Bath Rugby v Sale Sharks re-arranged Aviva Premiership Rugby match

Premiership Rugby can today confirm that Bath Rugby’s rearranged Aviva Premiership Rugby match against Sale Sharks will take place on Wednesday 13 April, unless the Sharks fail to progress to the semi-finals of the European Rugby Challenge Cup.

The original match was postponed as a consequence of the terror attacks in Paris which led to re-arrangement of a number of European fixtures including Bath Rugby’s trip to Toulon.
 
•    New date: Wednesday 13 April
•    If Sale Sharks do not win their European Rugby Challenge Cup quarter final against Montpellier, the match at the Recreation Ground will be played on Saturday 23 April
•    A further consequence is that the Sale Sharks v Bath Aviva Premiership match at the AJ Bell Stadium will now be played on Sunday 17 April for player welfare reasons
 
“Player welfare is Premiership Rugby’s number one priority so we will always try to avoid midweek fixtures wherever we can,” explained Phil Winstanley, Rugby Director at Premiership Rugby.
 
“We are trying to deal with some pretty exceptional circumstances caused by the tragic events in Paris in a year when we already had significant congestion caused by the delay to the season start due to the Rugby World Cup.

"We are hopeful that Sale progress through their quarter final of the European Challenge Cup and, if this is the case, we have no alternative but to play a midweek fixture.  However, we need to avoid this if at all possible and if Sale don’t progress through to the semi-final we will be rescheduling the fixture on 23 April.
 
“We fully understand the difficulties that this creates for both Clubs and thank them for their cooperation in finding the right solution.”
