Leinster 42-15 Bath Rugby, Aviva Stadium

Leinster came up with a six-try performance to trounce Bath Rugby 22-15 in their European Rugby Champions Cup clash at Aviva Stadium on Saturday.

Leinster continue to remain at second place with 15 points in Pool 1 behind Toulouse while Bath Rugby have managed just five points from four games.

The visitors got their first points on the board in just the third minute when Francois Louw kicked a penalty goal following good work from Francois Louw but Leinster hit back with back to back tries from Jack Conan and Rory O'Loughlin in the 7th and 12th minutes respectively with Johnny Sexton kicking both the conversions.

Louw helped Bath bounce back when he dotted down in the 19th minute but it was Leinster, who dominated the first half as they went on to claim their try bonus point with further touchdowns from James Lowe (26') and Adam Bryne (38') as they headed into the break with a 28-10 lead.

There was no respite whatsoever for Todd Blackadder's men as with further tries from Dan Leavy (45') and Jamison Gibson-Park (68') on either side of a Sam Underhill (52') touchdown to complete the 27 point victory. Johnny Sexton also kicked his all five conversions before making way for Ross Byrne at the end of the third quarter.
