Aviva Premiership Rugby clubs in Europe live on TV

With four out of five European Rugby Champions Cup and three out of five Challenge Cup groups topped by Aviva Premiership Rugby clubs, there’s another exciting weekend of European rugby in store.

Eight Aviva Premiership Rugby clubs feature in live TV matches kicking off with Gloucester Rugby v Worcester Warriors tonight (Thursday) live on Sky Sports at 7.45pm.
 
Gloucester will be aiming for a 13th consecutive win and seventh straight victory at home in the Challenge Cup. If they win tonight, it would be their second longest home winning streak in the competition (W10, 1997-2002). Worcester Warriors haven't beaten a fellow English side since the 2007-08 semi-final when they defeated Newcastle Falcons 31-16.
 
Friday sees Northampton Saints welcoming Racing 92 to Franklin’s Gardens live on BT Sport at 7.45pm. Racing 92 are undefeated in three matches against Northampton Saints after a 33-3 victory in their round 3 encounter last weekend. They are two of just four teams that haven’t lost a scrum against the head.
 
Saturday’s double header kicks off with Saracens v Oyonnax at 1pm on Sky Sports. Saracens will be looking to continue their unbeaten start to their European Rugby Champions Cup Pool 1 campaign.
 
It’s an all Aviva Premiership Rugby encounter as Wasps travel to The Rec for the second round of their head-to-head with Bath Rugby which will be live at 3.15pm on BT Sport.
 
Bath have won six of their last seven Champions Cup fixtures and Wasps have won three of their last four Champions Cup matches away from home by a margin of 15+ points on each occasion.
 
Sunday sees another double helping of European action starting with Exeter Chiefs travelling to ASM Clermont Auvergne live on Sky Sports at 3.15pm.
 
Exeter will be hoping for a repeat of the form which saw them beat the French giants 31-14 last weekend. The two teams have faced each other three times in the past with Clermont just ahead with two wins over Exeter’s one.
 
The European weekend draws to a close with Leicester Tigers v Munster at 5.15pm on BT Sport.
 
Leicester have won 26 and drawn two of their last 29 matches at home in the Champions Cup, their only loss being against an Irish opponent (Ulster). Munster have won five of their last eight away fixtures in the Champions Cup, their two losses being their last two away games.
