Leinster and Racing put on a show with three incredible tries

A matchup between rugby giants Leinster and Racing always promises to provide great entertainment, and the encounter at The Aviva stadium today gave fans entrainment in its bucket loads.

Leinster are the team to stop in Europe at the moment, seemingly brushing aside any opponent that they face.

They proved this in the first 15 minutes, scoring a try that involved mesmerising hands and electric feet out wide for Jimmy O’Brien to score.

The French outfit hit back with a try of their own, and it was 7-5 to Leinster heading into the break.

Seven minutes into the second half, and it was time for Finn Russell to do Finn Russell things, the Scotsman cut straight through the Leinster defence, had time to point instructions at his teammates and then threw a perfect long distance pass to Christian Wade, who finished for a 5 pointer.

Throughout the rest of the second 40, Leinster began to impose their dominance, scoring a total of 5 tries in a 30 minute period.

The pick of the bunch involved a sublime offload for man of the moment Jimmy O’Brien.

Are Leinster the team to stop!?
