Guinness are set to be unveiled as the new sponsor of the PRO12, according to reports in both Scotland and Wales.
Both Wales Online and the Edinburgh Evening News claim Guinness will be imminently unveiled as the league's new title sponsor with the domain name guinnesspro12.com being registered to Celtic Rugby adding further fuel to the fire.
Turkish Airlines were also mentioned as potential sponsors but it seems Guinness will replace RaboDirect. Guinness were the naming partners for the English Premiership between 2005 and 2010 and have also sponsored Ireland's Test programme.
