Cian Ormond 80 minutes of squeaky bum time.
Bert McLoughlin Not on top form but had the experience to see out the 80 mins with a win
Commiserations to @GlasgowWarriors - played some amazing rugby this season, one of the best teams in the world to watch #GLAvLEI— David Cahill (@docathail) May 25, 2019
Cian Ó Muilleoir Not a perfect game from either team, but a great 'away' performance from Leinster. Leinster's superb defensive line, well-managed rucks and consistently winning the collision area did for Glasgow in the end. Tighter in the end than the difference between the sides I'd say, but I wouldn't press my argument over it. The better team on the day won, and it's another trophy in the cabinet. Happy feckin days!
Mike Reidy Well done Leinster, much needed boost for Irish Rugby, after a relatively disappointing season!
Got to hand it to Leinster, to get up from the champions cup and beat a very, very good Glasgow side is mighty impressive 👏🏻 no where near their best either. They are a champion team that took a fully tooled up Saracens side to stop them doing the double again #GLAvLEI— Gareth Rees (@GTRees1992) May 25, 2019
Colin Mcconaghie Well done Leinster but what a horrible place for fans for a rugby final. Please never again Pro14, rugby stadiums only
Karl Walsh Leinster’s defense was immense. And they proved, yet again, that they know how to win games. The Sarries result hurts and is one that got away but this result ends the season on a high. Super stuff!
Great finish @leinsterrugby to the season, well done #PRO14 #GLAvLEI will celebrate tomorrow after the on-call shift tonight— Martina Ring (@mringster) May 25, 2019
John Broderick What was Sexton thinking not taking 3 points
Sexton’s form worrying
Conan miles ahead of Stander as an 8
Luke mc Graths work rate unbelievable and will def push Murray depending on how joe wants to play
Big boost for World Cup
Glasgow would have destroyed Munster
James Griffin (Munster fan) Congrats Leinster people! Happy for you!
Fair play @leinsterrugby two years in a row, well done @GlasgowWarriors you put up a good fight but simply not good enough #GLAvLEI— Katie Brennan🌙 (@kxtiebrennxn) May 25, 2019
John Peeters Back to back Pro 14 winners. Not to be sniffed at. And we go again next season. Was hugely impressed by Leinster’s back row.
We go again next season
Ginette Mifsud Weeeeeeee are the Champions my friends!!!!! 💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙

Cormac Mannion Quite a different win to last year in the Aviva but probably more impressive. Thought we should have made more of that period in the second half when we were camped on their line.
Great to defend the title and round off what has been a mixed bag of a season as a Leinster and Ireland supporter.
Noel Hewson Tough game as expected. Leinster’s experience was a factor. Stellar season good to get a trophy and that’s 3 from 4 in two seasons.
Boo all you want Glasgow Warriors supporters! It didn’t matter in the end! Absolutely fantastic final! #GLAvLEI— Clare Molloy (@ClareeMolloy) May 25, 2019
Conor Cronin Leinster know how to grind out a win even in the toughest of circumstances. That was a very difficult Glasgow team, they wanted to give nothing away. But Leinster showed that with a little luck, a lot of preparation and determination anything is possible. Very proud of the lads for putting aside critics, bad results etc and showing what champions are made of
Andrew Potts Good win just about, seriously there is a few generations of Leinster out halfs who will be wondering why at about ten mins to go on their 22 and multiple phases why Leinster did not set up a drop goal. 21/10 would have been a killer
Watched both Prem semis and the @PRO14Official final and the best game of the lot undoubtedly from the much maligned PRO14. An absolutely fantastic final. Couldn’t take the eyes off it. #PRO14 #Rugby #GLAvLEI— JK (@eggchasingcoach) May 25, 2019
Riocard Ó Tiarnaigh Luke McGrath was my MOTM. That charge down on Hogg was the deciding act. It took the wind out of their sails and got us on the scoreboard. Great performance which shows mental fortitude after the disappointment of Newcastle.
Sharon Murphy Best team won; not impressed with Glasgow fans. Come on leinster
Olwen Barrett What a result!! Great way to end the season after the disappointment of Newcastle!
Never gave up but just kept going to grind out a win over a tough Glasgow side, showing what true champions are made of! Healy, Ringrose, McGrath, Conan, Ryan all immense but all players made their presence felt.
Lovely to see SOB lift the trophy, great way to say goodbye and thanks!
Onwards to 2020..... can we do the triple?? 💙💙💙
Richard Collumb Great win! Nice way to end the season
Great win there by @leinsterrugby- really had to dog that out in the end. Fantastic result in the context of the last few weeks 🏆 #GLAvLEI— Ross MacMathúna (@RossMacM) May 25, 2019
Alan Eastwood Great game. Fair play to Leinster fuck all teams would lose a heino final and come back to win them 2 games.
Kate O'Leary (reply to Alan) fair point. Thought larmour had a storming game. Great win!
Paradise won! Credit to Glasgow for making it close though we had the edge in both decision making and accuracy. But further analysis can wait...LEINSTER ARE @GUINNESSPRO14 CHAMPIONS!!! 👍 👍 👍 #Number6 #GLAvLEI #COYBIB— Harpin' On Rugby 🏉 (@HarpinOnRugby) May 25, 2019
