Wasps take one of the best records in Aviva Premiership Rugby to Newcastle on Friday night to kick off the live BT Sport coverage this weekend. The coverage is live on BT Sport 2 at 7pm.
Wasps only defeat in the last five rounds of Aviva Premiership Rugby was 26-39 in their most recent away game at Bath on 10 January. Falcons have won one of their last six Aviva Premiership Rugby matches: 38-7 at home to London Welsh in Round 13.
Saturday’s coverage of the top of the table clash between Bath Rugby and Northampton Saints starts at 3pm on BT Sport 1. Bath are building a formidable home record and have not been beaten at The Rec since Sale made the trip south on 28 March 2014.

London Irish host Leicester Tigers to round off the weekend on Sunday. The programme starts at 1pm on BT Sport 2 with kick-off at 2pm.
