Leinster forward Cian Healy struck a satisfied note after helping his side to a 36-3 Heineken Cup win over Ospreys.

The five-try victory over their RaboDirect PRO12 rivals was good enough to secure the three-time former champions a place in the last eight, Healy himself scoring the second try of the night.

The Ireland international told Sky Sports "It was pretty good, we had to stick to our guns. It was a slow game, trying to piece things together was tough enough but we stuck to what Matty (coach Matt O'Connor) told us and pulled it off nicely at the end."

Leinster have been far from their fluent best in recent weeks but that is of no concern to Healy - indeed he is hoping it will help them to play their best rugby at the business end of the season.

He added: "We are plugging way, working on getting what we want. It has happened to us in seasons before where we are going away and winning and not playing our best rugby.

"But then it takes time for that to click and we don't really want that clicking at the start of the season, we want to work on it and it comes right at the right time of the season."

Leinster will in all likelihood miss out on a home quarter-final but Healy is not concerned by the prospect of having to win on the road.

He said: "We believe in what we can do. Obviously it would be great to be in Dublin with the home support and all, but we will go anywhere and play anywhere."
