Leinster 13 - 3 Munster

Leinster will get the opportunity to defend their Pro 14 title after besting Munster in the Aviva tonight.

A try in the 28th minute for Rónan Kelleher proved to be the decider in an underwhelming meeting between the two provinces.

The TMO awarded the try after the 22-year-old got in over the line from the back of Leinster's maul.

Captain Johnny Sexton added the conversion to give them a 10 - 3 lead going into the second half.

A second penalty for Sexton in the 68th minute was the fly-half's last involvement in the game and ultimately the final score of the match.

JJ Hanrahan's penalty was the visitors' only appearance on the scoresheet, missing an opportunity to add some much needed points in the second half.
