Jonathan Sexton added three penalties in the second half to become Leinster’s new all-time record points scorer.

Keith Earls scored two tries in the 2nd half on his return to action for Munster, the last of which came in the 79th minute.

The result means Leinster have won 9 of the last 10 meetings between the sides at the Aviva.

Sexton, who was named man of the match, hopes it’s a result that kick starts their season.
