IT WAS A day of high drama in the Guinness Pro12 with Leinster, Munster and Ulster all securing bonus-point wins while Connacht saw off Glasgow as the play-off lineup was confirmed.

Leinster’s eight-try demolition of Treviso secured top spot for Leo Cullen’s side and a semi-final clash with provincial rivals Ulster.

The two sides will lock horns at the RDS on Friday 20 May at 7.45pm in a repeat of the 2013 final, which saw Leinster win their third title.

In the other semi-final, Connacht will entertain defending champions Glasgow Warriors at the Sportsground after the western province got the better of the Scottish side this afternoon.

Pat Lam’s men had already secured a play-off berth but needed to dig deep on the final day to guarantee themselves home advantage in their first ever semi-final.

That game will be played on Saturday 21 May, with a kick-off time of 6.30pm. Both games will be shown live on Sky Sports and TG4.

Leinster have released ticket details for supporters here, with tickets to go on general sale this Wednesday. 

The 2016 Pro12 final will take place at Murrayfield on Saturday 28 May at 5.30pm.
