With the Magners League Grand Final now just days away, you the fans have given your verdict on will be crowned Celtic Kings.

Here at, we asked you which of the four semi-finalists would be picking up top honours on May 29 and you gave us a resounding verdict.

A massive 62.5 per cent of you are convinced that Leinster will regain the title they won two years ago, and that was before Michael Cheika’s men had seen off reigning champions Munster last weekend.

Of the 1,778 supporters who took part in our online poll, 1,112 of you voted for the top seeds as your inaugural Grand Final winners.

Next in line were Leinster’s final opponents the Ospreys. The 2005 and 2007 Magners League champs finished second in the regular season standings and went on to beat Glasgow Warriors in the first semi-final just after our poll had closed.

Ryan Jones and co received 22.8 per cent of the vote, with 406 of you giving the Ospreys your backing.

And with one game still left to play, less than 15 per cent of those of you who took part can kiss goodbye to your chances of success.

Only eight per cent of you felt Munster would retain their crown, while 6.6 per cent of you believed that Glasgow Warriors would be the first Scottish side to become Magners League Champions.

As for those of you who voted for Leinster or the Ospreys, you’ll just have to wait until Saturday, May 29 to see if your prediction comes true
