Leinster and Bath's Champions Cup quarter-final tie on Saturday was finely poised in the closing moments. The Irish side led 18-15 though the English Premiership team had possession within in the opposition 22. With the clock in the red, referee Jerome Garces awarded Leinster a penalty. It was a controversial decision with Bath coach Mike Ford being adamant a penalty should have been given to his team.
