Leinster have finished top of the PRO12 table and with that secured a home semi-final after they thumped Treviso 50-19 at the RDS on Saturday.

Head coach Leo Cullen firmly believes that his men should reward their loyal supporters with a win when they host Ulster on May 20.

The Irish Province have snatched the top spot in the PRO12 table from an in form Connacht side, based on a better winning rate.

Cullen expressed his satisfaction after his side's eight-try thrashing of a struggling Treviso side. 

"We started pretty well," Cullen added. "We showed some good intent even though the ball was quiet greasy.

"We created a couple of good chances off a couple of those drives it was quiet pleasing to be watching it."

But before they can look to the final at Murrayfield, Cullen's men will have to overcome a Ulster side, who will be full of confidence after they beat the RDS outfit 30-6 as recent as last week.

"We're pleased to finish where we have, but it doesn't actually count unless you maximise the advantage you
have," Cullen told reporters.

"It's fantastic for our own fans and the people who have stood by the team all year, that they get to watch us in the semi-final this year in the RDS.

"We'll regroup now and there's the awards dinner tonight and we can pay tribute to certain players who will be moving on.

"Then we can get ready for a huge game in the semi-final. Ulster are hitting some really good form so it will be a really big challenge."
