Bath Issue Celebration Ban While Burns Apologises After Nightmare Mistake

Bath Issue Celebration Ban While Burns Apologises After Nightmare Mistake
By Maurice Brosnan

Freddie Burns has publicly apologised to his team-mates and Bath supporters after a horrendous mistake proved costly during their Heineken Champions Cup clash against Toulouse.

With five minutes left, Burns squandered a glorious opportunity to score the game-winning try. The English man looked destined to touch down under the posts but celebrated earlier and was dispossessed by Maxime Medard. With the score at 20-22, the try would have proved vital.

 

Per the Telegraph, Bath have instructed all players they are never to celebrate a try early again. The incident was criticised by Ronan O'Gara who also praised the chase down.

He switched off for a fraction of a second, maybe in the Premiership you get away with that. (But) A little higher level, fair play to Medard for chasing him down. Great bit of perseverance out of him and he has won the game but as Shane (Jennings) said, it shouldn't happen.
