Premiership club owner demands their Champions Cup match is replayed

Bath have reportedly written to the organisers of the Champions Cup demanding that their opening round defeat to Toulouse is replayed due to objections over the officiating.

Bath hosted the French giants at The Recreation Ground last Saturday in a match that saw the home side side blow the game in the closing moments after fullback Freddie Burns lost control of the ball over the line mid-celebration following a tackle from Maxime Medard.

However, according to The Times, Bath owner Bruce Craig is unhappy with how the game was refereed, chiefly that the match was brought to a close by Andrew Brace when the clock read 79.58 on TV screens at home

“I think the game should be replayed and we will do what we can to get equity,” Craig told The Times.
