Connacht are the darlings of social media after their historical 20-10 win over Leinster in the Pro 12 final at Murrayfield.
There’s no point in denying it, you couldn’t find a single neutral that wasn’t rooting for Connacht to win their first ever piece of silverware against Leo Cullen’s men this afternoon.
Thanks to three fine tries and some exceptional effort, they did just that and Twitter is positively delighted for Pat Lam and co.
