BT Sport ready for trio of Gallagher Premiership Rugby clashes

BT Sport ready for trio of Gallagher Premiership Rugby clashes

After an incredible weekend of action in Gallagher Premiership Rugby that saw high-scoring matches, nail-biting drama and records broken – Round Three is here with a trio of televised matches.

Gloucester Rugby and Bristol Bears open the weekend’s action on Friday night, before Harlequins and Bath Rugby face off on Saturday, while Sunday sees Midlands rivals Wasps and Leicester Tigers meet in front of the TV cameras.

In an eye-catching tie in Round Three, Gloucester host West Country rivals Bristol Bears in Friday’s live match on BT Sport 2 as the Cherry and Whites look to maintain their unbeaten start to the season.

But with the Bears beating Bath Rugby last time they met one of their local rivals, what will happen this time around?

Meanwhile, on Saturday Harlequins will look to bounce back from defeat when they take on Bath on BT Sport 2 and BT Sport 4K UHD.

Denied their first victory of the season last time out against Gloucester thanks to a late try from Matt Banahan, Bath travel to Harlequins who proved indomitable when they hosted Sale on the opening weekend.

And tries will be expected on Sunday as Wasps and Leicester Tigers go head-to-head live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 4K UHD.

With Wasps playing out a thriller last weekend against Exeter Chiefs and Tigers claiming a bonus point inside the first-half against Newcastle Falcons – high scores should be expected when these two meet.

With new interim Leicester coach Geordan Murphy clinching his first win of his reign last week, how will his side get on when they travel to the Ricoh Arena on Sunday?

And if you miss any of the action, all highlights of course will be available on the Gallagher Premiership Rugby Highlights show at 7pm Monday on Channel 5.
