In the driving seat.
Leinster secured a comfortable 34-18 victory over Glasgow Warriors in European Champions Cup action at Scotstoun Stadium this afternoon, securing a second consecutive bonus-point win.
Tries from captain Johnny Sexton, Noel Reid and a Cian Healy brace proved too much for the Scottish side who scored through the returning Stuart Hogg and Tommy Seymour.
Glasgow grabbed the first try of the game thanks to some excellent finishing from Hogg. But Leinster were always in control, going in leading 17-10 at the interval, despite playing against the wind.
Some wonderful interplay from Sexton and Fardy set up Leinster’s third, before Glasgow made one last fightback with a Seymour try. It wasn’t to be for the Warriors however, as an excellent individual effort from Reid secured a massive bonus-point win.
