Aviva Premiership Rugby Live on TV

BTSportCamera

There are some festive Aviva Premiership Rugby crackers live on BT Sport this weekend, kicking off on Saturday with a double header on BT Sport 1.

Bath Rugby welcome Exeter Chiefs to the Rec for a west country derby kicking off at 2pm, coverage starting an hour earlier.

Bath Rugby are one of two sides to have a 100% home winning record in Aviva Premiership Rugby this season – the other being Wasps.

Exeter Chiefs eight-game winning run in all tournaments ended at Sale Sharks last Friday evening but Chiefs have not lost successive Aviva Premiership Rugby encounters since last May.

The two clubs have met on eight previous occasions in Premiership Rugby with Bath undefeated, although they did draw 12-all at Sandy Park on 29 December 2012.

After the match at the Rec, it’s off to a packed Twickenham for Big Game 7.  Northampton Saints are the visitors to Harlequins annual Christmas fixture this year with kick-off at 4.30pm, in front of more than 80,000 fans.

Not only will the game be live on BT Sport 1 but UK viewers can watch the game free either online at www.btsport.com or on TV via BT TV and Sky platforms. Republic of Ireland viewers can watch on the Sky platform. Click here to find out more.

Harlequins have won on their last six visits to Twickenham, whilst their only two defeats in the six previous Big Games were against Wasps in 2009 and Saracens in 2011.

Northampton Saints only defeat in their last eight Aviva Premiership Rugby fixtures was at home to Exeter Chiefs in round 7. Big Game 7 will see Saints return for the first time to the scene of their maiden Aviva Premiership Rugby title win in May 2014. Saints overall record at Twickenham is won three, lost five.

The live TV action on Sunday comes from Gloucester Rugby v Wasps with coverage from 2.15pm on BT Sport 1.

Gloucester Rugby’s home defeat to Bath on Saturday ended a three game winning run in all tournaments. Gloucester have lost three of their last four Premiership Rugby encounters at Kingsholm following a victory over Leicester Tigers in Round 5.

Wasps have won their last three matches in all tournaments but have not won four in a row since the turn of the New Year. Wasps record in Aviva Premiership Rugby this season is five wins from five at home and five losses from five away.
