Aviva Premiership Rugby Live on TV – Two Rounds to Go

BTSport-0705

Northampton Saints might have secured a semi-final spot but Bath Rugby, Saracens, Leicester Tigers, Exeter Chiefs and Wasps Rugby are still in the hunt for the remaining top four slots and they are all live on BT Sport this weekend.

Bath Rugby travel to Harlequins for Friday Night Lights with coverage from 7pm on BT Sport 2.
 
Harlequins need the maximum five points from their last two fixtures for any hope of qualifying for the European Rugby Champions Cup next year. Their only loss in their last four fixtures was to Saracens at Wembley on 28 March.

Bath Rugby have won their last four Aviva Premiership Rugby matches and have the second best away form in the tournament behind Northampton Saints. Bath require one win from their remaining two fixtures to reach the semi-finals for the first time since 2010.

Currently sixth and fourth in the Aviva Premiership Rugby table, Wasps play Leicester Tigers on Saturday with BT Sport 1 live from 3pm.
 
The Ricoh Arena will achieve its first sell-out for a rugby game and will break its own record for the highest attendance at a Premiership Rugby match outside of Twickenham and Wembley on Saturday.

Wasps have the best home form in Aviva Premiership Rugby having lost just once on their own turf in the tournament this season.

Leicester Tigers only defeat in the last seven Aviva Premiership Rugby rounds came at Saracens on 11 April.

Only two sides have a better away record this season in the competition than Leicester – Bath and Northampton.
 
Then the high stakes action continues on Sunday, with Saracens hosting Exeter Chiefs live on BT Sport 2 from 1pm.
 
As it stands a maximum point victory will guarantee Saracens participation in the Aviva Premiership Rugby semi-finals for a sixth successive year – less if other results go their way. Saracens have lost their last two first team fixtures but have not lost three in a row since 2009/10.
 
Exeter’s only victory on the road in the tournament since November was 32-21 at Harlequins in round 15.

If you want to be at the world's biggest club rugby final, this year's Aviva Premiership Rugby Final on 30 May, tickets are still available from www.tickethour.co.uk/premierrugby. Junior tickets start at £12.50.
