Watch: Larmour Stars As Leinster Break Records In Massacre Of Glasgow
By Colman Stanley Updated

2 tries, 125 metres made, 7 defenders beaten, and 4 clean breaks, these were Jordan Larmour's stats for Leinster after their 76-14 demolition of the Glasgow Warriors in the quarter-finals of the URC, in the RDS this afternoon.

The fullback come wing continues his recent resurgent, following on from his starring performance last week when Leinster took down Munster at the Aviva.

Heading into today's game some predicted that Leinster may lack desire as a result of the hangover from last week's disappointment, others said that they would unleash their frustration on the Scottish side. It was comfortably the latter.

Leinster Comeback With A Vengeance

Leinster had the game tied up at the half, although the first 40 seemed subdued and disappointing compared to what was to come in the second.

Nonetheless, it was the away side who happened to open the scoring through Zander Fagerson, capitalising on a James Ryan penalty from kick-off, but everything was severely down hill from then on.

Dan Sheehan got Leinster back into the game with his side's first try, before Larmour and Joe McCarthy added further scores, and Sheehan grabbed a second. Ross Byrne also knocked over three conversions.

It was already looking very ominous for Glasgow with Dan Sheehan and Jordan Larmour both making yards with ease in open play.

The second-half began, and it soon became an embarrassment for Glasgow, as Leinster began to rack up tries, and looking for period as if they were scoring from kick-off each time. At one stage there were six tries scored in just over 20 minutes of play.

Larmour added a second to his tally in the 63rd minute, while Doris, Ala'alatoa, Gibson-Park, Ringross, Frawley, McGrath, and Jimmy O'Brien also got their names on the scoresheet.

A number of Leinster's tries were scored from deep line breaks with a support man finishing them off, as the Glasgow defence and will to chase back seemed non-existent.

In the end Leinster broke the record for the highest score and most amount of tries in a URC game, as they march into next week's semi-final against the Bulls.

Similar to yesterday's derby between Munster and Ulster, there were periphery Ireland players such as Joe McCarthy and Ciarán Frawley who put their hand up for inclusion on the plane to New Zealand, while the likes of Larmour will be looking to force himself back into the national 23.
