- Bath scheduled to play at Ashton Gate on 29 January
- Club’s training ground closed after outbreak at club
Bath’s derby against Bristol at Ashton Gate on 29 January is in doubt after their players and staff were sent home on Tuesday to isolate after a number of positive Covid-19 tests at the club.
Bath’s training ground, Farleigh House, is closed for a deep clean and another round of testing will be conducted on Thursday before the scheduled round next Monday. Bristol’s tests this week were all negative. Those who tested positive at Bath will have to isolate for at least 10 days, ruling them out of the Bristol match, along with their close contacts. Bath have already had two fixtures cancelled this season, against La Rochelle and London Irish, and their only victory came against Worcester.
