Leinster Rugby returned to the top of the Guinness PRO12 table with a 45-9 win over Scarlets at the RDS Arena on Saturday evening.

Two first half tries from Luke McGrath gave Leo Cullen’s men the lead at the break, with four tries in 10 second half minutes from Rhys Ruddock, Joey Carbery (2) and Ed Byrne making sure of the win.

Jamison Gibson-Park struck late from close range, with Ross Byrne’s sweetly-struck conversion from the right touchline (his fifth of the evening) bringing the game to a close.
