SATURDAY will be a day to remember for Kildare’s Jimmy O’Brien as the flying winger scored four of Leinster’s 10 tries in a 64 – 7 rout of Bath at The Rec in Pool A of the Champions Cup.

O’Brien opened the scoring for Leinster from a Hugo Keenan pass and added his second and Leinster’s fourth from a Johnny Sexton grubber kick before half time.

The hat trick, and Leinster’s sixth came early in the second from a great cross field kick by Sexton and O’Brien’s final try and Leinster’s tenth came near the end as the Irish province gave Bath plenty to think about in a day they will want to forget but a day that Jimmy O’Brien will remember for a long time.
