Premiership Rugby clubs in European TV action

All seven of the Premiership Rugby clubs in the European Rugby Champions Cup will be in action live on TV this weekend.

Only one club, title holders, RC Toulon, are through to the quarter-finals so far. At this stage last season, six clubs had secured their passage into the last eight. It's never been tighter heading into Round 6 with so many clubs in the hunt to be one of the five pool winners and three best runners-up who make it to the knockout stages.

Wasps will be kicking off the live TV action this weekend when they welcome Leinster Rugby to the Ricoh Arena on Saturday. The game kicks off at 1pm live on BT Sport. This is a winner takes all shoot-out between the pool 2 leaders to see who will top the group. If Wasps win and top the pool they will make history by qualifying for the knockout stage after losing their opening two pool games.

Fellow Pool 2 members, Harlequins, travel to Castres Olympique also kicking off at 1pm live on BT Sport and beIN Sports. Harlequins will need to take all five points in Castres to have any hope of qualification.

Kicking off at 3.15pm, Northampton Saints will play Racing Metro 92 live on BT Sport and beIN Sports. Franklin’s Gardens will be the scene of another shoot-out with both teams on 19 points.  The winner will bag a home quarter-final while the loser will be a strong contender for one of the best runner-up places.

Saints East Midlands rivals Leicester Tigers will be travelling to Ulster with kick-off at 5.30pm on Sky Sports. Tigers must win to stay in the hunt for a best runner-up spot.

On Sunday, Bath Rugby v Glasgow Warriors are first up on BT Sport with kick-off at 1pm. Fresh from their Round 5 success in Toulouse, Bath (like Wasps) could make history by qualifying for the knockout stage after losing their opening two pool games.

Next up, Sale Sharks travel to Munster Rugby and will be live on Sky Sports at 3.15pm. Sharks Danny Cipriani has the best success rate from the boot (92%) of any player to attempt over 10 kicks at goal in the Champions Cup this season.

Rounding off the weekend’s action, Saracens travel to ASM Clermont Auvergne kicking off at 3.15pm live on BT Sport, FR2 and beIn Sports. Both sides have scored 12 tries so far this season, while Saracens have conceded just three more points (77) than Clermont’s (74).
