Leinster bounce back to form

Leinster rediscovered their try-scoring touch with a 33-14 bonus-point win over the Scarlets which keeps their Heineken Cup hopes alive.

First-half touchdowns from Cian Healy, Shane Jennings and man-of-the-match Luke Fitzgerald saw Leinster sweep into a 19-6 lead at the RDS. Scarlets full-back Liam Williams snuck in for a five-pointer before the break, only for his opposite number Rob Kearney to reply with the all-important bonus-point score.

Ian Madigan came off the bench to grab a fifth try in the final minute, as the Irish province's focus switches to that decisive clash in Devon where they need another bonus point victory.
