Premiership Rugby clubs in live TV European action

BTSport-2101

With five quarter final places up for grabs in the European Rugby Champions Cup and six in the European Rugby Challenge Cup, it’s going to be a riveting final round of European action with eight Premiership Rugby clubs live on TV.

Saracens are away to Toulouse first up in the European Rugby Champions Cup, on Saturday.  Live on Sky Sports at 1pm, Sarries have already secured a home quarter final spot but will be hoping to continue their winning run in this year’s competition. The clubs have met five times before with Saracens with a one win advantage with three wins to Toulouse’s two wins.

Bath Rugby host RC Toulon live on BT Sport at 3.15pm, on the same day. There are no confirmed quarter finalists in Pool 5 at the moment but Toulon and Wasps are in the driving seat with 16 points and 15 points respectively.

Wasps will be in action against Leinster Rugby at the same time as Bath Rugby, also on BT Sport. Wasps are undefeated when hosting Leinster Rugby in the Champions Cup (W2, D1) and sit second in Pool 5 by the slenderest of margins. Leinster haven't won a game away from home in the Champions Cup since October 2014, and haven't won an away game to an English opponent since December 2013.

Scarlets v Northampton Saints at 5.30pm on Sky Sports is the last live European game featuring a Premiership Rugby team on Saturday. Saints still have the chance to reach the knockout stages if they can beat their Welsh opponents. Scarlets are without a win so far in this year’s competition.

Sunday sees Leicester Tigers travelling to Stade Francais Paris for the final round with coverage on BT Sport at 1pm. Tigers are already the proud owners of a home quarter final but have the chance of cementing that achievement with a 100% record in the pool stages.

Exeter Chiefs v Ospreys is the final European Rugby Champions Cup game of the weekend and is live on BT Sport at 3.15pm. Exeter lie third in Pool 2 on 11 points with their opponents Ospreys topping the pool on 16.

The live TV European Rugby Challenge Cup action kicks off with Sale Sharks hosting Newport Gwent Dragons at 7.45pm on Sky Sports tonight (Thursday). Sale Sharks have won eight of their 10 matches against teams from Wales in the Challenge Cup, though they lost their last clash with Newport 30-12 on 15 November.

Friday sees Harlequins travel to Montpellier with coverage live on BT Sport at 7.45pm. Harlequins have been the victors in all three of the sides past Challenge Cup meetings and Harlequins have won six of their last eight away matches in the competition.
