Bath captain Rhys Priestland told team-mates that celebrating before touching down was “not negotiable,” after Freddie Burns’ showboating cost the club victory against Toulouse.
“It is probably something we need to speak about as a squad – celebrating before we score tries,” said Priestland.
“As a squad, I just can’t believe we celebrate before we put the ball down.
“I honestly don’t know what boys think they are going to gain by doing it. For me that is not negotiable. We can’t do that again this season.”
