Leinster 38-13 Glasgow Warriors    

Leinster showed glimpses of their ruthless best as they dealt Glasgow Warriors an emphatic 38-13 Heineken Cup defeat at the Royal Dublin Showground .

Cruising to their first Pool Three win, the defending champions notched two tries while Devin Toner was in the sin-bin, with Eoin O'Malley, Brian O'Driscoll's deputy in the number 13 jersey, scoring both.

Rob Kearney and Gordon D'Arcy (pictured) also touched down as the bonus point was secured by the 40th minute, the Warriors' cause not being helped by a high error count. Glasgow gained some consolation with a late try from replacement scrum half Henry Pyrgos, but Isaac Boss had the final say for Leinster in injury-time.

Bath Rugby 16-13 Montpellier          

World Cup winner Stephen Donald took centre-stage for Bath as they put their European campaign back on track with a tense 16-13 Heineken Cup victory over dangerous French opposition.

The New Zealander, whose penalty secured World Cup final glory for the All Blacks against France in Auckland last month, marked his home debut in style. Donald created Bath's opening try and then almost scored the second following a lengthy interception sprint, while he also slotted two penalties to get his team up and running in Pool Three.

The hosts took charge early on, with wing Olly Woodburn and prop David Flatman scoring tries, before Montpellier hit back through the efforts of wing Martin Bustos Moyano, who converted his own try and kicked two penalties.
