Rory O'Loughlin scored a try in each half to make it four tries in as many games as Leinster cruised home to a comfortable 22-7 win over Ulster in a Pro12 derby at the RDS Arena.

Ulster fullback Charles Piutau's 76th minute try which was immediately converted by fly-half Ruan Pienaar saved face from going scoreless for the visitors as well as saved the bonus-point for his side.

Luke McGrath was the other try scorer for Leinster as the scrum-half's 32nd minute try gave the hosts a 10-point lead at the end of the first-half.

Fullback Isa Nacewa scored a penalty and managed to convert two out of three ties.

Leinster will host Zebre at RDS while Ulster will face the Scarlets at Scarlets Park on coming Friday.
