They bungled the restart and conceded a penalty to give Irish an attacking platform. With McNally lying injured on the floor, the home side took advantage with more quick passing creating a second for Loader. McNally departed with a wrist injury before Bath’s woes continued with a yellow card for Bayliss for a deliberate off-side. This proved disastrous as they conceded two tries in the No 8’s absence. Hassell-Collins strolled over on both occasions to complete his hat-trick, with Jackson converting both for a 35-5 interval lead.

Niall Annett scored two tries for Bath, while Gabriel Hamer-Webb, Matt Gallagher, Joe Cokanasiga and Piers Francis were also on the try-scoring sheet, with Orlando Bailey adding three conversions. Irish opened the scoring with their first attack. Will Joseph burst away before feeding Jackson who sent Hassell-Collins flying over.

First flanker Van Velze was forced to leave the field with a wrist injury before Irish hit them with a superb second try.
Bayliss returned from the restart in time to see his side pick up the first score of the second half with a try from Gallagher. Bath continued to have the better of the third quarter and it came as no surprise when Cokanasiga forced his way over. A comeback looked to be on the cards but Irish soon quelled this threat when Loader raced in under the sticks to complete his hat-trick. A try from Annett from a driving line-out gave Bath a bonus point, with Irish lock Api Ratuniyarawa sin-binned for collapsing it before Annett scored a second to reward a much-improved second-half effort from the visitors.
We got another four try bonus points two weeks in a row. If you score 33 points in a game of rugby you should be good enough to win, but you can't concede more than 40. " "When we started on the 11th of July we said there would be accountability for all. We've moved on from the past, but there still is some potential hangover from last season. But that's in the past, we need to fix what we can right here and right now. We have to look at that and go again. " Bath had no answers to the slick handling of the home backs in the opening period, with their cause not being helped by early injuries to forwards GJ van Velze and Josh McNally, and a yellow card for Josh Bayliss.
However, Jackson weaved his way over to emphasise his side’s superiority before Francis took advantage of another Irish yellow card handed out to Will Goodrick-Clarke to leave Bath two points short of a second bonus point.

Joe McCarthy will be available to train this week following his return from the Graduated Return to Play Protocols and has joined up with the Ireland squad ahead of their game with Australia at Aviva Stadium on Saturday. There was also positive news on Harry Byrne, Jordan Larmour and Rónan Kelleher who will all step up their rehabilitation this week as they return from hamstring, foot and hamstring injuries respectively.
On Saturday, wingers Ollie Hassell-Collins and Ben Loader both scored hat-tricks as London Irish produced a breathtaking first-half performance which blew Bath away. Irish led 35-5 at the interval before the home side took their foot off the pedal to allow Bath to stage a spirited rally as the game ended 47-38.

Unfortunately, Cullen had bad news on a number of players and back row forward Martin Moloney in particular. Moloney, who has featured off the bench three times for Leinster so far this season, injured his ACL late in the game against Scarlets and had a procedure last week on his knee. As a result, he will be unavailable for the rest of the season. In addition, while not as serious an injury, Ciarán Frawley also has a knee injury and will have a procedure tomorrow and will be unavailable for a number of months. Cullen also confirmed that Robbie Henshaw has returned to Leinster Rugby where he will be assessed for a hamstring injury. There were no further updates on the following players: Ryan Baird (concussion), Will Connors (bicep), James Lowe (calf), James Tracy (neck), Charlie Ryan (knee) and Tommy O’Brien (knee).

Unfortunately we gave them 35 in the first half, so we've just got to keep improving on that. The start wasn't good enough, the second half was excellent. "No excuses from my side, we need to perform for 80 minutes. We as a group need to figure out why we've started out that way two weeks in a row. "We stuck to the things we set out to do, clearly the rugby we're playing is working, it's just the execution in the first half. Unfortunately, the fact is that's another loss. I can't say I'm proud of the performance, but I'm proud of the reaction of the guys in the second half.
But they lost 55-26 at home to Leicester, taking nothing. And they lost 41-27 at Harlequins, again taking nothing. They also lost at Wasps, securing just a single point from a 26-20 defeat. So from that five-game span, they secured just five points from a possible 25 - and yet they still managed to make the play-offs! They are already a point up on the previous campaign, having managed to salvage a losing bonus point in their 29-22 defeat at Sale last Sunday. And now they will be desperate to at least match their London Irish result this weekend. If they can, and they manage to pick up far more than a single point against their next three opponents, you could say progress is being made.

And that is the least you can ask for. Saints will be eager to comfortably outdo last season's points tally, which proved to be enough to secure fourth place. They know they must be better in the big games if they are to elevate themselves to where they want to be. But London Irish continue to take steps forward, so this season's fixture should be even tougher than the one at the Gardens last time round - and that was very tough indeed! Saints are able to welcome back the likes of Dan Biggar and Rory Hutchinson here. And they will soon be able to select Courtney Lawes, Lewis Ludlam and Tommy Freeman again.

Bath looked in danger of being overrun but it was their turn to produce a flowing move which culminated in a try for Hamer-Webb, but it only took a minute for them to concede another try.
