The first live Aviva Premiership Rugby TV action of 2015 sees Northampton Saints play Newcastle Falcons live on BT Sport 1 on Friday with coverage from 7pm.

Saints have won their last six matches in all tournaments since losing at home to Exeter Chiefs in round 7 of Aviva Premiership Rugby. Newcastle Falcons have lost their last three fixtures in Aviva Premiership Rugby since they beat Gloucester at Kingston Park in round 8.

Saturday sees a double header of live Aviva Premiership Rugby action on BT Sport 1.  Coverage starts at 1pm with Saracens v London Irish first up.
 
The last four contests between the two clubs have been evenly split with two wins apiece, with London Irish being one of only two teams ever to have beaten Saracens at Allianz Park – the other being Northampton Saints, twice.
 
Exeter Chiefs welcome west country rivals Gloucester for the second half of Saturday’s double bill.
 
Exeter Chiefs have slipped to back-to-back defeats at Sale and at Bath, but have not lost three in a row in Aviva Premiership Rugby since February. Gloucester have won three of their last four away games in all competitions.
 
Sunday’s coverage sees old foes Leicester Tigers v Bath Rugby live on BT Sport 2 with coverage from 1pm.

Leicester have lost just once at Welford Road in the tournament since November 2013: 19-22 to London Irish on 27 September. Bath Rugby have won their last seven matches in all competitions since their 6-18 defeat at Exeter Chiefs in the Anglo-Welsh Cup in November.
