**Young lock Ryan Baird enjoyed a magical night at the RDS with a hat-trick of tries that helped fire Leinster to a 13th straight Guinness PRO14 win.**\n\nLeo Cullen’s men looked in the mood from the off with early tries for Baird and Dave Kearney, and after Tommy Seymour struck for Glasgow Warriors seven more tries flowed for the hosts as they rolled on at the top of Conference A.\n\n# **Key Moments**\n\nThe Warriors approached this 2019 Final repeat with real positivity, naming a strong side in Dublin.\n\nBut right from the starter whistle Leinster looked all-powerful, with Baird forcing his way over from short range on four minutes.\n\nNext to get over was Dave Kearney, this one in space out wide as Glasgow were sucked in centrally before the ball was spun out to the wing.\n\nWarriors found their feet and scored an excellent first try on the angle through Seymour, before James Lowe got in on the act at the other end for Leinster.\n\nOminously for Glasgow the bonus point was secured before the break as Scott Fardy got over, although the Scots did register another superb try as Kyle Steyn blazed down the wing after the break.\n\nOn 52 minutes it was that man again Lowe, with Leinster weaving wonderful patterns to put the wing into space.\n\nMinutes later came the try of the night from second row Baird, who showed miraculous pace from 45 metres to sear through the middle of the pitch to the line.\n\nJust after the hour the youngster sealed his hat-trick, the good tries still flowing for Glasgow too as Alex Allan finished off an excellent move.\n\nThere was still time for Kearney to get his second and third tries in the final five minutes, capping off another excellent Leinster night.\n\n# **Player of the Match – Ryan Baird**\n\nWho else but Baird? At just 20 years of age! Kearney registered a hat-trick as well but it’s Baird who stole all the headlines with a fine all-round performance.\n\nThe lock worked hard, the highest amount of carries in his team with 13, with three lethal finishes that show he has a big future.\n\n# **Play of the Day**\n\nNo doubt about this one also, with Baird scoring a try that had everyone in the crowd scratching their heads.\n\nWhen was the last time a second row showed this kind of pace? You kept thinking a defender would reach the youngster - he had other ideas.
