Leinster climbed up to third in the RaboDirect PRO12 table with a late 21-20 win over Treviso at Stadio Monigo.

Jimmy Gopperth kicked a penalty with five minutes remaining to hand the visitors the spoils on Sunday and make it five wins on the bounce in all competitions.

Tries from Lote Tuqiri and Noel Reid put the visitors in the driving seat early on.

But Treviso fought back, with a Ludovico Nitoglia score and the kicking of fly-half Matt Berquist.

It then looked as if Angelo Esposito's converted try on 61 minutes would hand the home side the win.

But Gopperth's decisive intervention ensured the points for Leinster, who now sit five points behind leaders Munster in third, while Treviso sit in tenth.
