Leinster boss Leo Cullen was thrilled to see the squad's younger players step up for a big win over Bath in Dublin.

With nothing to play for in the competition Cullen rotated his starting XV to hand the prospects in Leinster's squad such as Ross Molony, James Tracy and Garry Ringrose a start.

Cullen wants to see a repeat performance against Wasps in the Round 6 game so that Leinster can finish their poor run in the Champions Cup on a high.

"We are delighted," Cullen told the EPC Rugby website.

"We put out a lot of young guys which was an opportunity afforded to us because we were out of the competition.

"But these guys have been working incredibly hard in training every week all season and it was great to see them produce the goods with a good performance on the pitch.

"It was great to see the youngsters coming through having invested so much in youth.

"So we are very happy with this result we're still gutted that we're not involved in the competition moving forward.

"Now we just have to focus on putting in a good performance against Wasps next week. Even if we're not in with a chance of progressing, we want to play a lot better than the home game against Wasps before Christmas."
