Edinburgh 20 Leinster 33

Leinster bounced back from last week's defeat at Glasgow with a 33-20 win over Edinburgh in the Guinness PRO12.

Leinster failed to hit the same heights in the second half and Edinburgh pulled back thanks to scores from Hamish Watson and Magnus Bradbury.

But the visitors had the last word through a last-minute Leavy try, with Nacewa adding his fourth conversion on his 150th Leinster appearance.
