Aviva Premiership Rugby Live on BT Sport

BTSport-1002

We kick off the second half of the 2015-16 Aviva Premiership Rugby season this weekend en route to the final on 28 May at Twickenham.

The live TV action starts on Friday night on BT Sport 1 when Leicester Tigers travel to Kingston Park, for a 7.45pm kick-off. Coverage of the game starts at 7pm.

Newcastle Falcons’ last five Aviva Premiership Rugby games have all been won by the home side but Tigers have won their last 11 Premiership Rugby fixtures against Falcons since Newcastle’s 14-10 victory at Kingston Park in March 2009.

There are no live matches on Saturday but Sunday sees Saracens v Wasps live on BT Sport 1 from 3pm with kick-off at 4pm.

If he plays, Charlie Hodgson will draw level with Tom May on 247 Premiership Rugby appearances, a total only beaten by George Chuter and Steve Borthwick, who tops the list with 265.

Wasps have won their last three Aviva Premiership Rugby matches but Saracens have won their last nine games against Wasps in all tournaments since Wasps 20-15 victory at Twickenham in the 2011 London Double Header. The match kicks off at 4pm following England's RBS 6 Nations clash in Rome.
