Aviva Premiership Rugby Final Round Live on TV

There are two Aviva Premiership Rugby semi-final spots left to fill and with all of the games of the last round kicking off at 3.30pm we have a glorious Super Saturday in store.

BT Sport will keep you up to date with all six encounters showing Leicester Tigers v Northampton Saints and Exeter Chiefs v Sale Sharks live.

It’s likely that Leicester Tigers will need a victory to reach the Aviva Premiership Rugby semi-finals for an 11th straight year, on BT Sport 1 from 3pm.
 
Tigers have lost only one of their last eight Aviva Premiership Rugby encounters: 6-22 at Saracens in round 19, while their only loss at Welford Road in the tournament since November 2013 came when London Irish were the visitors on 27 September. 
 
Northampton Saints have already confirmed a home semi-final and their position as number one seeds for the first time, and will play in a sixth successive semi-final. Saints only defeat in the last eight rounds of Aviva Premiership Rugby was 10-21 at Exeter on 12 April. 
 
Semi-final contenders Exeter Chiefs will also host Sale Sharks on Saturday with coverage from 3.15pm on BT Sport 2.
 
Exeter Chiefs will probably require a bonus point victory to give themselves a chance of a semi-final place – less if other results go their way. Chiefs only defeat at Sandy Park in any tournament since mid-September was at the hands of Gloucester Rugby in Aviva Premiership Rugby on 3 January. 
 
Sale Sharks must win to keep themselves in the hunt for a European Rugby Champions Cup spot in 2016-17 but have only won once on the road since November: 52-12 at London Welsh in Aviva Premiership Rugby on 15 February. 
 
If you want to be at the world's biggest club rugby final, this year's Aviva Premiership Rugby Final on 30 May, tickets are still available from Premiershiprugby.com/final. Junior tickets start at £12.50.
