The Twittersphere was left stunned by the Westenrers remarkable achievement
Connacht secured themselves a first ever Pro12 title in Murrayfield today, beating Leinster on a scoreline of 20-10.
The victory caps a remarkable season for the Westerners, as they have far exceeded their initial target of Champions Cup qualification and everybody else's expectation that they would eventually falter.
However, they proved unwavering in their climb to the summit, and there were plenty of plaudits to be found on social media.
Here are some of the best.
