Watch: Byrne Catches Stunning Sexton Kick To Seal Bonus Point For Leinster

Leinster turned it on against Bath at the Aviva tonight - fears that Storm Deirdre would see a repeat of the terse, haggard arm wrestle we saw at the Rec last week proved unfounded.

The champions were slick and ruthlessly effective in a 42-15 win, and even had the four-try bonus point wrapped up by half-time.

The fourth try was a thing of beauty - Johnny Sexton's cross-field kick (into storm-force winds!) was collected in the air by winger Adam Byrne, Horgan-at-Croker style.

Enjoy it below.

Adam Byrne Try

Leinster had earlier scored tries through Jack Conan, Rory O'Loughlin and James Lowe with Dan Leavy and Jamison Gibson-Park following suit in the second half....but Byrne's was the pick of the bunch.

Leinster have 15 points, but still trail Toulouse at the top of Pool 1 - the French side remain unbeaten after a 42-27 win against Wasps earlier today.
