Watch: Nigel Owens Was Having None Of Parra's Attempt To Sneakily Steal Yards On A Penalty

Leinster endured a torrid start in Lyon against Clermont: they were 15-0 down after as many minutes: two tries either side of a Morgan Parra penalty, which carried the enduring damage of a yellow card to Isa Nacewa. Once Nacewa returned, Leinster steadied the ship somewhat, with the final five minutes of the half critical in keeping the tie alive at half-time.

Morgan Parra missed a very kickable penalty, minutes before Leinster finally went through a few phases and drew a penalty, which Sexton slotted. 18-0 instead read 15-3.

That Parra missed was unsurprising somewhat, given that he didn't really fancy it beforehand. He tried to sneakily steal a few yards toward the goal while he thought Nigel Owens wasn't watching, but his plans were foiled when the Welsh referee spotted it, and was having none of it.

Watch it below.
