Leinster defeat Munster comfortably in Pro14 Final

LEINSTER DEFEATED Munster in the Pro14 Final on Saturday evening, in what can only be described as a dominant display.

The game was played in the RDS in Dublin, and saw the home team put on a classy display across the entire pitch, with Leinster winning the game 16-6.

Somehow, Leinster did not go in ahead at the break, and Munster will have been delighted that they weren't completely out of sight before the second half begun.

At 6-6, Leinster squandered chance after chance, partly thanks to some decent defending from Munster, but the game could have been virtually over before a ball was touched in the second half if Leinster had been more clinical.

But Leinster's pressure was relentless, and eventually it paid off, in the form of an impressive try from Jack Conan.

Munster did their absolute utmost to prevent the men in blue from getting it over the line, but it was a tall ask to keep them at bay for a whole half.

Some tasty kicks from Leinster's Ross Byrne ensured the game was out of sight, and Hugo Keenan continued to impress, as he seems to do every time he gets out on the pitch.

Robbie Henshaw was also one of the standout performers on the pitch, and must be in the conversation when discussing Ireland's best players at the minute.

Munster fans will be slightly disappointed that their wait for a trophy goes on, and may wonder if things might have been different if they were there to cheer their team on.
