“We will give the clubs any support they need and wish everyone affected a full and speedy recovery.

“Neither Premiership Rugby nor the club will be naming any of the players or staff involved and we’d ask everyone to respect their privacy.”

A Premiership Rugby panel will now be convened to determine the allocation of points from the fixture at the Brentford Community Stadium.

A statement from Bath said: “Following the cancellation of our Premiership Rugby Cup fixture against Exeter Chiefs earlier this week, we are sorry to share that our Gallagher Premiership game against London Irish on Monday 3rd of January at Brentford Community Stadium can no longer go ahead safely.
