Leinster on a roll

Leinster made it two inter-provincial Magners League wins in quick succession as they followed up victory at Ulster with a bonus point 30-8 success against Connacht at the RDS.

David Kearney's first try of the season established an 8-3 half-time lead for the hosts, who overcame a poor start during which flanker Sean O'Brien was forced off with an injury.

But they were clinical after the break and second-half touchdowns from Kearney, Fergus McFadden and Niall Morris powered them to a victory which sees them close in on the top four in the table.

Connacht got precious little reward for a committed display, with Ian Keatley kicking a first-half penalty and Eoin Griffin collecting a late consolation try.
