Anglo-Welsh Cup semi-finals on BT Sport and ITV Sport

Four Anglo-Welsh Cup semi-finalists and four former champions return to your screens this weekend to go toe-to-toe on BT Sport.

Two-time Anglo-Welsh Cup winners Leicester Tigers face a daunting task in travelling to Allianz Park – where Saracens have not been defeated in over a year – where the Welford Road side lost 29-20 in their final group game.

Tigers are the only side to have lifted the trophy twice, while Saracens will look to keep up their quest to match their Aviva Premiership Rugby rivals with a second crown when they kick-off at 6pm live on BT Sport 1 on  Saturday.

Coverage begins at 5.45pm from Saracens’ fortress, while on Sunday you can watch Exeter Chiefs – who sealed their only Anglo-Welsh Cup in 2014 before losing to Saracens in the 2015 final – take on Harlequins at Sandy Park.

The two sides have already met once in this year’s competition, with last year’s Aviva Premiership Rugby finalists Exeter losing out 29-15.

Harlequins have the added incentive of knowing a win will take them back on home turf, with the final set to be played at Twickenham Stoop.

Coverage will be live from 2.45pm with a 3pm kick-off live on BT Sport 1 and  BT Sport 4K UHD.

If that wasn’t enough, you can catch up on all the highlights on ITV at 11.50pm on Sunday and again on ITV4 at 7pm on Monday, as well as a final chance when Rugby Tonight Extra airs on BT Sport 1, 11pm Wednesday.
