BT Sport ready for Gallagher Premiership Rugby double bill

BT Sport ready for Gallagher Premiership Rugby double bill

BT Sport are all set to serve up a couple of Gallagher Premiership Rugby crackers this weekend, with Friday night and Sunday lunchtime’s entertainment all taken care of.

Gloucester Rugby are well known to relish the Friday night lights at Kingsholm – look no further than last week’s thrilling 24-17 triumph over Exeter Chiefs for evidence.

And Johan Ackermann’s side will hope to topple two league leaders in as many weeks as Saracens come to town to test their mettle.

Mark McCall’s men capitalised on the Chiefs’ defeat in Round 13 as they returned to the summit thanks to a 33-10 victory over Leicester Tigers.

It was the Londoners who ran out winners in the return fixture at Allianz Park, but a closer affair is in the offing this time around after a 38-15 scoreline back in September, with kick-off slated for 7.45pm and all the action live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 4K UHD from 7pm.

Gallagher Premiership Rugby returns to the TV screen again at 12.30pm on Sunday, with Leicester Tigers’ trip to Worcester Warriors all set for BT Sport 2, kick-off at 1pm.

After defeat to Saracens last time out, Geordan Murphy’s Tigers will look to get back to winning habits at Sixways.

But it was Worcester who emerged from Welford Road with the points after a 44-37 victory in the reverse fixture back in September, a result they’ll be desperate to repeat, especially in the wake of a 47-33 defeat at Harlequins last weekend.

And if you miss any of the live action, a round-up of all the weekend’s games in Gallagher Premiership Rugby will be available on the Channel 5 highlights show at 7pm on Monday.
