Leinster's Jamison Gibson-Park has likened Jordan Larmour's agility to that of a Jack in the box after the pair linked up for a try to help their side to a bonus-point victory over the Dragons in the Guinness Pro14.

Gibson-Park finished the game with two tries to his credit but his combination play with Larmour for a try was a particular highlight in an overall clinical performance at the RDS.

The scrum-half sent a kick down into the right-hand corner where Larmour outran Dragons' Josh Lewis and Hallam Amos to gather possesion and get the touchdown.

Larmour had to work for the score but Gibson-Park had full faith that his teammate could get the job done.

"He's like a jack in the box that boy," the man-of-the-match told RTÉ Sport after the 52-10 victory.

"You just give him a ball to chase and he's able to chase.

Jordan Larmour.

"We missed a good few chances in the first half but it was pleasing to put them a little bit more to the sword in the second half and create a good few opportunities. It was pleasing to come away with a good few points.

"It's a pretty tough start to the competition away to Cardiff and Scarlets, the two top teams in the competition so six points out of 10 is not too bad."

Also speaking to RTÉ Sport after the game, Leinster head coach Leo Cullen admitted that he looked on rather tentatively at Gibson-Park's kick attempt for that try but came to appreciate the genius of it when he saw the successful outcome.

"I wasn't really sure about that kick-through!" he laughs. 

"There was some nice interplay there. I was thinking 'oh don't kick it away' and then obviously he kicks it and he sees Jordan up the sideline - 'oh excellent choice.' It was an excellent result [from the move] and I thought Jamison was very good today.

"I thought he took his couple of opportunities well himself."

"We're pleased and we got a lot of guys up and running as well over the first few weeks of the season so it's nice to be back in the RDS and to get a win. It was a nice to get bonus point as well. They were pretty pleased and there were no major injuries, which is always good." 

Josh van der Flier crosses over for a try on his return for Leinster.

Cullen continued by remarking on Leinster's failure to convert possession into scores in the first half with Josh van der Flier igniting their challenge just before half-time with a try on his first appearance for Leinster since injuring his right knee last year.

"We had some chances and near misses in the first half. We held onto the ball for long periods, the ball was in play for a huge amount of time and we thought if we could keep hanging in there, some opportunities would come.

"More so in the second half, but to score at half-time is always nice as well. It's such an important part of the game just on half-time and the psychological lift it gives us all. The Dragons had a yellow card as well.

"We were able to continue that quite quickly at the start of the second half and picked off a few scores. We were able to get a couple of guys off the bench as well which is good."
