URC: Glasgow go top with win over Munster as Leinster down Ulster

Glasgow made it five wins from six to go top of the United Rugby Championship table with a 33-20 bonus-point win over Ulster.

Ulster raced into a commanding lead after just 11 minutes but the Warriors responded with five tries to secure a bonus-point victory at Scotstoun.

World Cup winner Steven Kitshoff came on for his Ulster debut 10 minutes into the second half, but could not prevent the Irish outfit from going down in defeat.

Elsewhere, Leinster claimed the derby spoils as they came from 10-0 behind to overcome arch-rivals Munster 21-16 at the Aviva Stadium.

50,000 fans watched on as Graham Rowntree's men opened the match impressively thanks to Craig Casey's score and Jack Crowley's penalty.

The hosts responded, however, and were 14-10 ahead by the interval following tries from Jamison Gibson-Park and Dan Sheehan.

It was a lead they would not relinquish in the second period, although Munster made sure that they would have to work for the win.

Two further three-pointers from Crowley kept the visitors in the contest until the end, but Jordan Larmour's well-taken try meant that Leinster secured their fifth URC victory of the season.
