Leo Cullen says Leinster need to cut out errors despite thumping win over Glasgow

Leo Cullen warned that his Leinster side will need to cut out their errors in the knock-pout stages of the Champions Cup after booking a home quarter-final with a pool game to scare following a 55-19 thumping of feeble Glasgow.

"We're very focused on a six-day turnaround first. The quarter-finals are three months ago, we will have a lot of guys away with the Six Nations so we need to manage the group who remain here.

"It's a tricky period to manage. We just want to control what we can and get the best seeding we can manage.

"We started okay. The twenty minutes before half-time was really good. Glasgow were impressive at ruck but we knew there would be space elsewhere

"Our willingness to keep the ball alive was good though we got a bit loose in the second-half but we're happy to get a bonus-point.

"It's important to be winning games and maintain good habits, there a few areas we need to be better come the knock-out stages. Even against Montpellier, we can get punished for those errors.

"There are lots of areas that many of our players can improve upon which is always exciting for us.

"We've put extra emphasis on our forwards being comfortable on the ball, especially since Stuart Lancaster has come in, it is an added bonus. The forwards can manage the contact on their terms."

Man of the match Luke McGrath was delighted with his Leinster side's eight-try demolition at the RDS

We're delighted to get the win and the bonus-point, we were clinical in the first-half and the offloads were sticking. We were a bit loose in the second-half and let Glasgow into it.

"The forwards were brilliant, they laid the platform for us in scrum and maul. As backs, we're delighted with that set-piece dominance.

"We got caught out in the breakdown in the semi-finals last season against Clermont and Scarlets and so we have been working on that.

"All the forwards are happy with the ball in hand and it makes our play more exuberant."

Glasgow's Rob Harley was disappointed as the PRO 14 form side slumped again in Europe.

"This is a lesson. There are small margins at this level and Leinster put in a world-class performance and that is the challenge for us now to step it up a level."
