Kearney has not featured for Leinster since October due to an ankle injury but he was back with a bang on Sunday as Treviso were swept aside.
Leinster ran in three tries in the opening 40 minutes, Kearney’s brace coming after Rory O’Loughlin’s opener in the early exchanges.
Kearney’s tries came after neat hands from the backs, the winger able to find gaps and penetrate the vulnerable Treviso line.
Adam Byrne, Joey Carberry and Bryan Byrne all went over in the second-half, while Leinster’s points were boosted by the accurate kicking of Ross Byrne.

There had been little to choose between the two sides for much of the encounter, but a late burst from the visitors proved enough to secure victory.
