Leinster see off Brive in Pool Six

Leinster see off Brive in Pool Six

Leinster overcame a resolute Brive side 27-10 at the RDS in the pool six Heineken Cup meeting on the weekend, picking up a last-minute bonus point try in the process.

The home side were made to work hard for the win as the lack of game-time over the festive period, along with two Magners League games being postponed, perhaps showed.

Despite the rustiness though, they still managed to produce some great tries, most notably the bonus-point effort by Brian ODriscoll that featured a stunning flick offload by Shane Horgan.

Back from injury, Jonathan Sexton kicked a penalty and two conversions, the first coming after a penalty try. Isa Nacewa and Gordon DArcy scored the other two tries, with Nacewas in particular featuring some classy handling.

Brive were determined and show enough spirit to score twice through Retief Uys and Scott Spedding.

Leinster are now five points clear in their group and will meet second placed London Irish at Twickenham in the next round, a match that will determine the winner of the group.
