Leinster run riot in bruising clash
31 Oct 2014 22:10
Leinster 33-8 Edinburgh
-
Leinster made it four straight wins in all competitions with a bonus point success against injury-hit Edinburgh at the RDS.
-
Two tries from back rowers Dominic Ryan and Jack Conan had Leinster 12-0 up in as many minutes, with Tom Heathcote replying with a lone penalty before half-time.
-
Heathcote had a disappointing night with the boot, though, and man-of-the-match Ryan's 52nd-minute try coupled with a Ben Marshall score put Leinster clear before Tomas Leonardi and Mick McGrath swapped late tries.
-
The only sour point for the hosts was that centre Ben Te'o's debut only lasted 19 minutes as he picked up a hand injury, while Wallaby lock Kane Douglas was also forced off in the first half.
-
With crucial Champions Cup games on the horizon, the prospect of Leinster's major summer signings leaving the field early will be a major headache for Matt O'Connor.
