Guinness Interprovincial Title for Leinster

09/05/02.Leinster collected their second trophy of the season when they defeated Connacht 49-20 at the Sportsground in Galway to claim the Guinness Interprovincial Championship title.

Centre Brian O’Driscoll helped himself to two tries with captain Reggie Corrigan, Simon Keogh and Peter McKenna adding to the tally.
In the closing minutes, Aiden McCullen, who, along with the entire Leinster bench was given a taste of the action, put the gloss on the win with a score under the posts.
