Reigning champions Leinster

Reigning champions Leinster

Reigning champions Leinster, will be looking for their first win of their title defence when they host fellow Pro12 side Glasgow Warriors at the RDS in Dublin on Sunday.

The Irish province returned home after a fierce physical examination in France by new boys Montpellier with a 16-16 draw thanks to a last ditch penalty by fly-half Jonathan Sexton.

The two-times champions, who lifted the trophy in 2009 and last season, will be wary of a Glasgow side who travel across the Irish sea having pulled off a last minute victory of their own.

The Scottish side are now top of Pool 3 after Scottish lock Richie Gray scored a try with the last move of the match to stun Bath with a 26-21 victory at Firhill last weekend.

But Glasgow will have their work cut out against a Leinster side which has an impressive record at home in Europe, having lost only once in their last 19 games in European competition in the Irish capital.

The Warriors, though, don’t have a great record on the road and have lost their four Heineken Cup games away from home.

A clinical first forty minutes from Heineken Cup Champions Leinster saw the Irish Province cruise to a 38 v 13 victory over Glasgow Warriors at the RDS.

The hosts were irresistible in the first period, running in four tries and wrapping up the bonus-point before the break.  Glasgow, on the back of their opening victory against Bath last weekend came out fighting in the second half but it wasn’t quite enough.

Rookie centre Eion O’Malley, playing only his fourth game of Heineken Cup rugby, stepped up to the mark in the midfield scoring two first half tries.

Duncan Weir kicked the visitors ahead with a 1st minute penalty but Leinster soon struck with Ireland full-back Rob Kearney diving over in the corner after good work from Isa Nacewa.

Weir kicked his second penalty but the response was the same from Leinster with O’Malley touching down on this occasion and again the conversion was spot on from Johnny Sexton.

O’Mally then scored his second after lovely hands in the backline and the fourth was scored just before the break with Gordon D’Arcy touching down to record the bonus point.

The Scots stemmed the tide in the second half and managed a try by replacement scrum half Henry Pyrgot and the hosts replied with a try by Issac Boss but the job had been done before half-time.
