Adam Byrne managed a hat-trick of tries for Leinster as the province emerged victorious from their Guinness Pro12 encounter against Zebre.

Leo Cullen's side were 33-10 winners in Italy with Byrne's three tries and other tries from Tom Daly and Jack Conan secured a bonus point triumph.

Zebre had taken an early lead after Dries van Schalkwyk's try and Carlo Canna's conversion on 18 minutes.

But Daly's 23rd minute try set up a turnaround on the scoreboard as Leinster raced clear to victory.

The result leaves Leinster top of the Pro 12 table after eight rounds of action.
