MUNSTER captain Peter O’Mahony said winning a first Guinness PRO12 title in four years this weekend would provide a ‘massive’ boost for the province.

Anthony Foley’s charges are odds-on favourites with the bookmakers to claim their first PRO12 title since 2011 and the province’s fourth ever success in the competition at Kingspan Stadium, Belfast, on Saturday, 6.30pm.

Captain O’Mahony said: “It is massive. I think we measure every year of how many trophies are in the cabinet as to how well the year went. The last few years haven’t been where we want. For us to put ourselves within position now to lift a trophy is exactly where we want to be and everyone in the squad will be doing their utmost this week to try and lift the trophy at the weekend.

“Glasgow are a quality side. I’ve been really impressed with them certainly this year. Over the last two or three years they’ve evolved into a really quality outfit and they have a lovely game plan as well with their offloading ability. The way the attack from counter attack and setpiece we’re certainly going to have our hands full. Over the last eight or nine months they’ve certainly been the best team in the competition but it’s down to a final now.”
