'Leinster were devastating'

Leinster 32-17 Wasps

Denis Hickie

Former Ireland winger on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Leinster were devastating in the first half. They were slick, put so many phases together. They weren't able to keep the pace and accuracy going in the second half but they built up enough of a cushion to leave Wasps struggling. 

Wasps had their moments but they will be disappointed. They didn't fire a shot.

Leinster 32-17 Wasps

Leinster full-back Joey Carberry, who has been named the man of the match, talking to BT Sport:  "At half-time we said we had to stick to our game plan and that's what we did. 

"During the week we knew how tough Wasps would be but we wanted to have a go at them and a few things went our way in the first half."

Full-time

Leinster 32-17 Wasps

All over! Leinster move into the Champions Cup semi-finals after a great all-round performance. Wasps didn't show up.

A trip to France awaits for the Irish side - either Clermont or Toulon will be their last-four opponents.

Leinster 32-17 Wasps

Leinster running down the clock now. Full-back Joey Carberry - arguably the man of the match - is given a breather, allowing the Aviva crowd to show their appreciation.

Leinster 32-17 Wasps

Well into the final five minutes. Leinster almost home and hosed.

McFadden try, Sexton con

That should do it!

Fergus McFadden goes over the line, capitalising on Devin Toner's big carry to scoop up and dive over. 

And that means Leinster are almost over the line.

Even the usually-cool Johnny Sexton fistpumps after slotting over the extras.

Leinster 25-17 Wasps

Leinster might as well have a groundsheet and a bag of pegs. They're setting up camp in the Wasps half. Wasps putting in a huge defensive effort and they're holding out. For now...

Leinster 25-17 Wasps

Into the final 10. Still teetering on the edge. The next score is vital.

Leinster 25-17 Wasps

Phew. A collective sigh of relief from the away side as they win a penalty from a scrum in their own five. Jimmy Gopperth smacks a kick into touch towards the halfway line.

Leinster 25-17 Wasps

Wasps are under the cosh again...

Leinster 25-17 Wasps

Garry Ringrose has stuck on his dancing shoes. His fancy footwork bring the Dublin crowd to life, as he cuts in from the right flank to skips through a flat-footed Wasps defence.

But Wasps scramble, Christian Wade reading the play to stop what surely would be a game-winning try.

Leinster 25-17 Wasps

Leinster go through the phases in the Wasps half, Robbie Henshaw carrying hard and straight in an attmept to punch a hole through the Wasps line.

Leinster play patiently, eventually going left. But communication between Garry Ringrose and Isa Nacewa breaks down and the former's pass dribbles into touch.

Leinster 25-17 Wasps

All gone a little quiet in the Aviva now...

Converted try - Leinster 25-17 Wasps

Gopperth try, Gopperth con

Is the comeback on?!

Quite possibly. Wasps claw back another seven points through a moment of magic from Jimmy Gopperth.

The Wasps centre goes direct after a quick sidestep, ploughing through the middle of the Leinster defence before spectacularly twisting over a challenge on the try-line to touch down.

A straight-forward kick puts Wasps within eight points.

Leinster 25-10 Wasps

More sloppiness from Wasps. The ball squirms out of a scrum in their own 22, putting Elliot Daly under pressure behind his own try-line. A hasty hoof with his size 10 gets his team out of bother.

Leinster 25-10 Wasps

Danny Cipriani's afternoon is over as Alapati Leiua is summoned. And it has not been a decent shift for the England hopeful to be brutally honest. He's been guilty of trying to overplay and carelessly losing possession.

Converted try - Leinster 25-10 Wasps

Christian Wade

Oh hello! Wasps have hope. Christian Wade sticks on the burners, kicking past a couple of Leinster defenders close to the right touchline, racing around them to score.

No shame in getting skinned by the Wasps winger. He'd give Usain Bolt a decent run.

Jimmy Gopperth steadies himself to accurately add the extras from the touchline.

Leinster 25-3 Wasps

Dai Young has seen enough. The Wasps boss makes a flurry of changes with fly-half Dan Robson one of the men hooked. He's not happy.

Penalty - Leinster 25-3 Wasps

Johnny Sexton

Wasps number eight Nathan Hughes is adjudged to have committed a boo-boo when the ball pops out of an away scrum. Referee Nigel Owens and his assistant have a good chinwag over the details before deciding to punish Hughes.

Johnny Sexton goes for the stick from a central position about 35 metres out. No mistake.

Leinster 22-3 Wasps

James Haskell is not afraid to say what he thinks. This time he is told to pipe down when he is penalised by Nigel Owens and questions the decision.

