Aviva Premiership Rugby Live on BT Sport

There are just six rounds to go before the 2015-16 Aviva Premiership Rugby Season moves into the knockout stages.

Friday’s live TV game sees Bath Rugby v Newcastle Falcons on BT Sport 2 from 7pm (7.45pm kick-off).

Newcastle beat Bath 19-14 at Kingston Park in January but have only achieved a Premiership Rugby double over them once before – when they were champions in the inaugural 1987-8 season .

Two crucial top-six battles are in store for a Super Sunday from noon on BT Sport 1.

First up sees 2nd v 4th as Exeter Chiefs welcome Northampton Saints to Sandy Park with a 1pm kick-off.

Chiefs are the best home side in the tournament earning 32 league points from their eight fixtures at Sandy Park so far this season. Northampton Saints have joined Wasps as best sides in Aviva Premiership Rugby on current form. Both teams have achieved 24 league points from a possible 30 over the last 6 rounds.

The weekend wraps up with a 5th v 1st clash as Leicester Tigers v Saracens kicks off live on BT Sport 1 on Sunday at 3.15pm.

Leicester Tigers only defeat at Welford Road in any tournament over the last year was 3-10 to Sale Sharks on 6 February. Saracens have fared better on the road than at home this season, picking up two more league points on their travels than at home.
