The Final Chapter of the Guinness PRO14 will take place on 27 March with Leinster Rugby facing Munster Rugby at the RDS Arena (KO 5pm).

The game will be broadcast live by eir Sport and TG4 in Ireland, with Premier Sports screening the contest live across the UK in addition to DAZN’s coverage in Italy and SuperSport’s showing in South Africa.

Despite their historic rivalry and track record of high-placed finishes in the Championship, this will be only the third time that Leinster and Munster have faced each other in deciding game of the season. The first encounter took place on 15 December 2001 at the old Lansdowne Road where a 14-man Leinster side won the first-ever Celtic League trophy.

It was 10 years later when the teams would duel it out for the Celtic crown when Munster saw off the freshly-minted European champions at Thomond Park on 28 May 2011.

Now, having won their respective Conferences in the Guinness PRO14, Leinster will host Munster by virtue of their superior match point total at their home ground.

The winner will become the 20th champion of the tournament since it began life as the Celtic League in 2001. Leinster are seeking to extend their record by winning an eighth title, while Munster are aiming to win their fourth title and first since 2011.
