Covid-19: Senior Rugby Department

Following Premiership Rugby’s decision to suspend the Gallagher Premiership and all secondary competitions for five weeks, we have also decided to remove all Bath Rugby fixtures from sale until the remainder of the 2019/20 season schedule is confirmed.

ARE THE PLAYERS STILL IN TRAINING? WILL WE HEAR FROM THE PLAYERS/ COACHES DURING THIS TIME?

We are working with the all players to ensure that they are able to train whilst fit and healthy to do so.

At the current time our Players are based away from the Club in accordance with guidance from Premiership Rugby, the RFU and the government.

We are in close contact and managing all of our playing and rugby staff with care and diligence and will continue to review the situation. We are working hard to ensure our players are prepared to look after themselves to the best of their capability as the situation continues to develop.

WILL WE HEAR FROM THE PLAYERS/ COACHES DURING THIS TIME?

It's hard for us to say, we will absolutely try but our first priority needs to be to ensure our players are able to train whilst they remain fit and healthy, whilst also ensuring we apply all guidance in the best way possible. Everyone remains committed to staying healthy and playing rugby again as soon as possible.

Our CEO Tarquin McDonald has this message for all our supporters: 

“As a Club we are committed to the safety of our supporters, our players and our staff. In light of this unprecedented situation a number of our fixtures will now be postponed.

“We are continuing to put measures in place to deal with ongoing developments and are in frequent dialogue with Premiership Rugby and our fellow Clubs. We will continue to monitor the situation with the UK Government, Public Health England and the NHS and respond accordingly.

“Our priority continues to be to protect public health and support in delaying the spread of COVID-19. We want to ensure our city, supporters, players and staff stay safe.

 “You will undoubtedly have concerns for yourselves, friends and families at this uncertain time, and we ask you all to put your health and that of others first, following the advice provided by NHS and Public Health England and continue to be vigilant to the ever-changing situation. In the meantime please be patient with us as we confirm further information from Premiership Rugby and will continue to keep you informed.”
