Three thrilling Aviva Premiership Rugby games live on TV screens

Three thrilling Aviva Premiership Rugby games live on TV screens

As international rugby takes a break this weekend there is a feast of Aviva Premiership Rugby to keep you entertained – including a cracker at the Ricoh Arena.

The final fixture of Round 15 is the exciting contest between Wasps and Exeter Chiefs, where two of the league’s top three sides do battle.

Defending Champions Exeter enjoyed a bonus-point win when these two sides met in September, beating Wasps 31-17.

But the Chiefs will be looking to bounce back from a 6-5 home defeat to Worcester Warriors last weekend.

Wasps, who won 44-22 away at Harlequins last time out, could bring themselves within touching distance of the league leaders if they can win on Sunday.

Watch the action live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 4K, with coverage beginning at 2.30pm on Sunday.

The weekend’s opening fixture comes on Friday night as Sale Sharks host Saracens, live on BT Sport 1, with coverage beginning at 7pm.

The Sharks have won five of their last six Aviva Premiership Rugby games and another victory would keep them on the charge.

Saracens emerged victorious in the reverse fixture in September, easing to a 41-13 bonus-point win, and can keep up the pressure on Exeter by repeating that feat on Friday.

Meanwhile, Leicester Tigers take on Harlequins in Saturday’s televised game and the two sides are just a point apart in eighth and ninth place respectively.

John Kingston’s troops suffered a 44-22 home defeat against 14-man Wasps last time out while Leicester lost at Gloucester Rugby, so both teams will be looking to bounce back here.

Leicester edged a tight game at The Stoop in September when these two last met, winning 31-28, and this game kicks off at 3pm on Saturday, with the action being shown live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 4K from 2.30pm.
