Leinster retain PRO12 title


Leinster retained their PRO12 title with a 34-12 victory over Glasgow Warriors at the RDS in Brian O'Driscoll and Leo Cullen's final game for the Province.

It was to be no fairytale finish for O'Driscoll, who was forced off injured inside the opening ten minutes, but the legendary centre's Leinster teammates completed the job in his absence.

The Boys in Blue enjoyed top spot of the PRO12 for much of the season but they met an in-form Glasgow side heading into the final with nine league wins on the bounce.

But, playing in their first ever PRO12 Final, the Warriors couldn't vault the final hurdle and Zane Kirchner led the way, involved in all four tries as the Leinstermen retained their title.
