An injury-tainted win.
Leinster breezed past Cardiff Blues last night thanks to a late surge in the second-half, that saw them grab three tries in less than ten minutes.
The Irish province were far from impressive, leading just 16-9 at the RDS, before Sean Cronin, Barry Daly and Nick McCarthy scored tries in the final 13 minutes to secure the bonus-point win.
The win however, was tainted by the fact that Ireland fullback Rob Kearney is set for another spell on the sidelines, after only recently making his comeback for the men in blue.
Kearney limped out of the action at half-time with a hamstring injury and head coach Leo Cullen afterwards admitted he’s unlikely to travel to South Africa for the back-to-back fixtures with new boys the Southern Kings and Cheetahs.
Leinster are already without a number of Irish internationals due to injury such as Jamie Heaslip, Robbie Henshaw & Garry Ringrose
