Premiership: Bath 33-18 London Irish

Bath made it three wins from their first four Premiership outings with a routine home win against London Irish.

The hosts claimed a bonus point within 34 minutes, with Jonathan Joseph, Guy Mercer (2), George Ford and Rob Webber all crossing in the first half.

But they were unable to add any further scores in the second period.

Shane Geraghty scored all 18 points for the visitors, including two tries, but the Exiles could not close the deficit enough to force a losing bonus point.
