Despite just four sides remaining in the hunt for Guinness PRO14 glory, there was no shortage in the supply of quality scores in the penultimate weekend of the season.

Glasgow were the first side to book their spot in the Guinness PRO14 final at Celtic Park on May 25 with a thrilling 50-20 victory over Ulster, which saw 10 tries scored at Scotstoun on Friday night.

The Warriors will face Leinster in the fight for Guinness PRO14 glory, after the defending champions overcame Munster 24-9 to seal a spot in the final for the third time in the last four years.

Here are our top four tries of semi-final weekend.

Kyle Steyn for Glasgow Warriors v Ulster

Kyle Steyn capped a terrific performance with a silky second-half try after a deft chip from Adam Hastings caught Ulster off guard.

Stuart Hogg collected superbly before Steyn and Ryan Wilson exchanged passes to set the centre up for his second PRO14 try of the season ahead of the hour mark to firmly push the tie beyond Ulster’s reach.

Peter Horne for Glasgow Warriors v Ulster

With Glasgow in free flow, brothers George and Peter Horne came off the bench to add to Ulster’s misery and stretch the Scottish side’s score beyond the 40-point mark.

Following a lineout deep in Ulster territory, George cleverly improvised to chip over to his older brother, who saw a gap and left the defence for dead before going over for the Warriors’ sixth try of the night.

Michael Lowry for Ulster v Glasgow Warriors

Michael Lowry ensured Ulster’s fans did leave Scotland with something to shout about though, with a well-worked try in the corner with just seconds left of the 80 minutes.

David Shanahan produced a great pass to find Sean Reidy, who burst through the Glasgow defence before offloading to Lowry.

The 20-year-old showed some silky footwork as he danced around the opposition to claim a well-worked consolation try for Dan McFarland’s side.

James Lowe for Leinster v Munster

James Lowe ensured there was no Leinster hangover following defeat in the previous week’s Champions Cup final against Saracens as his last-gasp try cemented victory for the home side.

Munster dominated the first half as Leinster struggled to get going but after being sin-binned earlier in the game, New Zealand-born Lowe fended off the challenge of Chris Farrell to go over in the dying seconds at the RDS Arena.
