BATH RUGBY PRESS RELEASE
BATH, ENGLAND – Today we share the disappointing news that our Boxing Day, Gallagher Premiership Rugby match against London Irish has been cancelled.
 
London Irish returned a small number of positive tests in this week’s round of PCR testing, but had further players who presented with symptoms yesterday.
Stuart Hooper, Bath Rugby, Rugby-Wrap-UpDue to the impact of this and in accordance with Premiership Rugby and Public Health England, London Irish are unable to safely fulfill a Premiership standard matchday-23 and the game cannot therefore go ahead.
Bath Rugby can confirm that in line with all 2020-21 league regulations the Club is able to safely field a matchday-23 this week. A Premiership Rugby panel will now be convened to determine the allocation of points and a further announcement will be made in due course.

Commenting on the news, Stuart Hooper said: “We stand by all Premiership Clubs today and while we are disappointed with this news, the health and safety of everyone in our sport must be our top priority. I know this news will be hard felt by our supporters who were due to attend and, but I know you’ll understand and join me in wishing all those affected this week a full and safe recovery.”

This news follows Leicester Tigers game against Newcastle Falcons being cancelled yesterday.
