Paris - Defending champions Leinster got their Heineken Cup campaign back on track with a resounding 38-13 victory over Glasgow in a Pool 5 clash on Sunday.

The Irish province, who were held to a shock 16-16 draw by Montpellier in the first round of action last week, scored five tries to Glasgow's one.

Rob Kearney, Eoin O'Malley (2), Gordon D'Arcy and Isaac Boss all crossed the whitewash with international flyhalf Jonathan Sexton hitting a penalty and four conversions for the team that was also European champions in 2009.

The Scottish team, surprise 26-21 victors over Bath last weekend, scored a first-half try through Henry Pyrgos, playmaker Duncan Weir nailing two penalties and a conversion.

Montpellier play Bath in the day's late fixture.