Leinster 22-3 Wasps

Not what anyone of a Leinster allegiance wants to see. Johnny Sexton appears to have a shoulder injury after being crunched by James Haskell.

Wasps would be pleased to see him disappear down the tunnel. He's made of stern stuff though. He's fine.

Leinster 22-3 Wasps

Leinster let Wasps off the hook. Richardt Strauss and Tadhg Furlong lead the Leinster charge in to the visiting 22 before Isa Nacewa kicks through.

Leinster 22-3 Wasps

Belting it down with rain in Dublin. Whether the greasy ball contributes to a truly awful passage of play from Wasps I'm not sure. Maybe it does, if we're being generous. 

Danny Ciprani tries to play his way out of bother, sending a hospital pass to Jimmy Gopperth, who tries to rectify the situation by shovelling the ball over to Christian Wade. He finds touch...

Kick-off

Leinster 22-3 Wasps

Johnny Sexton has his green gumshield in his left hand, white ball in the other. The Leinster fly-half gets us moving again.

Leinster 22-3 Wasps

The Wasps players are the first to re-emerge from the Aviva tunnel. They're all looking a bit sheepish. Presumably after getting a half-time rollicking.

'O'Brien impressing Lions staff'

Leinster 22-3 Wasps

James Burridge

BBC Radio 5 live sports extra commentator

Willie le Roux may have had a shocker but that first half was covered in blue. Wasps are playing far too loose and their England players look unrecognisable. 

Sean O'Brien putting in a serious and timely shift ahead of Lions announcement on 18 April. Andy Farrell, watching beneath us, must have taken note.

Leinster 22-3 Wasps

I'd love to see what's going on in the Wasps changing room right now. I reckon Dai Young has told Willie le Roux to stand in the naughty corner.

Leinster 22-3 Wasps

Denis Hickie

Former Ireland winger on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

When Willie le Roux crossed but did not touch down it was against the run of play. Kurtley Beale went right through the middle and left three Leinster defenders floundering.

We had looked away. It was only when we saw the replay then we realised what he had done. It was an anomaly.

Small Man Peaky: Wasps getting absolutely pumped here. No way they're coming back from this. le Roux is not going to be popular in Cov  

John McEnerney:  Plenty of match winners on both sides but the Lansdowne Road Roar will be what wins it for the home win just like The Slambusters

Denis Hickie

I'm very surprised at the gap between the two teams. Wasps came here with a lot of confidence but some of their players have been anonymous. There is a lack of cohesion.

Half-time

Leinster 22-3 Wasps

Leinster brilliant, Wasps woeful. The away team have not recovered from that Willie le Roux mistake at 8-0.

Converted try

Leinster 22-3 Wasps

Ooops! Any home fans who did sneak off a few seconds before the half-time whistle might be regretting it now.

Robbie Henshaw slides over for Leinster's third try of a splendid first half performance. The Wasps players have faces like they have just seen a giant spider in the shower.

Leinster 15-3 Wasps

Leinster are dictating everything. The home fans can nip downstairs for a pint without worrying about missing much. Half-time almost upon us.

Robbie Henshaw and Kurtley Beale

Leinster 15-3 Wasps

Can Wasps haul themselves back into this before the break? I wouldn't bet on it. They briefly threaten through Kurtley Beale, but Thomas Youngs' kick cannot be picked up by a team-mate and the chance goes begging.

Converted try - Leinster 15-3 Wasps

Conan try, Sexton con

Brutal from Leinster. Just as Wasps have a smidged of hope ahead of the break, the home side snatch it away.

Joey Carbery is the architect, cutting through the left side of the Wasps backline, then exchanging passes with Fergus McFadden.

Carbery sees Jack Conan on his shoulder - he does the rest by arcing around the Wasps defence to touch down behind the sticks.

Penalty - Leinster 8-3 Wasps

Jimmy Gopperth

No problem. Jimmy Gopperth - Wasps' kicking machine - slots over from distance. The visitors will be happy with this scoreline considering they have been well under the cosh.

Penalty

Leinster 8-0 Wasps

Another chance for Wasps to get their side of the scoreboard creaking into action. The visitors win a penalty, and Jimmy Gopperth is going for the sticks.

Leinster 8-0 Wasps

Boy, are Wasps pleased to hear Nigel Owens' whistle go in their favour. Luke McGrath looks to be clean through with Richardt Strauss on his shoulder - but he is hauled back by the eagle-eyed referee who spotted an infringement.

Leinster 8-0 Wasps

Another Leinster penalty after a high tackle on Joey Carbery. Johnny Sexton kicks into touch about 10m outside of the Wasps' 22 - more questions are going to be asked of the Wasps backline.
