Aviva Premiership Rugby Live on TV – Five Rounds to Go

RugbyCamera-2603

With five rounds to go, Aviva Premiership Rugby is back with some massive games. Franklin’s Gardens is the venue for Friday Night Lights with Northampton Saints v Wasps live on BT Sport 2 from 7pm.

Northampton Saints have suffered only one defeat in their last 10 Aviva Premiership Rugby matches: 7 – 20 at Sale Sharks in round 13. Saints have lost just once in Aviva Premiership Rugby at Franklin’s Gardens since 29 March 2014 when Exeter Chiefs were the winners on 14 November.

Wasps are Aviva Premiership Rugby’s top try scorers this season with 60, but only 10 of their 48 league points have come from away games. Wasps only away victory in the tournament in the past 12 months came at Gloucester on 28 December.

Saturday’s big game is on track to be a record breaker as Saracens v Harlequins take their game to Wembley.  All of the action will be live on BT Sport 1 from 2.45pm.

The current world record attendance for a club rugby match is 83,889, set at last year's Wembley game and Saracens are on course to beat it this time around.

Saracens only defeat in their last eight matches in all competitions was at Sale Sharks in Aviva Premiership Rugby on 21 February. Sarries record in their last seven visits to Wembley Stadium in all tournaments is an even won three, drawn one, lost three.

Harlequins ended a five-game losing run in all tournaments with their 26 – 20 victory over London Irish at the Twickenham Stoop in round 17. Harlequins have lost their last three away games but have not lost four in a row on their travels since February 2012.

Sale Sharks v Gloucester Rugby rounds off the weekend live on BT Sport 2 from 1pm on Sunday.

Sale Sharks have lost their last two Aviva Premiership Rugby matches, away fixtures at Leicester Tigers and Bath Rugby. Sharks only defeat at the AJ Bell Stadium in the tournament since the opening weekend came when Leicester Tigers were the visitors on 27 December.

Gloucester have lost their last two away games in the competition since beating Exeter 26 – 25 at Sandy Park on 3 January. Gloucester beat Sale 34 – 27 at Kingsholm in round 2, but have not achieved a season’s double over Sharks since the 2001-02 season.
