where a 14-man Leinster side won the first-ever Celtic League trophy.

It was 10 years later when the teams would duel it out for the Celtic crown when Munster defeated Leinster at Thomond Park on May 28, 2011.

Now, having won their respective Conferences in the Guinness PRO14, Leinster will host Munster by virtue of their superior match point total at their home ground.

The winner will become the 20th champion of the tournament since it began life as the Celtic League in 2001.
