Bath's comeback leaves Gloucester floundering in the silence
Bath 31-24 GloucesterBath score four tries in final 20 minutesVery little in rugby feels entirely permanent right now and here was another prime example. Entering the final quarter Gloucester were 20-3 ahead and close to putting a serious boot into Bath’s Premiership play‑off ambitions. Less than 20 minutes later and four tries later the hosts were looking at a completely different scenario, having engineered the kind of escape of which even Harry Houdini would have been proud.Until their spectacular late flourish there had been precious little sign of a pulse in Bath’s title challenge but the ledger will show two tries from the hooker Tom Dunn, another close‑range effort from the replacement prop Lewis Boyce and a late bonus courtesy of Ben Spencer have breathed fresh life into their prospects. Victory in their final regular‑season game at Saracens will mean they would finish in the last four. Continue reading...

Sport by sport: what new lockdown regulations will mean in UK
An extended period without spectators will leave many sports clubs and governing bodies facing an uncertain futureRugby union remains among the most vulnerable major sports if the pandemic continues to prevent spectators from attending major games. The Rugby Football Union, which largely funds the English game, derives 85% of its income from sold-out Twickenham internationals and its chief executive, Bill Sweeney, has now said the sport needs an urgent government bailout. In a statement, Sweeney said playing this autumn’s Tests and the Six Nations behind closed doors would see losses spiral above £100m. The other home unions are in a similar boat with an increasing possibility that, with Cardiff’s Principality Stadium unavailable, Wales will be forced to face England at a deserted Parc y Scarlets in November. The finances of the club game are even more precarious, with Exeter’s Tony Rowe suggesting every Premiership club is currently losing an estimated £1m per month. Further down the pyramid none of the other leagues in England have been permitted to restart and Sweeney said that the community game would lose up to £86m in revenue as fans are forced to stay away. The RFU’s losses, the statement continued, would make it impossible to invest in elite women’s rugby and the community game . Robert Kitson Continue reading...
