Leinster boss Leo Cullen is confident his side can go all the way and win the PRO12 competition after they reached the final on Friday.

The Irish province kept their PRO12 play-off record intact when they beat Ulster 30-18 in their semi-final at the RDS.

Tries from captain Isa Nacewa, Jamie Heaslip and a late second-half score from replacement hooker Sean Cronin helped Cullen's troops to a well deserved victory.

Cullen applauded the hard work that his men have been putting in both on and off the field during a very successful season.

"We are now where we are," Cullen told reporters.

"Guys acquitted themselves well over the last couple of weeks and they have been able to produce a performance of really good intensity."

The 38-year-old former Ireland lock believes that his players are ready to lift the PRO12 trophy for a fifth time.

"As a result, we were able to get a very positive outcome.

"There’s a lot of really ambitious players in the group that want to win trophies. We’ve one more game to go."
