Leinster started strong with replacement out-half Matt Leek storming over in the right corner, after only 3 minutes of play. Brian O'Meara missed the conversion, but by all accounts a great start for Leinster.
Cardiff hit back on 11 minutes when Shane Horgan conceded a penalty, which Nicky Robinson converted from under the posts, before O'Meara responded with two penalties for the hosts, following losses of possession by Cardiff.
O'Meara kicked another 2 penalties for Leinster on the 25th and 30th minute
Both sides had chances in the second half but could not produce any scores. The only score of the second half came from Leinster's Brian O'Meara who kicked a penalty on the 80th minute to give the Lions a 20-17 win.
