Updated: May 20, 2012

Leinster racked up the records by thrashing Ulster 42-14 at Twickenham on Saturday to win the Heineken Cup for the third time in four years as the first all-Irish final turned into a celebration for Europe’s most dominant side.

Their five tries was a final record and the victory was the highest score and biggest winning margin in the competition’s 17-year history.

Leinster’s victory made them the first team to go through a Heineken Cup campaign unbeaten and with three titles they move second behind Toulouse (four) in the roll of honour of Europe’s elite club competition.
