FOR THE FIRST time since the playoffs were introduced in 2009/10 — when Tommy Bowe’s Ospreys beat Leinster in the RDS — the Guinness Pro12 final will be held outside of Ireland.

Murrayfield will be the venue on Saturday, 28 May 2016 marking just the second time the highest seed won’t have home advantage in the final following last season’s decider at Ulster’s Kingspan Stadium.

As well as Dublin and Belfast, finals have also been staged in Thomond Park.

This season’s final is set to be broadcast live on TV by Sky Sports, with other broadcast partners confirmed once finalists are known.
