Ospreys and Leinster can serve up magic

As Leinster and Ospreys gear up for the title decider - the Western Mail insists that there is no question this year has been the best Magners League season ever.

"We’ve had it all. It may have taken a while to get going, but since the new year there has been revitalisation and a steady increase in drama and excitement, which culminates in the eagerly-anticipated play-off final on Saturday.

"The Welsh regions have kept us guessing all year and by hook or by crook they will all be in the Heineken Cup next year. But the Ospreys want to win the title and on recent form it will take some effort to stop them. It was the Ospreys’ performance against Biarritz that transformed their season. Before that game in San Sebastian they were the same old Ospreys, a hugely frustrating side to watch.

"They had talent in spades, but even when they won they left you distinctly underwhelmed. Despite eventually losing to Biarritz the Ospreys put together their finest display for many seasons. The players found the freedom to express themselves in a way they had been unable to do all year."
