Two Premiership Rugby Cup clashes on BT Sport this weekend
The Premiership Rugby Cup returns this weekend after a stunning first round of matches with two fixtures set to grace the BT Sport cameras.
The competition started with a bang at the weekend with three teams securing bonus-point wins in the first round of fixtures.
First the BT Sport cameras will showcase the clash between Bristol Bears and Gloucester Rugby on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 4K UHD on Friday as the visitors look to secure back-to-back victories in the Pool stage.
The Cherry & Whites mounted a stunning start to their domestic cup campaign by securing a bonus point with four tries inside the first half an hour against Wasps while Bristol fell to Northampton Saints in Pool 3.
The second helping of TV action takes place on Sunday with Harlequins v Newcastle Falcons on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 4K UHD.
Harlequins will be hoping to continue from where they left off after Demetri Catrakilis’ 14 points downed Bath Rugby last weekend.
While Falcons travel in search of a first victory in the competition after being held to a 22-22 draw last time out against Exeter Chiefs despite a sensational hat-trick from wing Zach Kibirige.
More action takes place under the Friday nightlights with Sale Sharks hosting Saracens, while Exeter Chiefs face off against Bath on Saturday at Sandy Park.
Leicester Tigers also host Worcester Warriors on Saturday as Wasps take on Northampton Saints on Sunday.
