The Ospreys failed to pick up a bonus point in their win over the Newport Gwent Dragons at the Liberty Stadium on Thursday, with the result confirming Munster as the new Magners League champions with two rounds to go.
Having been at or near the top of the RaboDirect PRO12 table all season Munster overtook their nearest rivals Ospreys in early January and led from the front to claim their second Celtic title with games still in hand.
Playing in front of capacity crowds all year, the champions won 14 of their 18 matches during their campaign and were presented with the trophy at the newly refurbished Thomond Park Stadium in the final game against Ospreys on 15 May.
Runners-up Edinburgh's second place finish was the highest ever achieved by a Scottish team.
