Here are the tries that gave Leinster victory over Glasgow in the Pro12 final

Two tries and two assists from Zane Kirchner made all the difference for Leinster.

THE POST-BRIAN O’DRISCOLL era started a little earlier than anyone in Leinster expected, but their attacking processes have held firm enough to create two tries in the first half of today’s Pro12 final at the RDS

And the Springbok made the most of another gap minutes before the end of the first half before Shane Jennings grounded Leinster’s second score.

Jimmy Gopperth tagged on two penalties as Leinster went from strength to strength in the second half. With the score 20 – 12, Kirchner struck again.

Two tries down and his second assist came moments later when he offloaded to Gordon D’Arcy, showing that he still has a few miles left in him even if his partner in crime has called time.
