The 2019/20 campaign will culminate in this weekend’s final which takes place at the Aviva Stadium between Leinster and Ulster.
Of course, it has been a disruptive campaign due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic but fans will hope that the season can finish in style with a gripping final.
Supporters won’t have to wait too long to get their PRO14 fix with the 2020/21 season set to start at the beginning of October.
