Despite defeat at the hands of Glasgow Warriors on Friday night, Leinster remain at the top of the Magners League Table but the chasing pack are closing, with Llanelli Scarlets moving into third place after a 50-12 win over Border Reivers at Stradey Park.
The Heineken Cup semi-finalists were in total control right from the start, securing the four-try bonus point after 30 minutes and finally running in nine tries.
However, there was joy for the other Scottish sides. Glasgow secured a 26-20 win over Leinster, thanks to tries from Hefin O'Hare, Rory Lamont and Thom Evans. A late penalty for Felipe Contepomi, after Gordon D'Arcy had earlier scored two tries, secured the bonus point for the leaders.
Edinburgh also scored a home win, defeating Newport Gwent Dragons 30-20 with a four-try maximum point performance which keeps them well ahead of Glasgow as the top ranked Scottish side in the league.
