Leinster beaten in Glasgow but close in on Connacht at the top
Leo Cullen’s side earned a losing bonus point on a forgettable night.

Glasgow 12 Leinster 6

LEINSTER MISSED OUT the chance to leapfrog Connacht at the top of the Pro12 table as they were beaten in Glasgow tonight.

Leo Cullen’s men do close the gap on their western neighbours however thanks to a losing bonus point.

Rory Clegg kicked a brace of penalties in each half for the hosts while Ica Nacewa attempted to keep the Irish side in touch with a pair of penalties of his own.

The game was error-strewn and lacking in any real inspiration throughout. The hard-fought win sees Glasgow’s hopes of a play-off place boosted and puts them ahead of rivals Edinburgh.
