Madigan guides Leinster to victory

Ian Madigan pulled the strings for Leinster in the second half as they claimed a bonus-point 32-5 victory against the Scarlets in the RaboDirect Pro12.

Having missed out on a place in the Ireland squad for the RBS 6 Nations match against Scotland, Madigan looked eager to prove a point as a half-time replacement at the RDS.

He was involved in Leinster's most potent attacks as they scored 21 unanswered points after the break, with Madigan converting tries from Aaron Dundon, Jordi Murphy and John Cooney.

Andrew Goodman did all the scoring in the opening 40 minutes for Leinster, his try and two penalties guiding them to a 11-5 lead.

Andy Fenby swooped for a Scarlets try in the 35th minute but they were overrun by the in-form hosts with turnovers proving costly for the Welsh region.
