  • Leinster 33-14 Scarlets

  • Late turnover for the Scarlets after good work from Davies - knock on from Samson Lee and that's the end. Leinster keep the dream alive but must repeat the result against Exeter next weekend. For now, job done.

  • TRY, LEINSTER, MADIGAN! 33-14 Reddan unhappy with the scrum - reset and Madigan nips in for the fifth try, hitting the conversion with a drop goal.

  • Leinster into the 22 - Heaslip slipping tackles. Dundon carries well, onto Van der Merwe, as Dundon goes again. Penalty to Leinster from right in front and they opt for the scrum.

  • Leinster attack from deep - starting right from the scrum before switching down the left with Fitzgerald again on the attack.

  • Sexton departs for Leinster, replaced by Ian Madigan. Couple of reset scrums and the Scarlets win the penalty, Michael Bent penalised.

  • Slight of hand from Leinster trying to open up the Scarlets - replacement hooker Dundon with a burst. Great hands from O'Driscoll - pass to Kearney goes to ground and Scarlets win the ball and clear.

  • Prod through from Nacewa is hunted by Heaslip but Jonathan Davies does enough with the boot to clear. Leinster lineout in the Scarlets 22.

  • Long kick from Kristian Phillips sets up a chase for the Scarlets, but the ball goes dead. Drop in tempo due to substitutions, but Leinster need more tries.

  • Good attacking play from the champions - Nacewa spinning out of a tackle down the right. Scrum to Leinster eight metres out.

  • Brian O'Driscoll enters the fray to a rapturous applause. Penalty to Leinster who find touch in the Scarlets 22.

  • Phil John penalised at the breakdown as Sexton aims for the corner. Changes for the Scarlets - ball goes forward at the lineout from Heaslip.

  • PENALTY, SCARLETS, THOMAS! 26-14 Scarlets win a penalty inside Leinster territory, Thomas aiming for the posts. No problem.

  • Storming half from Fitzgerald - stopped in his tracks though by a big hit from Timani.

  • Great width from Leinster finds Jennings out on the left wing - retaining possession, Kearney splits through a gap as Leinster look for try number five. Kick forward from Fitzgerald who then charges down the Scarlets clearance.

  • Samson Lee on for the Scarlets - Leinster keeping possession but good work from Timani at the breakdown wins the penalty for the Scarlets.

  • Fitzgerald on the switch offloads to Jennings who can't progress. Knocked on by Sexton in the tackle by Jonathan Davies - Leinster looking deadly.

  • Sexton receiving more treatment - tough afternoon for the Ireland and potential Lions fly-half. Clash of heads with team-mate Devin Toner as Leinster have the scrum in Scarlets territory.

  • Scarlets scrum inside the Leinster half, but the Welsh side knock-on and it will be Leinster's turn to feed the scrum. Infringement by the Scarlets hands Leinster a penalty on half-way.

  • TRY, LEINSTER, KEARNEY! 26-11 Solid scrum, Heaslip bursts and Kearney on the switch! Over Leinster go for the fourth try and that crucial bonus point.
