Bath out after Leinster defeat

Leinster delivered a performance worthy of Heineken Cup champions as Bath's faint hopes of progressing from Pool Three were finally ended with a 52-27 defeat at a packed Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

Ireland fly-half Jonathan Sexton finished with 20 points from a try, dropped goal and six conversions and Leinster's try scorers were Luke Fitzgerald (two) Rob Kearney, Eoin Reddan, Rhys Ruddock and Ian Madigan. Isa Nacewa also kicked a conversion.

Stephen Donald, Dave Attwood and Ben Williams grabbed late tries for Bath and Olly Barkley kicked three conversions and two penalties.
