Premiership Rugby Cup – Derby Day fixtures confirmed
Premiership Rugby can confirm the West Country derby between Bristol Bears and Exeter Chiefs in the Premiership Rugby Cup will be screened live on BT Sport.
When the Premiership Rugby Cup returns in January it will also deliver Premiership Rugby’s first in-season break, guaranteeing players and management a minimum of one week off, with six Derby Day fixtures.
The clash at Ashton Gate between the Bears and the Chiefs will be a 3pm kick off on Saturday 26 January, with both teams still battling for a place in the semi-finals.
On the same day – both with 3pm kick offs – two other local derbies will take place with Harlequins hosting Saracens and Leicester Tigers travelling to Northampton Saints.
Worcester Warriors have the best Premiership Rugby Cup record and their fast start ensures they will be shown live on BT Sport on the second weekend of Round 4, taking on Wasps on Sunday 3 February, kick off 3pm.
The Warriors have scored 14 tries in their three matches so far to top Pool 3 on points difference from Saracens.
