Finally done the double! Thought we were better than winning by 8 points but who the hell cares!! History made...
Congratulations @leinsterrugby! Another richly deserved title. Great effort from @scarlets_rugby but Sexton and co just too clinical.— Hefin Jones (@LWOShefinjones) May 26, 2018
Dominant, what a performance
As a Munster fan I have to say well done Leinster. Very impressive all season and well deserved double.
Thank you for not giving me a triple heart attack boys. That was much easier on the nerves @leinsterrugby #COYBIB #ISAISAISA Well played @scarlets_rugby for never giving up #rugbyunited @RugbyLeinster_ @RugbyScarlets #LEIvSCA— Richard Mifsud (@Richmif) May 26, 2018
Ignore the scoreline, Leinster absolutely hammered them today. Are some performance from 1 to 23. History made and the long awaited double is complete. Beyond happy Leinster fan today. Allez Les Bleus !!!
From a Munster fan. A superb side with unreal strength in depth. Isa is some role model fr any up and coming Pro. Lancaster's role in the development of this side goes without due recognition. Re strength in depth I believe IRFU will look to move some squad members to other provinces to ensure they get appropriate level game time to help transition to International Squad. Look at the #7 position SOB, JDdF, DL who will be first choice next season, at #8 Conan will have Deegan and Doris snapping at his heels ....etc .
Champagne rugby from @leinsterrugby Champions of Europe and the Pro14. Credit to Leo, Stuart and all the squad. Another reason to be a proud Irishman today #LEIvSCA #Pro14Final #IsaDay #Leinster Immense from @JohnnySexton @jameslowenz @SeanCronin2 Thanks lads— NoelCuddy☘️🇮🇪🏉📷 (@noelcuddy) May 26, 2018
Great performance. Well done Leinster, so well deserved 👏👏
Dream season for some of the players on the squad - 6 nations, triple crown, ERC and the Pro14 all in one season! Says alot about Irish rugby 🥇🏆🏉

Absolutely a joy to watch. A great effort from the whole team. Happy happy happy 😃
Great send off for Isa, what a year and what a performance!
Leinster’s hunger and work rate in the final minute of a very long season speaks volumes. European Champs. Double winners. Congrats @leinsterrugby ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️— BrenTán Hurley (@brendanhurley) May 26, 2018
Men v boys. Sexton is amazing. If there was a third game though...
Gareth Bale is a Scarlets fan and has just heard Sexton is a massive Liverpool fan...
What a team, what a send off for Isa. So proud of the boys

40-32 to cap off a massive season for Leinster. Europe & domestic champions. 👏👏👏👏👏 ⭐⭐⭐⭐— Manus Lappin (@EmeraldRugby) May 26, 2018
This team has a lot of years in them. Can see a few more stars being added to the jersey
Finally over the line on the double and it took an incredible effort. Scored five tries and needed them all. Unbelievable year top notch squad. Leo and Stuart have done a brilliant job. Honourable mention for the scarlets, great team and play a fantastic brand of rugby.
Larmour’s one-handed pick-up at speed was a touch of class. @leinsterrugby #LEIvSCA #GuinnessPro14Final— Dara Hayes 🇮🇪🇪🇺 (@dbmhayes) May 26, 2018
Scarlets are a super team & were deserving Champions last year. I really enjoy watching them.
A different league this season.
Great advert for Rugby.. Two class teams ... What a season for Leinster.
Referee Stuart Berry with no regard for those who want to watch the Champions League final as he reviews an irrelevant try on the big screen. Game has been on for nearly two hours, but has been over for ages.— Rúaidhrí O'Connor (@RuaidhriOC) May 26, 2018
Well done , Leinster. Johnny Sexton lead the win, what a star!
Marie O' Flynn
Oh my goodness the boys have been totally awesome this year. Thank you Leinster 💙💙💙💙
Breaking: James Ryan wins rugby match. In other news, the grass is green.23/23.

Great performance by the boys. Hard luck scarlets, great game. Great tries by both teams.
Incredible performance from the men in blue. Given how Luke McGrath played it makes his omission from the Ireland squad perplexing
That scoreline flatters Scarlets. Well done Leinster #Pro14Final— Michelle (@CorkSeashell) May 26, 2018
The double. Unprecedented. Epic.

Amazing end to the perfect season for Ireland and Leinster. Am floating on air. Bring on Cheika's Oz!!!!!!!!
Riocard Ó Tiarnaigh
Great result, performance, season and squad! Congrats Leinster folks! Enjoy it!
Leo said seeing Isa lifting trophy was highlight of day. Due to Isa's injuries, he said "I feel a little bit like an irresponsible parent to have him out there today but it was hard to deny him. To see him lift the trophy, nobody deserves it more."— Gerry Thornley (@gerrythornley) May 26, 2018
Well played Leinster. Great game. Great try from Larmour.
When you come at the kings.......... you know the rest
After Leinster won the Champions Cup, there was talk would they be able to "get up" for Munster. Then questions would they be too tired for Scarlets.These boys are ruthless.
— The Loose Head (@TheLooseH) May 26, 2018
EPIC! I think that’s all that needs to be said!
Some of the tries we scored were magnificent💙👏
Sexton's the best in the business right now. As good as it gets in the #10 shirt and only getting better with age #LEIvSCA— Three Red Kings (@threeredkings) May 26, 2018
Halliday Honestly best team won on the day but I find it an absolute joke that the final was in Ireland AGAIN
Taz Nicky Wayne
Taz Pro14 wanted the final to be in Cardiff but WRU turned it down for some reason, apparently there was some Monster Truck gig on there today. Rumour that it will be in Celtic Park Glasgow next year. There is no Irish conspiracy !!!

Congrats to the Leinster Rugby family, you truly are the benchmark for the rest of us 👏👏🙌🏆🏆#Pro14 #ChampionsCup #DoubleChampions @LeinsterRugby @OLSCRugby @RugbyLeinster_ @RugbyKinoet al.......

That's a team that has forgotten how to lose. Once in a lifetime you see teams like that, if you're lucky . How lucky are we ?? Raw talent & the twin gifts of phenomenal focus and hard, tactical work. It's been a joy. 😍
We just know how to win.
Edit: thanks for the seats Harpo.
Finally getting to bed.

Great way to round off the season, particularly for Isa. When they've had the big guns out, and some times even when they didn't, Leinster have been great to watch. Clinical, focused, hard working... It starts from head coach all the way down to the academy player who carried a tackle bag twice. Leinster are building something special, I really hope it keeps going.
Can't believe how great that was... so many players to single out over an incredible season. But the Larmour try though.... Jack Conan was my man of the match by a long shot.
Most importantly.. we made our way over to the tunnel at the end after the presentation and the lap where the players acknowledged the crowd and and forked out a load of gear to the kids waiting to meet their heroes. They weren't expecting it but it added a lot to to the experience to them and their joy emphasised how much winning two cups means to the Leinster faithful. A squad of winners all round.
(Carbery is ours)
Baz C. Ryan
The perfect blend of tactics and execution from Sexton inspired all around him to put away a very strong and determined Scarlets outfit. Worthy champions of a league that's going from strength to strength. #LEIvSCA #COYBIB #TheDouble #FarewellToIsa— Harpin' On Rugby 🏉 (@HarpinOnRugby) May 26, 2018
