Leinster 52

Zebre 0

A straightforward night for Leo Cullen's side at the RDS. Eight tries against perennial strugglers Zebre saw them cruise to a comfortable victory and better yet, they had eight different try scorers.

Cian Healy and Mike Ross started in the front row after being excluded from the Irish panel to face France this weekend.

Ulster 13
Glasgow Warriors 10

After a slow opening 40 minutes, Ulster found their groove in the second half to squeeze by Glasgow Warriors at Kingspan Stadium.

Les Kiss' side looked out of sight with five minutes remaining and an eight point advantage to their name, but Glasgow continued to knock on the door and conjured a last minute try.

Callum Black scored the decisive try with Ruan Pienaar and replacement Paddy Jackson adding eight points from the boot.
