SPORT: GUINNESS LIKELY TO BECOME NEW PRO 12 SPONSOR
Guinness has emerged as the most likely candidate to become the new title sponsor of the Pro-12.
The new-look tournament is set to announce their new sponsor on Thursday, with the Irish drinks manufacturer reported to have won the battle to replace Dutch bank, RaboDirect.
Turkish Airlines and Heineken had also been linked with the sponsorship opportunity.
The competition, which features teams from Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Italy, is also set to begin a new four-year broadcast deal with Sky Sports.
