Controversy erupts as fans denied to bring flags to game

RETURN Leinster's Jonny Sexton comes back into the side for today's meeting with Bath

Pool one Progressing from the pot with a regenerated Toulouse side and the Heineken Champions Cup holders Leinster was always going to be hard, but Bath and Wasps are winless and now practically out of the tournament.

"We got some good drives, scoring that maul try and our scrum was pretty good too, but we let ourselves down a bit in the first half". They are saying that the flags failed a health and safety test.

These flags have been passed as safe by Airports and stadia all over the world.

"The flags were tested against three safety criteria and failed all three including fire".

NFL Minute: Can Raiders upset Steelers in Oakland?
The Steelers failed to force overtime against the Raiders in Oakland on Sunday. Quarterback Josh Dobbs took Roethlisberger's place to start the second half.

Bath responded on Twitter with a statement about the flags. "We have to take safety seriously, but we realise it's disappointing".

"We're really looking forward to the game and we know you'll bring the noise to the Rec today". "Safety for all supporters is paramount", the club wrote in response to a question about the decision.

Leinster fans had the last laugh and wore blue Santa hats as the Irish club all but extinguished Bath's Champions Cup dreams, defeating the homeside 17-10.

While Bath delivered a much-improved display against the defending champions, Todd Blackadder's side could only muster a losing bonus point thanks to James Wilson's late penalty, and the Premiership side now trail pool leaders Toulouse by seven points at the half-way stage.
