Leinster take convincing win over Ealing


Leinster cemented their place at the top of Pool 1 with a 45-13 victory over Ealing Trailfinde­rs at Donnybrook last night.

It took them time to wear down their English visitors, as their scrumhalf Alex Davies shared penalties with Cathal Marsh for six-all.

The breakthrou­gh came close to the break from Peter Dooley’s hard line onto the ball from close range.

They took off from there. Flanker Josh Murphy claimed a try. Then Darragh Fanning found his way to the scoreline. Collie O’Shea went through for the bonus-point fourth. He got his second soon after before Cian Kelleher scored.

Ealing did come up for air for Chris York to strike. But, Royce Burke-Flynn picked up the final try late on.
