Leinster too strong for Edinburgh

Leinster stepped up their bid for a RaboDirect PRO12 play-off spot with an impressive 31-16 bonus point victory over a battling, but disjointed, Edinburgh side at Murrayfield.

The European champions had a penalty try as well as touchdowns from Gordon D'Arcy, Jonny Sexton and Ian Madigan, plus 11 points from Sexton's reliable boot.

The hosts, for whom this was a fourth successive defeat in all competitions, had two penalties by Greig Laidlaw and a drop goal from Piers Francis, who added the conversion of a late try for prop Willem Nel.
