WATCH: Devin Toner Stands Protectively Over An Injured Andrew Conway As Play Continues

The Leinster machine rolls on to the PRO 14 final but there's no denying that Munster will be kicking themselves this morning as they left points out on the field at the Aviva Stadium.

The fact though is that Leo Cullen's men edged out their provincial rivals by 13-3 to secure their ninth final appearance in the last 11 seasons.

However, with the score at 10-3, JJ Hanrahan will rue missing a pair of penalties to get his side within touching distance.

Leinster capitalised on these misses and seized a chance of their own, as Johnny Sexton nailed his kick to push their lead out to 10 points.

Still, Munster came at them and were much the better team in the closing 10 minutes. However, Leinster held firm as Munster were unable to break down their stubborn defence over the final 15 minutes.

During the game, one moment of sportsmanship resonated with viewers and it happened when Devin Toner stood over the injured Andrew Conway to protect him from the play falling on top of him.

After Robbie Henshaw carried the ball into contact with Conway, the Munster winger came out the worse of the challenge and required medical assistance.

As the play is recycled, Toner spots Conway on the ground and shields him from any further possible injuries.

A lovely act of sportsmanship that didn't go unnoticed by viewers.
