BAFFLED Bath boss Todd Blackadder reckoned Worcester Warriors should have been awarded a penalty try in the final throes of their Gallagher Premiership clash.

Duncan Weir converted Bryce Heem’s 97th minute try to clinch a 21-19 victory at Sixways and complete a remarkable comeback for Warriors who were 19-3 down at half-time.

Bath finished the match with just 11 men on the field after Ross Batty saw red on 64 minutes and Max Lahiff, Lucas Noguera and Aled Brew were all sin-binned in added time.

Blackadder said he felt Bath had been “penalised off the park” by referee Ian Tempest but thought Warriors had a case for a penalty try when Brew tackled Ryan Mills from an offside position.

“It will be fascinating to go back and have a look at it all and try to work out what happened there,” Blackadder said.

“(We went from) being 19-3 in front and in a commanding position to being penalised off the park and down to 11 men at the end.

“I can understand some of (the decisions) but some will be very interesting to go back and have a look at.

“A good example is Aled Brew’s yellow card. If he was yellow carded for being offside and it was cynical, it should have been a penalty try.”

Blackadder conceded that Bath’s penalty count went “flying through the roof” having been penalised 14 times in the second period.

“We deserved some of them, there is no doubt about that,” Blackadder said.

“But you just need some clarity and consistency.

“It was just penalty, penalty, penalty and we couldn’t get any flow.

“When we look at ourselves our attack was way too static in the second half. We just didn’t put enough pressure on Worcester with ball in hand.”
