Dan Parks: Last appearance in Glasgow?

Glasgow secured a convincing 30-6 win over an under-strength Leinster side on Friday that keeps them on course for the play-offs.

Three Glasgow tries came courtesy of Bernardo Stortoni and Rob Dewey (2), while Dan Parks kicked three conversions and three penalties on what could be his final appearance at Firhill.

Glasgow were looking to complete a clean sweep of the Irish sides at Firhill this season, while Leinster were seeking their first win in Glasgow since May 2006.

With a top-four finish already guaranteed and a Heineken Cup semi-final in eight days' time to prepare for, Leinster fielded a largely second-string XV, and inexperience cost the visitors with Rhys Ruddock, Trevor Hoggan, Dom Ryan and Mike Ross all spending time in the sin-bin.

The scorers:

For Glasgow:
Tries: Stortoni, Dewey 2
Cons: Parks 3
Pens: Parks 3

For Leinster:
Pens: McFadden 2
