Leinster 50 Dragons 15

Harry Byrne amassed a personal haul of 15 points at the RDS as Leinster cruised to a convincing bonus-point triumph over Dragons and keep up their unbeaten start in the Guinness Pro 14.

Leo Cullen’s side registered eight tries over the course of the action with wingers Dave Kearney and James Lowe both bagging braces for the rampant champions. This result means Leinster are still the only unbeaten side in the competition and have now opened up a five-point gap at the summit of the Conference A table.

In addition to Byrne and Ryan Baird – Grand Slam winners during the spring with the Ireland U20s – making their first starts, Jack Aungier was introduced off the bench for his Leinster debut.

After failing to cross the whitewash in last Saturday’s drab affair in Zebre, there was just nine minutes on the clock when Leinster pounced for the opening try of the night.

A regular starter this season in the absence of Tadhg Furlong and Andrew Porter, former Ireland international Michael Bent rounded off a lineout maul with a powerful close-range finish.

Byrne’s conversion drifted past the target and courtesy of some handling errors in possession, they briefly handed the initiative to Dean Ryan’s Dragons. The visitors manufactured a penalty and outhalf Sam Davies made no mistake with his first kick at goal.
