Aviva Premiership Rugby Live on BT Sport

There are three cracking Aviva Premiership Rugby games live on BT Sport this weekend with the first, Harlequins v Leicester Tigers, free for everyone to view on BT Sport Showcase.

Coverage of this game starts at 7pm on Friday on BT Sport 1 and the game can also be viewed free on BT Sport's Showcase channel which is available on Freeview on channel 59. UK viewers can also watch the game online at www.btsport.com, Sky and Virgin Media. 
 
Leicester Tigers sit third in the Aviva Premiership Rugby table with Harlequins only one point behind in fifth spot.
 
Harlequins’ recent record has been four straight defeats in all competitions since their 34-26 victory against Cardiff Blues at the Twickenham Stoop in the European Rugby Challenge Cup on 17 January.
 
Leicester Tigers’ only victory in their last four encounters was by a single point at Gloucester on 30 January.
 
Leicester came away with the spoils 22-19 when the two clubs met at Welford Road in round 2 this season but have not achieved a season’s double over Harlequins since 2010-11.
 
Saturday sees a fixture deep in history as Wasps travel to old rivals Bath Rugby. Coverage from The Rec starts at 2.45pm on BT Sport 1.
 
Bath Rugby’s six game losing run in all tournaments ended with their 16-14 win at Worcester Warriors in Aviva Premiership Rugby last Saturday.
 
Wasps are the best team in Aviva Premiership Rugby on current form with 19 league points from their last six encounters and a four game winning streak in the league.
 
It’s 2-1 to Wasps in the clubs’ previous three games this season. Wasps were the victors in the Aviva Premiership Rugby meeting at Ricoh Arena in October then each side won its respective away game in the back-to-back European Rugby Champions Cup meetings in December.
 
London Irish v Exeter Chiefs rounds off the weekend in a BT Sport 1 programme starting at 2pm.
 
London Irish have registered three victories in Aviva Premiership Rugby this season, all in the last six rounds and all at the Madejski Stadium, against Northampton Saints, Newcastle Falcons and Worcester Warriors.
 
Exeter Chiefs have lost three of their last five Aviva Premiership Rugby games. They are still in second place in the table but last season’s equivalent fixture saw Irish victorious 28-26 at the Madejski Stadium in January 2015.
