Leinster v Glasgow Warriors

BBC ALBA/BBC TWO SCOTLAND - Disathairne 31 Cèitean aig 6.00f


BBC ALBA and BBC TWO Scotland will screen live coverage of the showpiece RaboDirect PRO12 final between Leinster and Glasgow Warriors.

Coverage will start on Saturday at 6.00pm, with the match itself beginning at 6.15pm. The programme will be presented by Calum Macaulay with commentary from Hugh Dan MacLennan and analysis from former Scotland and Lions international John Beattie.

The clash will see reigning champions Leinster – who finished top of the standings during the regular season – host Glasgow Warriors who were second in the campaign and are making their inaugural appearance in a PRO12 final.

Warriors held off a late comeback from Munster at Scotstoun to book their place in the final, securing victory by the narrowest of margins in a 16-15 win but Gregor Townsend’s side will face a Leinster outfit that also had to battle hard in their semi-final tie, eventually overcoming Ulster 13-9 at the RDS.

It has been one win apiece in the clubs’ meeting so far this season, with tries from Chris Fusaro and Jerry Yanuyanutawa, plus a Stuart Hogg conversion, helping Glasgow to a 12-6 home win in September.

Their most recent encounter was a higher scoring affair at the RDS in March when, despite Glasgow tries from Nikola Matawalu and Richie Vernon plus points from the boot of Finn Russell, the Irish province recorded a tight 28-25 victory.

As well as the PRO12 title and trophy at stake, the occasion will also be an emotional one as Glasgow bid farewell to a number of players including Chris Cusiter and Ruaridh Jackson, whilst Saturday will also mark the swansong for Irish rugby legend Brian O’Driscoll.

In addition to the action on the pitch there will be an extended interview with Warriors coach Gregor Townsend as he reflects on the afterglow of the magnificent win over Munster that took Glasgow Warriors to the final, whilst stressing that he is taking his team there to win not just to take part. Gregor also speaks about the difficulties he faces in selecting his squad understanding that there will be disappointed players in the mix. He also reflects on his role as a coach and asserts that despite making it to the PRO12 final he is still very much learning his trade.

Scottish Rugby’s Director of Commercial Operations, Communications and Public Affairs Dominic McKay said: “BBC ALBA have screened the majority of Glasgow’s games this season on their way to the final and are big supporters of Scottish rugby. It’s fantastic that even more people will get to watch the final on Saturday evening and we’d like to thank BBC ALBA and BBC Scotland for showing the game live.”

Glasgow Warriors managing director Nathan Bombrys added: “It's great news for our supporters that the final will be on both channels. With the game also being shown live in Merchant Square, it means supporters can watch the game together in the centre of Glasgow, while fans travelling to Dublin will be able to enjoy our pre-match Fan Zone close to the stadium.”

Alan Esslemont, head of content for BBC ALBA, said: “We are delighted to be bringing viewers a fantastic live package from Saturday’s PRO12 final as Glasgow travel to Dublin to take on Leinster. BBC ALBA’s coverage this season has been very well received and we are looking forward to Saturday’s game with much anticipation for Glasgow. It will be the exact same programme output from BBC ALBA that will be screened live on BBC Two, allowing a greater fan base to enjoy our production and the live action as it happens.”

BBC ALBA has an exclusive deal to show live RaboDirect PRO12 rugby in Scotland until the end of the 2013/2014 season. The channel is committed to showing at least eight Edinburgh or Glasgow home matches per season, and has teamed up with Irish and Welsh broadcasters to also provide live coverage of selected away matches for both sides.
