Leinster were the form team before the pandemic saw the league suspended and the defending champions have continued that form since the restart. They reached the final after winning all 15 of their league matches and beating Munster in the semi-final.

They will face Ulster, who beat Edinburgh in dramatic fashion in the other semi-final, in the final at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday 12 September.

How to watch the Guinness Pro14 from outside your country

If you’re abroad, but still want to watch your local Pro14 coverage, you can do so by using a VPN – Virtual Private Network.

VPNs allow you to get around any geo-blocking by changing your IP address so you appear in a different location and can watch the same legal Pro14 live stream you would at home.

Our friends at TechRadar have tested hundreds of VPNs and recommend ExpressVPN, which is easy to use, has strong security features and allows you to watch on several devices at once, including smart TVs and phones, iPads, tablets, PCs and Macs.

Plus, ExpressVPN comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. You can try it out for a month for free – perfect timing to watch the end of the Pro14 season – or sign up for an annual plan and get three months free.

Guinness Pro14 live stream: How to watch from South Africa

SuperSport came on board as a Pro14 broadcast partner when South African franchises Cheetahs and Kings joined the competition in 2017.

They primarily show matches involving those teams but do broadcast others when schedules allow, which gives viewers the chance to check on the form of South Africans playing in the Pro14, like Munster’s World Cup winners Damian de Allende and RG Snyman.

There are various DStv packages available that give access to SuperSport, ranging from EasyView, with access to Blitz, to Premium, which includes all ten sports channels.

We recommend VPN services in the context of legal recreational uses. For example:

  1. Accessing a service from another country (subject to the terms and conditions of that service)
  2. Protecting your online security and strengthening your online privacy when abroad

We do not support or condone the illegal or malicious use of VPN services. Consuming pirated content that is paid-for is neither endorsed nor approved by Future Publishing.
