The provinces make very little as far as I'm aware, even for home quarter and semi finals. The IRFU takes their share and the ERC theres.

I know in terms of ticketing the ERC had full control of tickets for semi but I think Leinster had full control for the home quarter final.

But If Leinster went on to win on the 21st would there be a prize pot for them?

I think it is around 300,000 for the Amlin and 450,000 for the H Cup. Provinces will also get large bonuses from sponsors for winning.

The IRFU takes the full prize money from the HEC and amlin and the full TV money, as well as 50% of the provinces share of knockout gate receipts

A portion of TV money is distributed based on how far you get in the competition
