Connacht claimed their first ever Guinness PRO12 title after a 20-10 victory over Leinster in the Murrayfield final. The determination of Pat Lams men to attack paid off with first-half scores from Tiernan OHalloran and Niyi Adeolokun and they wrapped up victory when Matt Healy crossed after the break.Leinster were looking to claim their fifth crown but they could only muster a Jonny Sexton penalty and a late Sean Cronin try as they failed to rise to the occasion in front of a record final crowd of almost 35,000. Connacht booked their place in the play-offs by topping the league table but before kick-off few gave Irelands least successful province much hope against the Dublin powerhouse.While the Edinburgh face-off was Leinsters ninth appearance in the final, their Galway rivals were making their first appearance in the competitions showpiece climax. Connachts Tiernan OHalloran beats Rob Kearney of Leinster to score a try However, the only nerves on show came from the pre-match favourites, who fumbled their way through the first 40 minutes.Connachts underdogs by contrast were ice cool as they took just 13 minutes to carve out the opener.Centre Bundee Akis break did enough to disrupt the Blues defence before OHalloran turned Rob Kearney inside out as he sprinted home. AJ MacGinty nailed the conversion.With Ireland lock Devin Toner absent for Leinster following the unexpended death of his father on Friday, the last thing Blues coach Leo Cullen needed to see was Mick Kearney being forced off with concussion. Connachts Niyi Adeolokun beats Eoin Reddan of Leinster to score But Connacht were in no mood to show compassion and struck again after 22 minutes.Leinster could not cope with the speed with which the Galway men put the ball through their hands and were unzipped when Adeolokun found himself up against the flatfooted Luke Fitzgerald out wide. The Nigerian winger was by no means clean through but his chip-and-chase was perfectly executed as he darted home for the score.MacGinty pulled his attempt at the extras wide but made amends with a penalty soon after.The half-time break offered Leinster a chance to finally catch their breath and Sextons penalty three minutes into the second period was a welcome sight. Connachts Tiernan OHalloran beats Rob Kearney of Leinster to score a try However, the green waves continued to crash forward. Hooker Tom McCartney almost danced home for the unlikeliest of tries, only to be held up after Sextons last-gasp tackle.But that only delayed the inevitable, with Connachts third touchdown coming after 57 minutes when MacGinty saw the space in behind the ragged Leinster defence and measured his grubber kick with precision for Healy to run onto and dot down.MacGintys goal-kicking, though, was not quite as accurate as he smashed the conversion against the upright. Connachts John Muldoon with Leinsters Dave Kearney and Jamie Heaslip Leinster substitute wing Zane Kirchner thought he had given his side hope when he dived over in the corner but had his celebrations cut short by referee Nigel Owens after spotting Ben Teos forward pass in the build-up.The Dubliners finally grabbed a try when Cronin ran in with 12 minutes left but even then it came in controversial style as Owens refused to stop play despite seeing OHalloran knocked clean out following a brutal collision with Kirchner.Legs were tiring in the Connacht camp but the composure which served them so well in the early stages never wavered as they held out for their maiden PRO12 triumph.

The Australian goalkeeper gave up on the chance of a Premier League medal with Chelsea last January to join the relegation fight at the King Power stadium; after 27 games they were bottom, seven points from safety but a run of seven wins in their last nine games secured their improbable escape. Ahead of Tuesdays match with West Brom, the Foxes have over three times the number of points they had at this stage last season and are 12 points clear of fifth and Schwarzer acknowledges it is a glorious opportunity to cap a remarkable turnaround. He told Sky Sports News HQ: I think the pressure could not have been any greater on us (last season) being in the position we were, being written off. I think there is far more at stake staying in the league than actually winning it to a large degree, particularly for a club like Leicester. So I think that pressure was probably greater than what we are under now. What wee have to keep reminding ourselves is that it is an incredible opportunity and we have to try and make the most of the opportunity in front of us.dddddddddddd Claudio Ranieris approach has reaped dividends, according to Schwarzer Leicester have had the most settled first team in the Premier League this season. They have made just 22 changes to the starting XI, 14 fewer than any other club. Schwarzer added: Claudio Ranieri has tweaked little things, the training has changed a little bit, tactically we have changed a little bit, but the core of the side is the same as we finished last season.
