Watch: Leinster Rescue Bonus Point In France With Late, Late Nacewa Try

Watch: Leinster Rescue Bonus Point In France With Late, Late Nacewa Try
By Gavin Cooney Updated

Leinster have escaped an absurdly wet Montpellier with a precious losing bonus point in their Champions Cup pool game.

Conditions were, er difficult amid a half-empty stadium and a pitch losing grass at a furious rate, and things were looking bleak when they had trailed their French opponents 22-9 in the dying minutes. Rob Kearney had a notably difficult day, spending ten minutes in the bin after being sent somewhere into next week by Nadolo for Montpellier's second try:

Leinster, to their credit, rallied late on. They began hammering the Montpellier line, and finally, just before the clock hit red, Isa Nacewa crossed the line. It was all about an outrageous pass by Jamison Gibson-Park, taking out three defenders to allow Nacewa canter over. Nacewa converted the try himself.

Watch below:

Huge result for Leinster, who began the game by paying tribute to Anthony Foley.
