Munster are chasing a fourth GUINNESS PRO12 title and their first since they won the final against Leinster at Thomond Park in 2011. That was their most recent appearance in a major final and was their fifth successive victory in the final of all competitions they have contested.

Munster are unbeaten in their last six GUINNESS PRO12 encounters, since losing 26-12 at the Ospreys in round 17 – their only league defeat since New Year’s Day.
The Munstermen have won both of their games against Scottish opponents in 2015, but have triumphed only once in Belfast in their last eight visits.
Glasgow Warriors are bidding to become the first Scottish side ever to carry off the PRO12 title, and are playing in a second successive final following their defeat to Leinster at the RDS twelve months ago. That was Glasgow’s only previous appearance in the final of any major competition.
The Warriors’ lone defeat in their last seven PRO12 outings was 21-10 at the Ospreys on May 8. They have lost just two of their nine fixtures with Irish provinces this season – at Ulster in October and at Munster in February.
The Scotsmen’s only victory at Kingspan Stadium in their last six visits since 2009 was 13-12 over hosts Ulster in September 2013.
Munster’s 22-10 triumph over the Warriors in Cork in round 16 ended a three-match losing run to the Scotsmen, including a 16-15 reversal at Scotstoun Stadium at the semi-final stage last season.
