Last year, Leinster waved coach Joe Schmidt off in style by winning last season's RaboDirect PRO12 Final and already the 2014 showpiece is highly anticipated.
On the field, Jhnny Sexton led the way last May as he kicked 14 points to lead Leinster to a 24-18 victory over fellow Irish province Ulster.
Ulster's talisman Ruan Pienaar kicked immaculately to register 18 points but tries in each half from back row duo Shane Jennings and Jamie Heaslip secured Schmidt a fitting send-off after three seasons in charge.
Both sides remain in contention for a place in the RaboDirect PRO12 play-offs this term, with the two matches scheduled for the weekend of May 16/17/18, while the RaboDirect PRO12 Final scheduled for May 31.
Whichever teams make it to the play-offs and the RaboDirectPRO12 Final it promises to be a feast of rugby so make sure you mark the date in your diary.
