Leinster once again showed their class yesterday as they scored seven tries on their way to a 39-7 victory over the Scarlets in Round 4 of the Heineken Cup at the RDS.
Three unanswered tries in the first half got them on their way before they secured the bonus point early in the second with a fourth. Rob Kearney, Gordon D'Arcy and Brian O'Driscoll picked up two tries each, with Shane Horgan scoring a nice intercept try.
Coach Michael Cheika praised his side for taking their chances with some excellent finishing.
"I think that we probably took the chances that appeared to us and it made it a bit easier than I thought it would be, because the Scarlets are a pretty dangerous team when they get going."
"We made a few elementary errors early on, gave them some opportunities and we were lucky they didn't take them and then we were able to get our shape together."
Rob Kearney showed that he is human after all as he made more errors than weve seen from him all year (roughly two), namely when he allowed the ball to bounce with let Rhys Priestland run in for Scarlets only try of the non-contest.
Leinster and London Irish now top Pool 6, both with 15 points each.
