Five-point haul for dominant Leinster

Leinster's Dave Kearney celebrates scoring a try with James Lowe and Jordan Larmour

Leinster Rugby collected another bonus point success in Heineken Champions Cup Pool 1 as they comfortably defeated Lyon 42-14 at The RDS on Sunday afternoon.

The hosts dominated the early proceedings and scored a try after 10 minutes when Ross Byrne played a lovely cross-field kick to James Lowe who popped inside to Dave Kearney for the simple score.

Leinster were 16-0 up after 16 minutes when Josh van der Flier collected the offload from Luke McGrath and dotted down after the line-out set up another superb attacking platform.

The home side were briefly pegged back after attempting some neat passing but it was intercepted by No.8 Virgile Bruni and he sprinted clear to give Lyon a first try of the afternoon.

Dave Kearney then went over for his second of the day but Lyon responded yet again as Hendrik Roodt  burrowed a way over the try line, making it 21-14 at the interval.

Leinster dominated the second period with Heineken Man of the Match Max Deegan getting over on 53 minutes after the Irish province stretched the Lyon line that was a man light after Felix Lambey received a yellow card.

Sean Cronin and Andrew Porter also crossed the whitewash in the final 15 minutes to put further gloss on a commanding result that puts Leinster further clear in Pool 1 and in pole position for the No.1 seed. They travel to Benetton next week while Lyon will host Northampton.
