The Top Performers From Leinster’s PRO14 Final Win Against Glasgow

Leinster secured back-to-back Guinness PRO14 titles thanks to a hard-fought 18-15 win over the Glasgow Warriors at Celtic Park on Saturday night. 

Due to the wet conditions, the quality of the match was reduced to what can only be described as a ‘slug-fest’ but it was Leinster’s composure and ability to play in such circumstances which saw them eke out a three-point margin of victory.

After a long season, the title is a perfect reward for a job well done with the eastern province using 57 players throughout the campaign to get them to this point.

The loss to Saracens in the Champions Cup final will still hurt but Leo Cullen’s side will know that the gap between them and Mark McCall’s team isn’t as big as some might suggest.

In the win over the Warriors, some of the top performers were those who have stood up throughout the season with the likes of Jack Conan, James Ryan, Cian Healy and James Lowe particularly impressing.
