Glasgow 33 - 25 Leinster

Tommy Seymour's second-half hat-trick blitz helped Glasgow to recover from seven-point first-half deficit to secure an impressive 33-25 win over Leinster at the Scotstoun Stadium during the Pro12 clash on Saturday.

The Scottish winger bagged a total of four tries (14, 52, 54, 72) with lock Tim Swinson (28) making a contribution to the hosts try tally.

Scrum-half Henry Pyrgos managed to convert three out of four tries.

Wing Leonardo Sarto's yellow in the 35th minute proved too costly for Gregor Townsend and his men as Irish flanker Josh van der Flier (36) and wing Zane Kirchner (40) crossed over for a try each.

Fullback Rob Kearney's (24) earlier try along with fly-half Joey Carbery's two conversions and a penalty allowed the visitors to take a decent seven-point lead.

However, Seymour's onslaught weathered out the Irish as they succumbed to a eight-point defeat.

The win has now positioned Glasgow second in the points table, while Leinster remain on sixth after tasting their first defeat of the season.
