The Guinness PRO14 Final itself has established a legacy for drama, top-class rugby and a knack for creating history. Since moving to neutral ‘Destination’ venues in 2015 – starting with Belfast’s Kingspan Stadium – the Guinness PRO14 Final has seen four different champions crowned in as many years while Glasgow Warriors and Connacht Rugby were also first-time title winners.
In each year the attendance has either provided a sell-out or set a new record with last year’s game at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium raising that figure to 46,092. The fixture itself set a number of records on the field with Leinster Rugby and Scarlets combining for the highest total of points (72) and the highest number of tries (9) ever scored in the Championship decider.
Leinster also set themselves apart from the rest of the pack winning their fifth title to step clear of Ospreys who have claimed the trophy four times.
