Only two teams remain standing in the race to be crowned the 2019/20 Guinness PRO14 champions as Leinster and Ulster prepare to lock horns on Saturday at Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

The all-Irish Final will see Leinster attempt to win their third title after overcoming Munster 13-3 in the last four, maintaining their 100 per cent record in this campaign. Ulster mounted a stunning late comeback to defeat Conference B winners Edinburgh 22-19 in their Semi-Final to book their place in the Guinness PRO14 Final for the second time.
