Leinster clinched a home draw in the Heineken Cup quarter-finals courtesy of a three-try 25-3 triumph over Montpellier at the RDS.

In blustery conditions, Sean O'Brien's ninth-minute try settled any early nerves and man of the match Rob Kearney used his speed and strength to nab his fourth try of the pool stages.

Montpellier had no points to show for a long spell in the home 22, trailing 20-0 at the break with Fergus McFadden booting the rest of Leinster's points. Joe Schmidt's men went further ahead with a try from Cian Healy and, in a scrappy final half-hour, Martin Bustos Moyano kicked a penalty for the visitors.

The result completed an unbeaten run through the six rounds for the Pool Three winners, who are guaranteed to be one of the top seeds in the knockout phase.
