BT Sport set for Premiership Rugby Cup semi-finals
We have reached the business end of the Premiership Rugby Cup with two enthralling semi-finals live on TV this weekend.
Friday’s contest sees Worcester Warriors and Saracens clash at Sixways, with live coverage from 7:30pm on BT Sport 1 ahead of a 7.45pm kick off.
Worcester secured top-spot in Pool 2 – and a crucial semi-final home tie – after running in four second-half tries against Wasps to earn a bonus-point and leapfrog Saracens at the summit.
Saracens are unbeaten in the competition so far and remain the only team to have beaten Worcester on their route to the final four.
The action continues at midday on Saturday as the Northampton Saints and Newcastle Falcons do battle at Franklin’s Gardens.
