It was mission accomplished for Leinster in their 54-13 win over Edinburgh at the RDS as they secured a home semi-final in the RaboDirect PRO12.

The runaway league leaders are guaranteed to finish in the top two now following their 16th win of the campaign, which was rubber-stamped by five second-half tries.

Shane Jennings' fortuitous early try was cancelled out by Nick De Luca's 11th-minute effort, before scores from Fergus McFadden and Sean Cronin saw Leinster break into an 18-7 interval lead. Fionn Carr's 43rd-minute try sealed the bonus point but Edinburgh leaked four more touchdowns as this clash of the Heineken Cup semi-finalists turned into a romp.
