Well, that escalated quickly.

Rassie Erasmus' Munster were blown out of the water by a slick Scarlets side that recorded their second victory in Dublin in just over a week having dispatched of Leinster in the semis.

The tone was set early on as Scarlets blitzed into 29-3 lead after just 30 minutes, and there was to be no comeback as the Welsh side kept their foot on the gas throughout. The final score was 22-46, with Irishman Tadhg Beirne even getting himself on the scoresheet.

It must still be said that Munster have had a fantastic season with some incredible moments along the way, but the manner of the defeat, with tries conceded to some very poor defending, left their supporters stunned.

All credit to Scarlets, the fact that both Leinster and Munster believe they played their worst games of the season in the semi-final and indeed the final, suggests that they forced them to do so, rather than it be a co-incidence.

They have had a fantastic turnaround after a poor start, and are fully deserved winners of the Pro 12 title.
