Singha Premiership Rugby 7s Live on TV

There’s a bonanza of Singha Premiership Rugby 7s live on BT Sport this weekend.

Coverage of Group B at Gloucester kicks off tonight at 7pm on BT Sport 1.
 
This is the third time that Gloucester has hosted one of the 7s rounds and it is always a fantastic occasion. Last year saw 211 points and 33 tries scored.
 
The 2013 and 2014 7s Champions, Gloucester Rugby, will be hoping that Kingsholm remains a 7s fortress as Bath Rugby, Exeter Rugby and London Irish aim to take their crown.
 
Twenty four hours later – on Thursday night – Wasps will be hosting Harlequins, Northampton Saints and Saracens for Group C with live coverage on BT Sport 1 from 7pm.
 
Wasps have put out a strong team with Elliot Daly, Guy Thompson and Christian Wade in the mix as they aim to make the Series Final at the Twickenham Stoop on 28 August for the second time. They'll be put to the test by Harlequins and Northampton Saints who made last year's final, and Saracens who were the inaugural champions in 2010.
 
Then rounding off this weekend of super 7s is Group D at Kingston Park where all of the action will be live on BT Sport 1 from 3.30pm.
 
Last year, Newcastle Falcons hosted a leg in Darlington, topping their group on the night and breaking the Northern Echo Arena's attendance record in the process.

As the Singha Premiership Rugby 7s visits Falcons' home ground for the first time, Kingston Park's 3G pitch promises a night of fast and furious 7s rugby as Falcons entertain Leicester Tigers, Sale Sharks and Worcester Warriors.
 
Newcastle are the only Premiership Rugby side with a 100% success rate in reaching the Series Final every time they have participated in the 7s so will be hoping to progress to the final for the fifth time.
