Leinster cruise past Zebre

Man-of-the-match Fergus McFadden scored two of Leinster's five tries as they earned a 37-7 bonus-point victory in their first meeting with Zebre in the RaboDirect PRO12.

Andrew Conway and Jonathan Sexton touched down in the first half at the RDS, McFadden's brace followed after the break and Cian Healy also crossed after coming off the bench.

The Italians threatened at various intervals through wingers Leonardo Sarto and Sinoti Sinoti, and got a deserved try in the 48th minute from scrum-half Tito Tebaldi.
