Aviva Premiership Rugby Live on BT Sport

With the Aviva Premiership Rugby clubs welcoming back their international players and five rounds to go until the semi-finals it’s a big Easter weekend for teams at both ends of the table live on BT Sport 1.

There are Aviva Premiership Rugby double headers on Saturday and Sunday, with a massive 2nd v 1st game kicking off this weekend’s TV action. Coverage of Saracens v Exeter Chiefs starts at 3pm on BT Sport 1.

Saracens find themselves in unfamiliar territory not being in the top spot in the Aviva Premiership Rugby table for the first time this season after winning one of their last four matches, against London Irish in New Jersey, USA on 12 March.

Exeter Chiefs’ win over Northampton Saints took them to the top of the Aviva Premiership Rugby table for only the fourth time in their history. Chiefs only defeat in their last five Aviva Premiership Rugby fixtures was 27-31 at Leicester on 6 March.

The second game of the day is just as important with a 10th v 12th clash as Worcester Warriors host London Irish kicking off at 5.30pm.

London Irish’s 23-18 victory at home to Gloucester Rugby on Sunday ended a run of five successive defeats.

If Worcester Warriors continue their winning streak, it will be the first time that they have won four successive Premiership Rugby matches.

Sunday’s double header coverage starts at noon on Sunday on BT Sport 1 with Sale Sharks v Leicester Tigers kicking off at 1pm.

Sale Sharks have had one victory in their last five Aviva Premiership Rugby matches – 29-23 at home to Harlequins on 5 March but have not lost in any competition at the AJ Bell Stadium since Harlequins were the visitors in Aviva Premiership Rugby on 25 April 2015.

Leicester Tigers only defeat in their last four rounds of Aviva Premiership Rugby was 36-24 away to Wasps on 12 March.

Sale beat Tigers 10-3 at Welford Road on 6 February but have only achieved a season’s Premiership Rugby double over Tigers once before, in the 2007-08 season.

Northampton Saints v Harlequins rounds off the weekend live on BT Sport 1 at 3.15pm. 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.

Northampton Saints’ only defeat in any competition at Franklin’s Gardens since early November was 11-24 to Wasps on 29 January.

Harlequins have lost their last four Aviva Premiership Rugby away games since beating Worcester Warriors 24-20 at Sixways on 3 January.

Saints have won their last six fixtures against Harlequins in all tournaments since Quins’ 22-19 Aviva Premiership Rugby victory at The Stoop in May 2013.
