Brave Border Reivers narrowly missed pulling off their best ever Celtic League triumph at Netherdale.

Jamie Heaslip, Ronan McCormack, Will Green and Felipe Contepomi all touched down to give title-chasing Leinster a 27-19 half-time lead.

Borders battled back as Gregor Townsend and Nikki Walker added tries after the break to set up a tense finale.

But Contepomi's second penalty and try were enough for the Irish outfit to hold on and win by a single point.
