Result: Leinster grind out Castres win

Leinster grind out a 21-16 win over Castres in Pool Two of the European Champions Cup thanks to an immaculate kicking display from Ian Madigan.

Ian Madigan kicked seven penalties to hand Leinster a 21-16 win over Castres and make it two wins out of two in the European Champions Cup for the Irish side.

After an early Saimone Taumoepeau try, Madigan struck three first-half penalties to make it 9-7 at the interval.

However, three penatlies from Geoffrey Palis put the home side seven points ahead before a flurry of Madigan kicks secured the win for Leinster.

The result leaves Leinster top of Pool Two ahead of Wasps' clash with Harlequins this afternoon.
