Aviva Premiership Rugby Live on BT Sport

This weekend marks the halfway point in the Aviva Premiership Rugby season with two big games live on BT Sport.

First up a west country derby on Friday night as Bath Rugby and Gloucester Rugby renew their old rivalry.

All of the action from The Rec will be live on BT Sport 1 from 7pm. Gloucester lie 8th in the table with Bath four points behind them. Both teams need to stem their recent losing streaks to move up the table into the European Rugby Champions Cup spots.

Sunday sees a top of the table epic as Saracens travel down to Devon to face Exeter Chiefs. This clash of the 2015-16 titans will be live on BT Sport 1 from noon. There are just two points between Saracens at the top of the table and Exeter Chiefs in hot pursuit.

Chiefs have won 15 home games in a row in all competitions and achieved the Aviva Premiership Rugby double over Saracens last season.

Saracens still have only one defeat on their record in all tournaments this season and have been receiving plaudits as the form team domestically and in Europe.
